A swing-wing, nose similar to the Backfire or Blackjack, external weapons under
the outer wings .... but the tail of a Backfire would look different, I think. And that
of the Blackjack, too ! Difficult, really difficult ???

OK, now a little simpler job. Do you know this plane?
I know what this is... This is an espresso machine. No, no wait. It's a snow cone maker.

Is it a water heater?
"This is a Soviet MIRV-Six, from an SS-22N launch vehicle. The warhead contains 14.5 kilos of enriched uranium, with a plutonium trigger. The nominal yield is 10 kilotons."

:D

Yeah, long life to Mike Oldfield, my parents were fans, they bought many vinyls in the late 70's and, as a consequence I grew up hearing with this music...

Dear Mr Gatial,

could you please give an idea about what is in that avicopress.ru for non Russian readers?. It's a bit frustrating for me when I see your breathtaking renderings. Most about designs which identity I can't imagine. I guess that somewhere in the web there are books where that artwork is included but I can't see it because I understand nothing :'(
Is there any project to translate the web to English?. Is anyone there working on English articles about that Soviet/Russian unknown designs?.

Thanks in advance

Antonio

Thomas, this is yet to be published, so no worries so far that you have missed something.
Antonio, If you have any questions, please write through http://avicopress.ru/obrat.php

Regarding AVICO-PRESS periodicals http://avicopress.ru/almanah.php - there were published several dozens of them (yes!),
each dedicated to specific project, with a tiny run of 500 copies. Even Konstantin Udalov, owner of AVICO-PRESS, doesn't have personal author's copy of each. I hope that orders and attention will bring backissues printing or making e-editions of them.

AVICO-PRESS Myasichev's Encyclopedia went through 3 editions, each time growing in volumes (last in 2005, has 10 volumes) and price at re-sellers, going up to 60-100 USD per volume, and now is hardly available.
