An unauthorized copy of the Boeing B-29, the Tupolev Tu-4, code named Bull by NATO, was reverse engineered by Tupolev on the orders of Stalin at the end of World War II. Tupolev used several B-29s that made emergancy landings in the Soviet Far East, near Vladivostok, as the blueprint for their carbon copy.
