Fascinating! This is the first I've heard of this design. Do you have any background on it?

Just tech specs - no project story, except that this was co-operative Korchagin/Beriev mid-70th program...not sure for the timeframe stated as from the two published articles on subject you can't understand if this program 'was' or it 'is' ...nevertheless IMHO it has no future anyway. Just description of modular construction that has common airframe to serve for various aircraft carrier purposes - from attack to AEW. Must look i my Beriev books also.

Wingspan 16.0 m
Lenght 15.70 m
Height 5.20 m
Wing area 49.50 sq.m
Emty weight 14 500 kg
Take-off weight 22 000 kg
Fuel 5 000  kg
Two 4 500 kg class turbojets
Max speed 1070 km/h
Range 2 520  km
Flight time max  7  h
Climb rate 1320 m/min
Crew 2
Weapon load: from 2 500 kg to 5 500 kg

Looks very much like a Soviet equivalent of the Lockheed S-3 Viking family.

Nice find.

That thing sorta reminds me of the Beriev P-42 design (a real S-3 clone), except the engines aren't under the wings.

As stated above, project was co-operative Korchagin/Beriev effort so nothing strange in the fact they look alike each other and both alike S-3 Viking as well:)))

Can anyone give me more info on this mysterious Russian design?

Here is an enlargement of the showing the turboprop ASW(?) aircraft and the original source image of the carrier Baku.

Could it be an ASW version of the Yak-44 AEW? There's a second one with its wings folded just aft of the island.

It's again Yak-44 in one of two alternative iterations offered by OKB to Navy in 1978, with Fakel AEW radar antennes in fuselage (nose and tail boom) alike, say, Nimrod AEW.3 It alsso should have 4 vertical lift engines for assisted take-off and landing. But plane would be too heavy with all that stuff and Fakel radar progress was hard (it was cancelled in favor of E-700 radar) so that iteration died in october 1984.

    Could it be some Antonov proposal? ISTR reading some years back "somewhere" about an Antonov a/c, NOT Madcap, but an An-26 or similar derived a/c in competition with the Yak-44

I have heard only about An-71K Madcap as contender. Antonov's invested bunch of time and effort in that weird stuff. But if you have read it - who knows.

There are a couple of paragraphs devoted to a shipborne variant of the An-71 in Gordon & Komissarov's 'Soviet/Russian AWACS Aircraft' - Vol 23 in the 'Red Star' series.

The project received the tentative designation An-75. The An-71's engine arrangement hampered any wing-fold procedure. If they moved the engines underwing (as they have now done with the An-74TK-300) it would have freed up space for wingfold - and a new position for a rotodome - but it would have been, effectively, a new design.

Work persisted on an An-71 navalistaion project, but its thrust/weight ratio was insufficient to permit 'ski jump' takeoffs.

The project was dropped in favour of Yakovlev's 'clean sheet of paper' Yak-44 Project.

There was also a separate, all-new design labeled An-75, but, according to Red Star, no details are available.

This is either early P-42 variant or first attempt to picture it in Russian aviation press.

Here I just found some more about the P-42 !!
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
...
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
