TsAGI ANT-51

During 1937-8, Sukhoi was primarily concerned with the design of a light reconnaissance-bomber intended to succeed the R-10, this being the ANT-51 two-seat mid-wing monoplane which, powered by an M-62 radial, flew in 1938. During the following year, Sukhoi established his own design bureau, and began the redesign of the ANT-51 with an M-88B engine, a low wing and an increased offensive load, this emerging as the BB-1, entering series production in 1940, and being redesignated Su-2 in 1941.
