Tupolev ANT-20

The Tupolev ANT-20 Maxim Gorky was a Soviet 

eight-engine aircraft, the largest of the 

1930s. Its wingspan was similar to that of a 

modern Boeing 747.

The ANT-20 was designed by Andrei Tupolev, 

using the all-metal airframe technologies 

devised by German engineer Hugo Junkers 

during the World War I years, and 

constructed between July 4, 1933 and April 

3, 1934. It was one of two aircraft of its 

kind built by the Soviets. The aircraft was 

named after Maxim Gorky and dedicated to the 

40th anniversary of his literary and public 

activities. The ANT-20 was the largest known 

aircraft to have used the Junkers design 

philosophy of corrugated sheet metal for 

many of the airframe's key components, 

especially the corrugated sheet metal 

skinning of the airframe.
It was intended for Stalinist propaganda 

purposes and was equipped with a powerful 

radio set called "Voice from the sky" 

("Голос с неба", Golos s neba), printing 

machinery, library, radiostations, 

photographic laboratory, and a film 

projector with sound for showing movies in 

flight. For the first time in aviation 

history, this aircraft was equipped with a 

ladder, which would fold itself and become a 

part of the floor.[1]
Also, for the first time in aviation 

history, the aircraft used not only direct 

current, but alternating current of 120 

volts, as well. The aircraft could be 

disassembled and transported by railroad if 

needed. The aircraft set several carrying 

capacity world records and is also the 

subject of a 1934 painting by Vasily 

Kuptsov, in the collection of the Russian 

Museum at St. Petersburg.
