"For the propulsion system of the aircraft "135" the following types of engines were considered:
NK-6 (maximum take-off thrust - 23,000- 23,500 kg, specific fuel consumption on the cruising supersonic jet - 1.5-1.7 kg/kg.h);
NK-6B 22,480 kgs; 1.5-1.75 kg/kg);
?NK-6B 118700 kgs; 1.7-1.9 kg/kg.h);
?NK-6C 122500 kgs; 1.6-1.7 kg/kg;
NK-10 24,000 kgs; 1.4-1.6 kg/kg.h);
P15B-300 15,000 kgs; 1.8 kg/kg/kgch);
P23-300 21,000 kgs; 1.6-1.75 kg/kgs-h);
VD-19R 13,500 kgs; 2.0-2.5 kg/kg-h);
P17-117 17,000 kgs; 1.7-1.1.8 kg /kgs-h).
The number of engines, depending on the parameters of the particular engine and the aircraft project, varied from four to six."

Option number 1
Aircraft "135" with the central location of engines
This variant almost completely repeats the scheme of the American aircraft B-70.
The "duck" scheme, triangular wing with arrow-shaped at the front edge - 65 degrees, console wing endings, deflected in flight, two-keel vertical plumage, four NK-6 engines (maximum take-off thrust of each 23,000 kgs) in the general package in the tail part of the aircraft.
Air intakes are multi-mode separate with a vertical wedge. The armament in the variant of the missile carrier is one X-22 missile.
Preliminary data on this project were as follows:
Wingspan : 28.00m, Fuselage length : 46.80m, Height of the plane in the parking lot : 10.00m, wing area : 380sq.m
take-off weight : 190,000kg, cruising speed : 2500km/h, practical range at 2500 km/h : 7950km.
flight altitude over the target : 22500m

Hmm, is it okay to post pirated content? As far as I know, the book "Стратегический бомбардировщик-ракетоносец Ту-160" was not available for free access? Correct if I'm wrong?

Hi!
Aircraft "135" with four NK-6 engines under the wing and without horizontal tail stabilizer.
The overall layout resembles American A-12. The NK-6 engines stood in pairs in two nacelles.
The fuselage sweep back angle is 80 degrees and the wing sweep back angle are 70 degrees.
The armament in the variant of the missile carrier is one X-52 missile.
Preliminary data on this project were as follows
Wingspan : 27.00m, Fuselage length : 54.60m, Height of the plane in the parking lot : 10.50m,
Wing area : 490sq.m, take-off weight : 190,000kg, cruising speed : 2500km/h
practical range at 2500 km/h : 7900km, flight altitude over the target : 23500m,
length of takeoff : 2300m

I think length of this Tu-135 version 54.6 m is wrong. On attached picture yellow square has size 5x5 meters. Length of glazes cockpit 4 meters? No

There are two sources on missile under this Tu-135 version - X-22 and X-52 (Kh-52). Size of first one is near to 11 m, second one 6-7 m. On attached picture is drawing of one version of M-56 with length near 44 m with X-22 missiles. When we suppose under Tu-135 is the same missile then really size of Tu-135 could be 54 m. But when we compare cockpits on both planes then it is clear that cockpit for Tu-135 is extremely huge for plane of that size. My tip for Tu-135 length is 33-37 meters
Flateric, can you help us?

There's no need to guess, original Tupolev drawings are in the Rigmant Tu-160 book published by Polygon (the pics 1,2,3.jpg posted by Blackkite above are from there). This confirms the length is 54.6m for this version.

I've removed the PDF copy of this recent book posted by blackkite above. DO NOT post entire books here and especially don't upload to forum. This is a serious rules infraction and has resulted in a 7 day ban.

And what from book is picture "Tupolev 135"? Under the scheme of the Tu-135 "Flying wing form" is its length of 25-29 meters?

Hi!
I estimated Tu-135 flying wing version dimension based on NK-6 engine inner exhaust nozzle size.
