From 1932 to 1939 a total of 818 TB-3s of all variants were produced. Others were built for civil use under the designation G-1 and G-2.

-------------------------------------

In January 1945 German officials from the Ministry of Armaments assessed what might have been produced in 1944 without the bombing. They estimated that German industry turned out 35% fewer tanks, 31% fewer aircraft and 42% fewer lorries than would have been possible otherwise.All the officials interviewed (after the war) stated that bombing was the factor responsible for the declining gains from rationalisation and for the eventual collapse of the economic structure after January 1945

They were used mainly in Winter War and early days of Contination war, also first the first few months of Operation Barbarossa.

I want to see the paratroop and freighter varients of the TB-3, and do missions dropping supplies from TB3s and Ju52s.
