History

The MBR-2 was a Soviet multi-purpose (including reconnaissance) flying boat. It entered service in the Soviet Navy in 1935 and 1365 were built, declined in 6 versions. Some were used by foreign countries, including Finland and North Korea. In the Soviet Union, it sometimes carried the nickname of "Kорова" (cow) and "Амбар" (barn). After the Second World war, it mainly used for watching overfishing areas.

It was extensively used during the Soviet-Finnish winter war between 1939 and 1940, and against Germany from June 1941. It demonstrates reliability and robustness throughout these conflicts. Several MBR-2s return safely to missions after undergoing enemy fire. The MBR-2 was able to be equipped with wheels or skis, thus adapting to many areas of operation. Faced with the shortage of aircraft in flight, its armament was adopted in June 1941 by the Soviet authorities to carry out night bombardments, then diurnal. By the way, it's very slow speed made it very useful for submarine hunt.

Our in-game MBR-2 is the MBR-2bis (also know as MBR-2AM-34). It was developed in 1935 as an improved version, powered by the Mikulin AM-34N engine, and fitted with an enclosed cockpit, a dorsal gun-turret and enlarged vertical tail. The machine remained in production until 1941 with this configuration.
