A Myasishchev document published in 2012 and entitled Design a range of light aircraft based on the LMS M-101T presents a range of aircraft projects more or less directly derived from the M-101T Gzhel light multipurpose aircraft:
- The M-101TM a modernized, operational development version of the basic M-101T. Among new features would be wingtip fuel tanks, a new engine type (the G.E. H-80), a flush engine intake, and a heating system recycling exhaust gases. Development and testing of the new version would take one year.
- The M-103 multi-purpose aircraft, a mixed cargo/passengers derivative.
- The M-107 trainer, for the initial and basic training of flight personnel. This would be in the same league with the Pilatus PC-9 (Beech T-6), among others.
- The M-201GP light multipurpose aircraft, a lengthened, twin-engine derivative of the M-101 for either cargo or passengers. The pressurized passenger cabin would allow altitudes of up to 9 km, resulting in fuel economy, avoiding turbulence and bad weather, and staying clear from mountainous terrain. It would be powered by two G.E. H-80 engines.
