Tupolev ANT-14 Pravda

tup-ant-14


Andrei Nikolaevich Tupolev designed the ANT-14, a five-engined airliner powered by Soviet-built 358kW Bristol Jupiter radial engines: this spanned 40 m (132 ft) and could carry 42 people over 1200 km (745 miles), sufficient to fly in stages from Moscow to Vladivostock.

The one-off ANT-14 Pravda, served as flagship of the propaganda squadron. The ANT-14 was modestly successful, serv-ing on the Moscow-Berlin route and on scientific explorations in Siberia and the Arctic.

Pravda carried over 40,000 passengers before being grounded in 1941.
