Then, they must have collided with Amelia Earhart, because they were never seen again, although an intenive search was made. A dozen production models were made but it was itself replaced in service by the Pe-8.

A replacement for the TB-3, the DB-A showed superior performance. The prototype was overloaded with fuel and sent on a flight to Fairbanks, Alaska from Moscow. 14 hours later, they reported an engine out.
