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

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.

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:

Hi! Tupolev SDB(СДБ).
http://xn--80aafy5bs.xn--p1ai/aviamuseum/aviatsiya/sssr/bombardirovshhiki-2/bombard-1920-e-1940-e-gody/skorostnoj-dnevnoj-bombardirovshhik-sdb/

http://www.airwar.ru/enc/bww2/sdb.html
"The experience of using the Tu-2 to solve various combat missions led the Air Force to the conclusion that it was necessary to create a new type of front-line vehicle - a high-speed day bomber ( SDB ).  High speeds and large flight heights were supposed to provide him with the possibility of applying daily bombing to enemy targets without escorting fighters.  The Tu-2 was considered the most suitable as the base vehicle for the creation of such an air force aircraft.  That is why the State Defense Committee adopted a decision on May 22, 1944, according to which the OKB was to build a DRB aircraft in duplicate with the time of their presentation for testing: the first copy - June 1, 1944, the second copy - October 10, 1944."

"The report noted that the SDB on its flight data far exceeds the same type of domestic and foreign aircraft, including Mosquito.  A number of defects were noted, the most serious of which was the insufficient survey of the navigator.  The aircraft was not recommended in the series, since the tests of the ╚68╩ (Tu-10) machine were already beginning, from which even higher characteristics were expected.

 SDB specification 
 Wing span : 18.80m , Length : 13.60m , Height : 4.55m 
 Wing area : 48.80m2 
 Weight : Empty 8280kg, Normal take-off   11850kg 
 engine's type   2 PD AM-39F,  Power, hp   2 x 1885 
 Maximum speed : at the ground   547km/h, on high   640km/h 
 Cruising speed : 612km/h 
 Practical range : 1530km 
 Maximum climb rate : 575 m / min
 Practical ceiling : 10100m 
 Crew :  3 
 Armament : two defensive 12.7-mm machine guns UBT and two 20-mm ShVAK cannons in the roots of the wings
 bomb load : 1000 kg, maximum - 3000 kg" 

Tu-1 is here.

Hi! Tupolev RDB(СДБ).
Cyrillic СДБ transcripts as Latin SDB, not RDB.
