Tu-123 pictures.

https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A2%D1%83-123
"The new aircraft was designated I123K (TU-123) or the DBR-1 (remote unmanned Scout). Factory tests were completed in September 1961 a year, and Government — in December 1963 onwards. By the Decree of the USSR Council of Ministers N 444-178 from long-range unmanned System May 23, 1964 photo and ELINT DBR-1 Hawk was adopted by the AIR FORCE. Series production was carried out at the plant in Voronezh, no. 64, from 1964 to 1972, a total of 52 products were manufactured.
The system was in service with the AIR FORCE reconnaissance units stationed in western border military districts, until the year 1979. Theoretically, intelligence officers can perform tasks across Central and Western Europe, although real flying DRONES over the territory has not been fulfilled. However, launches these UAVS during the exercises have repeatedly confirmed high reliability and the claimed performance characteristics. But after adopting the MiG-25R reconnaissance complexes DBR-1 gradually began to take off."
