This is my entry to the USSR Cold War Bomber challenge. I hope you like it!
The Tupolev TU-26 was a medium sized bomber used in combat alongside the Tupolev TU-95 ‘Bear.’ This aircraft was amazingly manoeuvrable for it’s size and really quick thanks to it’s two Non-after-burning Klimov RD-26.
This aircraft in some cases found itself in head-ons so a 50mm Kalashnikov Cannon was fitted to the right of the pilot. It sure packed a punch thanks to it’s x6 500 pound bombs. Capable of being used to take down convoys of US tanks and airfields. It even features it’s own tail gunner, fitted with x2 20mm guns.
