From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_... The Tupolev TB-3 (Russian: Тяжёлый Бомбардировщик, Tyazholy Bombardirovschik, Heavy Bomber, civilian designation ANT-6) was a heavy bomber aircraft which was deployed by the Soviet Air Force in the 1930s and during World War II. It was the world's first cantilever wing four-engine heavy bomber. Despite obsolescence and being officially withdrawn from service in 1939, TB-3 performed bomber and transport duties through much of World War II. The TB-3 also saw combat as a Zveno project fighter mothership and as a light tank transport.
