just as a matter of curiosity (little historical interest, of course) an extract from INTERAVIA n.3 year 1952.
The title is:
Le bombardier "universel" de Staline
The section tells about a then little known project of Tupolev and starts with a declaration of US Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg of 17/02/1951, who said "...USSR is working on a bomber with performance similar to those of Consolidated Vultee B-36..."
Speculations about the airplane's layout were "...surely a large bomber with swept wing, swept high mounted stabilizers, six turboprops with contra-rotating propellers..."
According to the author, designation must have been "Tu-75" or "TuG-75, because also Gurevich is involved on the project" but probably "the father of this aircraft is Dr. Ing. Baade, who worked at Junkers Flugzeug und Motorenwerke".
"...the tubular fuselage is 51 mt long and the wing has flexible structure with a span of 68 mt, as the landing gear is bicycle type retracting in the fuselage".
"...engines are 6 BMW028-derived turboprops developing 7000 HP each and 30 RATO bottles for takeoff only..."
"...speed could reach 880+ km/h, range and payload is in the same class of B-36 and a crew of 22 men (!) is needed to ensure a good service during long flights..."
"...another prototype by Tupolev has made its first flight in September 1950, with 6 couples of DB-626 engines, developing 4000 HP each".
