Hmm... there is also a five sided object on the tail... maybe a Russian version of the Supersonic Bidirectional Flying Wing?? ;)

Probably nuclear powered stealth VTOL bomber. Will resemble UFO until spotted, after that will make "KIROV REPORTING" sound...

Wish there is more about maturity of the N036/Sh-121 sets.  I wonder if they will use more modern module with larger transmit power.

. Switching to tiled module however seems unlikely as that may involve more work in terms of coolings and possibly need to compensate change of weight.

KIROVs are never reported.  They're invisible.
"DARPA Hard"  It ain't what it use to be.
