Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Describe the offensive armament of the aircraft, if any. Describe how effective the cannons and machine guns are in a battle, and also what belts or drums are better to use. If there is no offensive weaponry, delete this subsection.

Suspended armament

Describe the aircraft's suspended armament: additional cannons under the wings, bombs, rockets and torpedoes. This section is especially important for bombers and attackers. If there is no suspended weaponry remove this subsection.

Defensive armament

Defensive armament with turret machine guns or cannons, crewed by gunners. Examine the number of gunners and what belts or drums are better to use. If defensive weaponry is not available, remove this subsection.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

In-game description

Tupolev Tu-2S Front Line Bomber with M-82FN engines, main post-war series (NATO reporting name: Bat).

After World War II combat operations had ceased, production of the Tu-2S continued. During peace time, the military could afford to demand that those defects which they had had to put up with during the war be eliminated. The in-flight view of the pilot and the navigator was still considered unsatisfactory. Although the plane's fire power was considerable, the bomber's defense capability was reduced due to the small angle of fire for its turrets. The bomb release system was unreliable. These and other defects were progressively eliminated on the post-war Tu-2S from one production series to another.

Beginning with series 41, a new lower hatch, opening outward, was installed for the radio operator/gunner, and in series 42, the amount of protective armor on the back of the pilot's chair and on the hatches over the cannons in the wings was increased. A second landing headlight was added to all production planes. Beginning with series 44, the gunner's in-flight view was improved when three small round blisters on each side were replaced with one large one. Removal of the wooden structural parts from the airframe began; specifically, the tail cone was once again constructed of metal. The designers widened the pilot and the navigator's cockpit canopy and equipped it with convex side blisters. Extendable footrests were added, facilitating access to the pilot's and navigator's stations.

One important novelty was the replacement of the defensive weapons with models featuring an increased sighting angle. The BUSh-1 blister mount was replaced with the VUS-1, the LU-UBT hatch mount with the LU-68, and the VUB-2M upper defensive turret with the VUB-68.

Series 51 featured new main landing gear wheels with an increased carrying capacity but a smaller size. At the same time, a new tail wheel with a reinforced fork was implemented. The bay of the new tail skid had to be expanded so that the modified wheel could be retracted into the fuselage. A grooved strip was laid along the starboard wing of the plane so that the crew's footing would not slip on the wing's smooth metal surface. In addition, a new RSI-6 command radio set was installed in the pilot's cockpit.

Beginning in series 52, the designers abandoned the wooden wing tips, the last leftover from the wartime economy. Now every Tu-2S was produced with a completely metal airframe. More sophisticated equipment called for increased power from the aircraft's electrical system, so two more powerful GSK-1500 generators were installed.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
