DB-3TP, S.V.Ilyushin


Floatplane version of the DB-3T (Poplavkovyj, on the floats). Single torpedo was carried under the fuselage. To fit floats, the wing and fuselage were strengthened. Was rejected as obsolete, performance was disappointing.

It was the last attempt in the USSR to build military floatplane.
