Firstly this duralumin built 3 seat passenger plane was powered not by a Bristol "Jupiter", which probably had not been developed by then, but by a 100h.p. Bristol Lucifer. With a triangular cross section to the fuselage which reduced the need for wing struts and had the added benefit of reducing vortex drag the ANT-2 proved quite difficult to fly. This along with the lack of specialised knowledge in manufacturing all metal aeroplanes and for that matter the production of said alloys resulted in only a few being produced. One is still extent at th Central Airforce Museum at Monino.
