This is the Tupelov TB-3 designed by the Soviet Union during the second world war as a heavy bomber/transport plane. Some may know it as the Ant-3. That was the civilian designated name. The TB-3 has 2 variants of motors. The Curtiss V-1570 and the Mikulin M-17 this one uses the Mikulin M-17 motors. Some TB-3s had 1 to 3 I-16s as perisite fighters. Ok on to the specs of my plane... My Variant has 4 motors each at stock HP. There is 2 gunners one front gunner and one m mid way gunner. It flies around 175 mph when fling level at max speeds. Landing is difficult Step 1: Slow down to 70/90 mph (nothing above 90 or you will die) Step 2: Hold down brakes and level the plane Step 3: Cross your fingers Step 4: Click restart here. Well thats going to conclude my short description hope you enjoy!
