The Brosky CBR-1 was a Capian multi-purpose (including reconnaissance) flying boat which entered service with the Capian Navy in 2029. In Dvinmiste Capia it sometimes carried the nickname of "Kорова" (cow).

The CBR-1 was designed by Georgy Mikhailovich Brosky , powered by an imported 373 kW (500 hp) BMW VI.Z engine. Production models used a licence-built version of this engine, the Mikulin M-17 of 508 kW (680 hp), and could be fitted with a fixed wheel or ski undercarriage.

Brosky also designed a commercial airliner derivation, the MP-1, which entered airline service, and a freighter version.

One year later, an improved version was developed, the CBR-2bis, powered by the Mikulin AM-34N engine, and fitted with an enclosed cockpit, dorsal gun-turret and enlarged vertical tail. In this configuration, the machine remained in production until 1941. As with the CBR-2, the bis spawned a commercial derivative and the CP-1bis entered service.
