Hi! Tupolev G-2. Number of converted from TB-3 to G-2 were unknown.

From Wikipedia,

Hi! Very clean ANT-41 torpedo bomber prototype.

Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_ANT-41
"The Tupolev ANT-41 was a prototype Soviet twin-engined torpedo-bomber of the 1930s. A single prototype was built, which was destroyed in a crash. No production followed, with the Ilyushin DB-3 serving as a torpedo bomber instead."

You can see the radiator which is located at inside of the engine nacelle.

Here is the ANT-46 (DI-8), a three-seat fighter developed alongside the SB. It was powered by 800-hp Gnome-Rhone K-14 radials and armed with two 76.2-mm recoiless cannon in the outer wings, two 20-mm ShVAK cannon in the wing roots, a 12.7-mm ShVAK machine gun in the nose, and two defensive 7.62-mm ShKAS machine guns in the rear fuselage. It was not a success.

It was not a success.

A minor correction:

The Di-8 variant with the two APK recoilless rifles only had a single ShKAS for the rest of its fixed forward firing armament. The Di-8 variant armed with 2x20mm ShVAK (or 5x20mm ShVAK) didn't carry any recoilless rifles. See this interesting post:
