What has it to do with the topic? These are Soviet artists' paintings, representing future what-ifs, mainly for Technica-Molodyozhi magazine.

By the way,I meant this aircraft only,but when I kept it as a picture,I discovered suddenly it save
all the drawings,I thought it was a hypothetical bomber.

Once more, what it has to do with the topic? It's not 'Western artist concept of Soviet aircraft' in any way. This is what-if art of fictional airliner from a Soviet magazine.

Better quality pictures to supplement  Reply #151 of this topic:

Spread from 1955' issue of Air Trails magazine (source http://www.airplanesandrockets.com/magazines/air-trails/air-progress-soviet-air-force-mar-1955-air-trails.htm), drawings by Douglas Rolfe.

Looking on the represented types, I wonder, how it's possible to draw them so inaccurate: Jak-23 didn't have any visible airscoop in front, MiG-15bis have two engines etc?

This has been just popular magazine of youngsters, as far as I understand. But did another, more professional books or magazines of this period, similarly incorrect?

Anyway, Doug Rolfe drawings have been a good example of style - both aircraft and cars. Just check http://www.airplanesandrockets.com/index.htm - "Vintage magazines" section

Found at whatifmodelers. I don't know if these were serious artist concepts of supersonic Soviet bombers or not. Originated from Avpro(?)

I believe they were Myasishchev M-20 studies, part of the evolution that lead to the Tu-160.
Not really sure why Avpro drew these, or what their aim was in general!

Quad-packaged jets looks quite unusual, aren't they?

Yes, this is one of M-20 variants.

Yes, this is one M-20 variants.

Curiously, Google search-by-image immediately suggest, that this is M-20.
There have been plenty of projects' versions: https://testpilot.ru/russia/myasishchev/m/20/m20_1.htm
