The Tupolev ANT-35 all-metal light passenger transport prototype was based on the SB-2 bomber, and was flown initially on 20 August 1936. Of low-wing configuration with retractable main landing gear units, it was powered by two 597kW Gnome-Rhone 14K radials, later replaced by Soviet M-85s; its near circular-section fuselage accommodated a crew of two or three and 10 passengers. The improved ANT-35bis prototype was followed by nine series aircraft powered by 746kW M-62IR engines, and the type entered service with Aeroflot as the PS-35, delivered from 1937 to 1939. After June 1941 several were used for liaison and VIP transport, this 20.80m span aircraft having a maximum speed of 372km/h and a range of 1640km.
