Thanks to you all for this very interesting thread which enables me to complete my list with some missing information.

Maveric, I'm doing an English-language translation of your list right now, but I need to know a few things:

1°) Why the separate additional list in two parts? I can find non-sequential designations here, but also duplicate designations.

2°) What does the concept of "arbeitsflugzeug" correspond to? "Working plane" doesn't mean much. Is it a commuter type, or a research type?

3°) Does the "U-Boat Pursuit" category signify an aircraft that was fitted to a U-boat as an escort?

Very interesting. Keep'em coming!

Some differences between your respective lists:

A.N.T. 11 = multi-purpose, or heavy torpedo bomber ?
A.N.T. 13 = one prototype, or none built ?
A.N.T. 21 = DI. 3 or MI. 3 ?
A.N.T. 26 = 1933 project or 1936 project ?
A.N.T. 28 = passenger or cargo ?
A.N.T. 29 = DIP. 1 or just DIP ?
A.N.T. 30 = multirole or reconnaissance ?

Hi AM.
Thanks for the great begun.
If you will allow a small correction dates:
ANT-11 (1929)
ANT-19 (1929)
ANT-26 (1932) / All work on the project was completed in July 1934.
Date you specified (1936) is a possible date of the final construction (in the Air Force plans to build on the experimental)
And at the ANT-17-18 (in our country's press), there was some confusion.
I think that the ultimate authority in this matter shall be the authority of Vladimir Rigmant (chief archivist Tupolev’s)
According to him ANT-17 is a biplane, and ANT-18 on the basis of the ANT-7.
In addition, I want your advice - given the specificity of our forum, perhaps it makes sense to pay more attention to projects like this you have done
with ANT-29 (2nd).
For example, in addition to passenger ANT-14 "Pravda" there were two versions of the bomber with four engines and five ..., but this is only my opinion to the same in the future it threatens too heavier task?  ???
In general, at your discretion
Best regards, Anatoly.

Great additions and corrections. I appreciate and I'm sure I'm not the only one... Of course having the alternative projects is great too!

Regarding A.N.T. 17: the fact it was a biplane project is compatible with it being a heavy attack aircraft, isn't it?
Regarding A.N.T. 18: the fact it was based on A.N.T. 7 is compatible with it being a Heavy attack aircraft, isn't it?
Regarding A.N.T. 29: isn't it logical that the unbuilt passenger version A.N.T. 27 should be #1 and the built DIP. 1 be #2?

What exact year was the A.N.T. 24 project conceived?

Hi Stargazer2006,

for your questions: 1) Two seperate list, one for sequential designations and one for non-sequential and duplicate designations. Its my own system.
2) Multirole aircraft for the agrucultural action.
3) U-Boot-Jagdflugzeug means search and destroy U-boat...
