Well, I'd like to know more about the airplane than I know from http://www.ctrl-c.liu.se/MISC/RAM/mt-1.html
and from L. Andersson's " Soviet Aircraft and Aviation 1917 - 1941 " one sentence information :
" The MT-1 torpedo - bomber variant remained at the project stage ".
First is important for me if the engines were in tandem like by the ROM-1 ?

Hi Boogey, If Hersham's original description is right, they can't be in tandem.... ;D

I have not found any more info either !

Cheers Bailey.

OK. We have to believe hesham's information. In my list the airplane remains as MT-1 2IIL B.T.
not 2tIIL, where 2 is a quantity of engines, II - biplane, L - flying boat ( łódź latająca ;D ),
then bomber, torpedo.
By the way I have a " foggy " information of the Yakovlev I-25 http://www.aviation.ru/Yak/.
