Tupolev ANT-2


The ANT-2, completed in 1923, was a single-engined, three-seat monoplane, with cabin accommodation for two passengers. It had a thick multi-spar wing, triangular-section fuselage and thin corrugated-duralumin covering, called Kolchugalumin after the village where it was produced. The overall design was not unlike that of the Junkers K 16 of 1922, and indeed a close study of Junkers design and practice had been made at TsAGI since the first Junkers C.1 was captured during the civil war. Tupolev's ANT-2 represented an advance over the Junkers concept of the all-metal (corrugated aluminum alloy), cantilever low-wing monoplane. First flew on May 26, 1924.
