Actually the gun turret would be in the nose.

in the nose ..?

i could have sworn i saw drawings with a gun turret on the back at some time .. perhaps there several versions considered?

hmm .. that will take a trip to the morgue ... if i can find it again i will post it
The original was the M-17 Mystic that had one engine and did have a several varients. This was the Russian answer
to the U-2. The M-55 was built with 2 engines, can fly higher and stay up much longer. Developed into a research plane to study the ozone layer, NASA has at least one in its flock.
