The first official designation of the "68" aircraft was Tu-4, changed into Tu-10 when Tu-4 index was fixed on B-29 copy (which itself was previously designated as B-4 or Aircraft "R" - without any "ANT" number).

The official designation of "70" was initially Tu-12, changed in 1948 into Tu-70 (Tupolev factory designation was confirmed as official).

The versions of "71" project with radial engines (ASh-82M, M-93) obtained official designation Tu-14; but the version with M-45 liquid-cooled engines was designated Tu-16 (Tu-16 2M-45).

Beside the "72" project with twin-fin empennage (Tu-24 2ASh-2TK), a version with V-tail (!) was projected. This version was designated as Tu-26 2ASh-2TK.

The high-altitude recon version of Tu-2, built in little series in 1947, was officially designated as Tu-6. These aircrafts had elongated outer wings like Tu-2D versions (22.06 m wingspan, instead of 18.86 m on standard Tu-2). It seems that this Tu-6 had no special "ANT" number.

Before the jet Tu-78 (Tu-16 2Nene-1 + Derwent-5) mentioned here, another "78" project existed - it was a photo recon version of Tu-8 ("69"). Its official designation was Tu-28 2ASh-82FN. It was only a preliminary design projected during 1947. (Source: V. Rigmant, AiK 9-1998).

The "84" photo recon project wasn't based on the "73": initially it was designed as "74" (Tu-22) derivative, with VK-2 turboprop engines instead of ASh-84TK radials, and with RD-45 jet engine replaced by more powerful VK-1. But, during the evolution, it turned into completely new aircraft. The jet engine was removed, and "84" became pure turboprop. Here is a 3-view; note the V-tail.

Technical data for Tupolev "84" (projected):
Wing span - 34.0 m
Length - 25.5 m
Wing area - 108 m2
Powerplant - 2x Klimov VK-2 turboprop engines, 4200 / 4800 hp each
Maximum speed - 725 km/h (at 6000 m altitude)
Service ceiling - 13 100 m
Flight range - 5600 to 5800 km
Crew - 5
Weapon - 8x 23-mm NR-23 cannons

Hi,

I found the drawing below that seems related to Tupolev works in the late 20s, early 30s,
Perhaps a project leading to the TB-3?

Hi Philippe

This project P. Grokhovskiy Г-ЛК (Летающее Крыло) G-LK (flying wing) on the basis of TB-3 by A.Tupolev.
The project is inspired by the works of the bomber K. Kalinin, namely K-12 "Firebird" that some time in KB-29 Grokhovskiy and Kalinin with his family at that time lived at the villa Grokhovskiy and actually had some influence in the selection scheme flying wing.
  In addition Kalinin K-12 there was a four-engine long-range bomber K-17 performed well under the scheme of a flying wing.
The fate of both designers tragic: both were repression, Kalinin was shot, Grokhovsky died in the camps.
