The Yakovlev Design Bureau developed many different types of vehicles since 1924. The Yakovlev Design Bureau possessed unique and extensive knowledge, especially with respect to light aircraft design. The Yakovlev Design Bureau has produced more than 200 types and modifications of aircraft: light, sport, passenger, all-purpose, fighters, bombers, interceptors and remote piloted vehicles. To date Yakovlev Design Bureau have produced 70 000 Yak aircraft.

When he became the head of the design bureau, Alexander Sergeevich called all his planes “AIR” in honor of the party and state leader Alexei Ivanovich Rykov. In the Soviet Union, it was then decided to praise political figures, and Yakovlev was no exception. In 1917, Alexey Rykov became one of the organizers of the October Revolution. In 1918, Rykov became the head of the Supreme Council for the National Economy (VSNH). Under his leadership, nationalization of industry was carried out. On February 2, 1924, professional revolutionist Alexei Rykov became chairman of the Council of USSR People’s Commissars.

In the post of Chairman of the Council of People's Commissars. In December 1924, he signed a decree abolishing Prohibition, which had been in force since the beginning of the First World War. This was done to fill the state budget. The first Soviet vodka came to the counters - it was nicknamed "rykovka" by the people by the name of the Council of People's Commissars Chairman. After the death of Lenin, he actively supported Stalin in the fight against Trotsky, and later against Zinoviev and Kamenev.

Such designations remained until February 1937. Alexei Ivanovich Rykov was expelled from the party and arrested on February 27, 1937. Contained in the Lubyanka prison. During interrogations, pleaded guilty. In the last word, he said: "I want those who have not yet been exposed and disarmed so that they immediately and openly do this." On March 13, 1938, he was sentenced to death and shot on March 15 at the Kommunar training ground. In 1988, Aleksey Rykov was fully rehabilitated by the USSR Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office and reinstated to the CPSU.

Then all the fighter planes created in the Yakovlev design bureau began to be called with the letter “I”, and then by numbers, and the first in this row was the plane “22” or BB-22. This was due to the exclusion of Rykov from the CPSU (b) and his subsequent arrest.

Since the summer of 1939, the aircraft "22" in the version of a passing bomber became officially called the BB-22, the reconnaissance aircraft - the R-12, and the fighter - the I-29. At the end of 1940, the BB-22 was once again renamed the Yak-2, and its modification with more powerful engines was changed into the Yak-4.
