Tupolev Tu-2S seen in Ballada o bombere.

The Tupolev Tu-2 was a soviet high speed bomber with a large internal bomb load. A first batch of 80 airframes was produced then put into frontline service but proved insufficiencies. The AM-37 engine was abandoned to concentrate efforts on the AM-38F (already used on the Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik) then on the Shvetsov ASh-82. This needed a new design which eventually gave the Tupolev Tu-2S. This variant was on frontline units at the end of 1944 and was one of the two standart medium bomber at the end of the World War 2 (alongside the Petlyakov Pe-2. The Tu-2 remained in service in the USSR until 1950, some of them being provided to nearly all the Warsaw Pact air forces and the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force.

A total of 2,257 Tupolev Tu-2 airframes were built.
