Tu-154-200: Projected version with two Samara NK-93 turbofans.

Tu-154M2: Modernised, twin-engined version; Perm/Soloviev PS-90A turbofans, consuming 62 per cent as much fuel per passenger as Tu-154M. Intended originally to fly 1995, but apparently abandoned. Life 20,000 hours or 15,000 cycles.

Tu-154 Retrofit: In 1998, Rybinsk Motors was promoting the CFM56 turbofan as a re-engine option.

Anybody has drawings of that twin engined variants?

Thanks in advance.

If you read Yefim Gordon's book about the Tupolev Design Bureau, you'll find a drawing of a twin-engine version of the Tu-156 hydrogen-powered derivative of the Tu-154, the Tu-156M2. It is possible that the lack of funds following the USSR's collapse rendered the Tu-154M2 a paper project only.
