The Kirill Klimov Experimental Design Bureau under the direction of Vladimir Yakovlevich Klimov (Влади́мир Я́ковлевич Кли́мов) (1892-1962) designed engines for Soviet aircraft. The OKB was formed in the early 1930s to produce and improve upon the liquid-cooled Hispano-Suiza 12Y V-12 piston engine for which the USSR had acquired a license. After World War II, Klimov OKB was given the task of producing and improving upon the British Rolls-Royce Derwent and Rolls-Royce Nene turbojets.
