Welcome to another addition of Warplane Wednesday, where I bring attention to rare, unique, or just left out aircraft not featured in the game currently, and give it the spotlight for all to talk about and enjoy.

 

This week is a Soviet Heavy bomber with a unique first of its kind wing, its the TB-3!


 

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 It was the world's first cantilever wing four-engine heavy bomber.[2] Despite obsolescence and being officially withdrawn from service in 1939, the TB-3 performed bomber and transport duties throughout much of World War II. The TB-3 also saw combat as a Zveno project fighter mothership and as a light tank transport.

Already in WT at a guess. I do like the idea of meet my little I-16 friends though.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

It's one of the rarest planes in the game. It's like the Type 59 of Warthunder.

​I meant its not in World of Warplanes yet. Until the Beta for the new game mode with bombers comes out, its currently only in War Thunder

Meh, I got one and hardly fly it. Nothing more than a big, slow, green target in the sky.
