Timur Arkadievich Gaidar (Russian: Тиму́р Арка́дьевич Гайда́р; December 8, 1926 – December 23, 1999) was a Soviet/Russian rear admiral, writer and journalist. He was supposed to be the prototype for Timur from Arkady Gaidar's book Timur and His Squad that was the inspiration for the Timurite movement.

Gaidar was born in Arkhangelsk, the son of famous writer Arkady Gaidar and Leah Lazarevna Solomyanskaya. He graduated from the Leningrad Naval School in 1948 and the faculty of journalism of the Lenin Military-Political Academy in 1954, and served on submarines of the Baltic Fleet and the Pacific Ocean Fleet. Beginning in 1957 he worked for newspapers, including The Soviet Fleet, The Red Star, and Pravda.

Gaidar died in Moscow. His widow is Ariadna Bazhova (born 1925, daughter of the Russian writer Pavel Bazhov). Yegor Gaidar, a Russian politician, was their son.
