==Thiết kế và phát triển==
The Tu-2 was tailored to meet a requirement for a high speed bomber or dive-bomber, with a large internal bombload, and speed similar to that of a single seat fighter. Designed to challenge the [[Ju 88]], the Tu-2 proved comparable, and was produced in [[torpedo]], [[interceptor]], and [[reconnaissance]] versions.
Designed as "[[Samolyet]] ( aircraft) 103", development took place under prison conditions. The first prototype was completed at factory N156, and made its first test flight [[29 January]] [], piloted by Mikhail Nukhtinov. The AM-37 engine was abandoned to concentrate efforts on the AM-38F for Il-2. So Tupolev had to redesign aircraft for an available engine. Modifications of this bomber took ANT-58 through ANT-69 designation slots. A total of 2257 Tu- 2s were built.
