Interestingly, that aircraft is somewhat reminiscent of the Soviet Tu-22 Blinder supersonic (Mach 1.42) jet bomber (which might also have RG potential, see: http://www.google.com/search?source...1.0.XhLCI6VN3Nc ). I wonder if Tupolev is involved in this aircraft project in any capacity (they designed a supersonic business jet a few years ago)?
