This artist's impression was published in "X Planes - Secret Planes and Secret Missions" by Oliver and Ryan (ISBN 0004724615). It seems to be a Myasishchev transport (maybe one of the many different M-12 layouts?). But why is it equipped with VG AND a foldable rotor? Can anybody confirm the designation M-12? I'm looking for a three-view drawing and further artist's impressions. When was it designed?

This is another what-if fantasy from AVPRO guys that illustrated most of this book with their concepts. No one of Myasishchev M-12 iterations to my knowledge was ever close to this weird stuff. Why it has WG wing - to fly M=2 with this goddam blunt nose, yeah?

Konstantin, thanks for confirmation of the extraordinary stowed rotor layout of the M-12 (and thanks to flateric for your persistently asking at Konstantin). :)
