Two torpedo carrying variants of the Tu-2 were built. First one was series Tu-2S converted into low altitude torpedo-carrier. It could be armed with one or two 45-36-AN 966kg torpedoes under the wing roots. Aircraft was flown in February-March 1945 as Tu-2T.
Long range torpedo carrier '62T' was developed from 5-seater '62'. It had an extended range (extra fuel tank in the bomb bay) and could carry same two torpedoes as Tu-2T or three lighter 800kg torpedoes.
Built in series, served with VMF.
