Image said to be originated from Tupolev OKB. Text tells of late 90s study of heavy (several tons in the case) recce/strike UCAV. No more details. Meteorit missile heritage is obvious. Original source is here http://nvo.ng.ru/armament/2008-05-23/8_aero.html?insidedoc

Yefim Gordon's book Unflown Wings mentions the Tu-500 on pages 97-98, including a 3-view drawing and some technical details. The launch environment and top speed are unknown.
