The TB-3 heavy bomber was the workhorse of the pre-war Soviet offensive bomber forces. Designed by the Tupolev Design Bureau between 1925-30 it has the distinction of being the first all-metal four-engined monoplane bomber. Between 1932 and 1938 a total of 819 machines were made in four military and two civil modifications.
In August 1937 the Soviet Government determined to offer the Chinese assistance against the Japanese. TB-3 were therefore delivered to the Chinese Air Force. On 20 May 1938 six TB-3 made a flight over Japan to drop leaflets.
