In the 1920s Andrei Nikolayevich Tupolev created the experimental design bureau of aviation, which was looking out for the latest achievements in aeronautical science and engineering while creating their aircraft. The company has produced dozens of types of experimental and production aircraft, which took to the skies in the 20th century, as well as hundreds of original projects, which often were unparalleled among domestic and international aircraft. In many respects, they anticipated plenty of the basic directions of aviation development both in Russia and worldwide.
