      I'm thinking I've seen that boat as 485 as well. I'll have to try to look.


WOW! That flying boat is a new one to me! I have always been impressed by the evolutionary development that Tupolev did from the Tu-4 to the Tu-95.

This is the 485, which I have. They worked since Summer of 1948, then stopped it and began the 489 development. There were turboprop/jet versions, 4 or 6 engines,  I have more specifications and will post them or send, if needed.

The Tu-504 flying boat bomber is principally very similar to the Myasischtschew 3M-M,
the fkying boat derivative of the Bison. And for both I think, they would have had no
chance to be competitive as a combat aircraft !

Dear Jemiba, with all my poor aerospace education I hardly can say that -504 and 3M-M has many common in their design.

"I hardly can say that -504 and 3M-M has many common in their design."

You're right of course, they have different powerplants and apart from several bolts
and nuts you probabably wouldn't have found identical components, but ...
both were derivatives from landbased aircraft, designed in the same way, by deepening
the fuselage in quite an extreme way, as both basic aircraft had very slim fuselages,
and fitting them with a convenional flying boat planing bottom. There were few landbased
variants of flyingboats planned (e.g. of the Saro Princess), but for the other way round,
there are even fewer examples, The only other I can remember, was the Convair design
for a flying boat derivative of the Comet .But that was an aerodynamically surprisingly
clean design, something I really cannot say of the Tu-504 and the 3M-M.
But ok, to compare a heavy prop bomber and a jet bomber may have meant over stretching
ones phantasy, although both were designed as combat aircraft, with the same simple and
probably unrealistic idea in mind.

Hi,

In the Jets magazine they said that the Tupolev Tu-18 was developed
from Tu-72,can anyone confirm this Info ?.
 
   Dear Hesham. You should compare yourself .(I apologize for long delay)

Hi,

Also I read that the Tupolev Tu-76 = Tu-32,that means there was a Tu-30
design,does anyone know it ?.

The Tu-72 looks like it was heavely influenced by the B-25 Mitchell.In some views,it looks just like a jet powered B-25.Russia did by large numbers of them,so modification of the basic design would have been a good way to get a new aircraft and possibly improve on the design itself.They did the same with the B-29 in the form of the basic Tu-4 Bull ,which was identical, then the modified and improved Tu-85 Barge,and ultimently the Tu-95 Bear.

The Tu-30 (4 x Nene turbojet engine) design looks very much like the American North American B-45 Tornado

Looks like that "sonic-boom-as-an-anti-infantry-weapon" concept that popped up some time back.

been looking for this one for a while, can't seem to find it again though.

From Aerokosmicheskoye Obozreniye N°2, 2008:
  • Aircraft "83" inboard profile.
Aircraft "83" differed from Aircraft "82" by having an increased fuselage length (19.9 m). The crew now included a gunner/radio operator, who was located behind the pilot. Radio-controlled PSBN bombs could now be replaced by REM-S precision targeting hardware. The AFA-BA/40 camera was replaced by an AFA-33/75. The shape and size of the canopy pilot were changed, and so was the breakdown of the fuselage fuel tanks. Construction of Aircraft "83" started at Factory #156, but in 1949 all work stopped. Work on Aircraft "82" (the first practical step towards the creation of the Tu-16) and Aircraft "83" ended in 1950 when the "82" prototype aircraft was mothballed and the Soviet Air Force launched the production of the Il-28 straight-wing front-line bomber.

From Aerokosmicheskoye Obozreniye N°2, 2008:
  • Aircraft "486" inboard profile
  • Aircraft "486" model
The basis of the wing arrangement on Aircraft "486" that of Aircraft "82", but with its length increased by 8.15 m. Vertical tail was prolonged by a dorsal fin. The size of the empennage was increased in accordance with the increase in the wing area and extension and the stability requirements for swept wings.

The fuselage was borrowed from the Aircraft "73", but was subjected to alteration of the nose landing gear compartment due to the increased height of the rack and the shift from single to twin wheels. The use of the swept wing also required to move the upper turret 6 m forward, ahead of the pressurized cabin.  fuel A tank with capacity for 2350 kg of fuel was located high above the bomb bay.

Another fuselage tank with capacity for 2310 kg of fuel, was also placed to the rear, which forced to shift the rear fuselage pressurized cockpit by about 1 m. Due to the increased weight of the aircraft (up to 32 tons) the landing gear was strengthened by using new wheels.

Work on the Aircraft "486" ended at the initial design stage, serving as a basis for the design of the Aircraft "86" bomber in January 1949.
