[Development] Тu-14T: The Fastest Torpedo Bomber



The Tu-14T (T for “torpedonosyets”, EN: torpedo carrier) is a Soviet jet-powered torpedo bomber. The story of this vehicle’s creation is complex. It was a direct competitor to the famous IL-28 and will also be the first jet-powered torpedo bomber in our game. It will soon join the ranks of War Thunder’s naval aircraft.

The story of the aircraft’s creation is rather long, and it’s all because its competitors, the Tu-14 and the IL-28 became the first series-produced Soviet jet-powered bombers practically at the same time. Work on project 73 (later known as the Tu-14) at OKB Tupolev began in 1947. For its powerplant, the aircraft used three British turbojet Rolls-Royce engines, as using only two turbojet engines wouldn’t have provided the necessary flight characteristics desired. A little later, OKB Klimov developed the more powerful BK-1 engines on the basis of the British Rolls-Royce Nene and the Tu-14 no longer needed its third engine. The extra free space in the aircraft’s tail was taken up by a defensive turret. In 1951, the jet powered Tu-14 bomber with its new BK-1 engines successfully passed state tests and was accepted into service.





Nonetheless, the army preferred the Ilyushin IL-28 and accepted into service at roughly the same time. This meant that the administration of ground troops at the time, gave it preference over the Tupolev vehicle. Subsequent to this, in 1952 all Tu-14s, including those already produced, received the index T (“torpedonosyets”, EN: torpedo carrier) and continued their service, but this time exclusively as naval aircraft. Series production of the Tu-14T continued until February 1953. In total, around 147 vehicles were built.

About This Game

War Thunder is a free-to-play, cross-platform MMO combat game for Windows, Linux, Mac and PlayStation®4 dedicated to military vehicles used in and around World War II and the Korean War. In War Thunder, you can take part in major battles on land, in the air, and at sea, fighting with real players from all over the world in a continuously developing environment.

War Thunder already offers a highly detailed experience in military aviation and ground forces combat, giving players access to a Guinness World Record breaking number of aircraft, as well as an abundance of tanks and other combat vehicles - and the number is constantly rising.

You can feel the unmatched intensity of aerial dogfights in a fighter, the decisive power of commanding a heavy strategic bomber or the heat of battle in a ground attacker, delivering precision strikes against your enemies. Alternatively, you can join the spearhead of armoured vehicles, fighting for dominance over the battlefield on the ground: Man a heavy tank with impressive armour and firepower, use the maneuverability of a medium or light tank to your advantage, or support your team by screening the skies with your anti aircraft vehicle - the choice is yours!

In the future, the game will also allow players to ‘set sail’ by commanding a variety of warships in the fight over the control of the world’s oceans, giving the game a truly epic scale.

Master your vehicles through both upgrades and personal experience in an environment that is constantly expanding and rewarding the personal skill of the player. Organise your efforts in one of the countless player squadrons and become an ace pilot or tanker - or both! Our thriving and welcoming community of millions of players is also actively participating in the game’s ongoing development, offering custom content through War Thunder Live, such as skins, missions and even vehicles.
