I share with you some pictures of the impressive K-7 aircraft designed in the Soviet Union in the interwar period as heavy bomber but did not go into production. Visit the link below, see the collection of pictures and leave there your opinion or comment: Do you think the K-7 would succeed in his mission as a bomber?
When an aircraft gets big and bulky as in the pictures, adding an extra engine on the wing will also require extra fuel capacity. There must come a point where it just would not be economical to drop a bomb load, where the aircraft is heavier than its carrying capacity. Looking at some of those designs, low and slow appears to be the order of the day.
