What are you looking for, exactly? Searching with Google, using Amtorg GST, turns up a few things, but I'm guessing you tried that already. The GST was a licence-built Russian version of the Consolidated PBY-1 with Tumanskii radial engines (it says!), but I'm sure there must have been other differences. Unfortunately, even Gunston's "Osprey Encyclopedia of Russian Aircraft 1875 - 1995" doesn't have very much information on this aircraft. He does mention 2 - 3 UBT machine guns as armament, and provision for up to 3 tonnes of underwing stores.

Welcome to the forum, by the way!

That looks like a ShKAS in the nose turret.

Thanks a lot...this photo is new to me...and yes, i  turned google upside down to find anything.
Also  i cannot seem to find  if  "civilian" GSTs were used  in  patrol duty, or  were they pressed into
naval  arsenal...
