This is a plant named after one of the most prominent aircraft designers of the 20th century – Andrey Tupolev.
Way to the shop
The inner space of the shop is separated by partitions into three.
Amphibian motor sleigh AS-2 – offroad vehicle intended for transportation of cargos and passengers on ice, snow and water (max speed 90km/h).
Its creation began long ago by Tupolev himself. Back in 1924 such all-metal skiing motor sleigh АНТ-IV was made.
