Tupolev Tu-2S Front Line Bomber with M-82FN engines, later production and export series (NATO reporting name: Bat). The last stage of the Tu-2S's full-scale production began in 1949. The bomber's defensive armament was upgraded yet again. Production planes continued to be manufactured with machine guns in manual turrets, which by the late 40s seemed an obvious anachronism. In August 1948, a VEU-1 electric turret with a 20mm Berezin B-20 cannon was tested on series 55 aircraft, and from the spring of 1949 on it was used in mass production. The VEU-1 replaced the VUB-68 upper defensive turret. More powerful GSN-300 electric generators also began to be installed. In addition, a new fire suppression kit, an RSB-5 radio set and strong LFSV-45 retractable lights were added. Beginning with series 59, a Goodrich de-icing system was installed on the front edges of the wings, horizontal stabilizer, and fins. The upgraded equipment increased the aircraft's weight. Consequently, its speed and service ceiling decreased. In the spring of 1950, production of the Tu-2 was finally discontinued. The last series of planes were intended mainly for export, as the Soviet Air Force was switching to the Ilyushin Il-28 jet bomber. A total of 1,211 Tu-2s (including all variants) were produced during the post-war period of 1946 to 1950. Afterward, some previously built planes were updated. From 1948 on, TON-2 rear attack warning radars were mounted on some of the aircraft. The ASh-82FN engines were replaced on a mass scale with later series engines with improved reduction gear; radio altimeters and new radio sets were installed, as well. During the post-war period, as the industry supplied the Tu-2s, practically all units of the USSR Air Force were rearmed, replacing their Pe-2s and any lend-lease bombers. After the war, the Tu-2s were accepted for service with the Air Forces of Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, China, and North Korea. The Tu-2s of the Chinese Air Force took an active part in the Korean War of 1950-53. The Tu-2 aircraft were withdrawn from service with the USSR Air Force by the mid-50s. Virtually none of them were serving by 1954. It was in the flight schools that the Tu-2s continued to fly: some Tu-2s were still active in training units as late as the early 60s.
