Hi! ANT-69(Tu-8).
http://www.airwar.ru/enc/bomber/tu8.html
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_Tu-8

"The Tupolev Tu-8 was a long-range variant of the Soviet Tupolev Tu-2 medium bomber that first flew after the end of World War II. It was canceled when it proved to be unstable, structurally unsound and its generators were not strong enough to fully power its gun turrets. With the advent of jet-powered bombers, Soviet military planners decided that it simply was not worth devoting the necessary resources to fix its numerous problems."

Hi! "74"?

http://aviadejavu.ru/Site/Arts/Art5528.htm

Wikipedia says that...
Tu-73: three-engined development of the Tu-18, 1947
Tu-74 (also known as Tu-73R): proposed high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft developed from the Tu-73

And
https://books.google.co.jp/books?id=fOC7Ii5SgZUC&pg=PA102&lpg=PA102&dq=Tupolev+Tu-74&source=bl&ots=Eyz9r3JP4_&sig=mC1zUv8WE-eqm7uTVKN65KmHC00&hl=ja&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiJ-ODMnbfRAhXGiLwKHXlJBWwQ6AEITzAK#v=onepage&q=Tupolev%20Tu-74&f=false

So I can count five........

In page 111 of Yefim Gordon's amazing book "OKB TUPOLEV, A History of the Design Bureau and its Aircraft", I found almost same drawing compared with this drawing , which is named "76 mixed power bomber". This aircraft looks like "74".
