My plan was to discuss about the DB-3, but if you want to put any other bombers in, you are free to post

It would make sense to stick to the DB-3 because that is the name of the topic and what it is tagged as. Not to mention that this is under USSR aircraft. Further aviation knowledge is never a bad thing, but I did not really see the post about the Junkers and beta gifts falling into this topic. Nothing stops that from being a topic of its own.
