Tupolev ANT-22 / MK-1

The Tupolev ANT-22 or MK-1 with six 619kW M-34R engines was a long-range bomber reconnaissance flying-boat, its twin-hull design clearly inspired by the Italian Savoia-Marchetti S.55. Test flown for the first time on 8 August 1934, it established several weight-to-height world records in December 1936, but was abandoned soon afterwards. Armament comprised eight 7.7mm ShKAS machine-guns, one 20mm cannon and a bombload of up to 6000kg. The MK-1 spanned 51.00m and had a maximum speed of 223km/h.

Some bomb load for 1934 6000kg or 13,200lb, I don't think so!
