Among invited to celebrating there were Andrey Tupolev's relatives, leading experts of Open Society "Tupolev", the commander of distant aircraft Pavel Androsov, visitors from village Pustomazovo of the Tver region where the general designer on November, 10th, 1888 was born.

For 86 years in ОКБ it has been developed more than 300 projects of various types of flying machines, small courts and a snowmobile. They much them can be seen now as models in Open Society "Tupolev" museum. The museum exposition covers all history of the enterprise, since 1922 and about one today, and today's and tomorrow's directions of activity of the company are absolutely clearly underlined: planes strategic aircraft, civil aircraft and pilotless complexes. In museum foyer even the natural plane - pilotless scout Tu-143 was located. In a separate premise conditions of an office of the General designer are recreated

It's a crappy self-made pic of a Lockheed Unmanned Combat Armed Rotorcraft (UCAR), BTW

That seems to be a common enough factor in young Russian wimmins. But then they grow up and turn into this:

Looks like that "sonic-boom-as-an-anti-infantry-weapon" concept that popped up some time back.

Left Tu-22 M2-3 "45M"
the right version of Tu-160 with the deployment of one engine over another.
And unfortunately the question Paul's remains unanswered.

It was an attempt (before WW2) manufactured under license from the military version of Martin 156 under the symbol "OB"
At the forefront of the MTB-2 (4M-87A) ANT-44 (February 1939), from B. Rigmant "Under the symbol "ANT "and" Tu "

To Wurger's: Please specify on what twin-engines, are we talking about?:
silver is ANT-21 (MI-3), or perhaps ANT-45 (DIP2) 1936,
Green is probably ANT-40 (SB), or perhaps his gun-version , fighter ANT-46 (DI-8)
too bad visual resolving/quality

Hello Borovik.
Thank you very much.
I've just found the photo of the plane of the left side (TU 45)
I don't kown this version of Tu 160. If you are more details
i would be very interested
The central plane seems to be unmanned ?
What a pity I could not go and visit this museum !!
Thanks again. Bye

Perhaps this is one of derivative numerous options Tu-125 (early)

dear Borovik.
Thanks you. I learn two things ! but "Izdelie 54" and "tu 45"
the same plane ?
On the photo were we see "tu 64" "tu 4" and "tu 70" we could see
that the two floatplanes was not the same. I make mistake.
Thanks  ..Bye
