I've seen it before  Wink

One of the weird and wonderful large russian designs from between the wars, they did like em big.

Here is an article with a real photo, and if you read the article you will note it wasn't a good idea to fail with Stalin around!!!!

And here is the largest plane in the world in 1934, the famous Maxim Gorky:

A little more sucessful this one, I belive that this was the first aircraft to be used to drop paratroops as well.

They would exit the aircraft at the top and literally slide down the wing and off ito space  Shocked

I don't know the authenticity of the third photo either.
I would think those cannons would actually rip apart that plane, Although I'm not an engineer.

I think those ones are CGI, if you look at the article I posted you can see although large the plane isn't as big as in the ones posted by Data.
