ANT-20bis, A.N.Tupolev

Photo (b/w 28k) from TOTAVIA collection, managed by Adrian Cybriwsky;

When the ANT-20 was destroyed in May 1935, it was decided to start a production of a type as a strategic bomber. But only one ANT-20bis successor (board number L-760) was built. More powerful engines allowed to get rid of a tandem pair above the fuselage, what made 6-engine aircraft more aerodynamically clean.

It was also used as a transport.
