The Komta was not only the name of the aeroplane but also the name of the organisation set up to build it in the first place, under the chairmanship of Zhukovskii he of the ANT, Central Aero and Hydronamic Institute. The name comes from the "KOMissia po Tiazholot Aviatsii or the Commission for a Heavy Aircraft. The plane did not take to the air until late 1923 and by 1924 it had just about had it with the engines worn out. By this time Zhukovskii's protogee, one A.N.Tupolev, had taken over the design of large aircraft at the institute and so the KOMTA was no more; yet another dead end!
