ANT-62, '62', Tu-2D by A.N.Tupolev/ STO-3/ OTB

The second (long nose) Tu-2D, Aircraft 100714 (52k b/w);
"History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.2 p.174

A Tu-2S long range variants (Number 100714 and 100718). Wingspan of both was substantially increased, additional fuel tanks installed in the wings. Tailplane span was also increased to 5.7m.

The second variant (picture above) had also increased crew (co-pilot added), extended redesigned nose (by 0.6m) containing navigator's seat. '62' could carry up to 4000kg of bombs, maximum caliber 3000kg.

Trial conclusion was that Tu-2D is superior against major USSR long-range bombers Il-4 and Yer-2.
