Sorry, people… Li-2
“The Lisunov Li-2, originally designated PS-84 (NATO reporting name: Cab), was a license-built version of the Douglas DC-3. (…). The project was directed by aeronautical engineer Boris Pavlovich Lisunov.”
“(…) over 1,200 engineering changes from the Douglas engineering drawings, and it was no small task for Vladimir Myasishchev* to change all dimensions from U.S. customary units** to metric units (…)”
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisunov_Li-2
*”After his return to Soviet Russia, Lisunov with Vladimir Myasischev, started the process of re-engineering the DC-3 with the objective of putting the DC-3 into production as a licenced derivative, some time later named Li-2.”

**Stupid units! 🙂
