Hi There;

I was just wondering if anyone on this forum have images of a Soviet Tupolev Tu-16 with an Tsybin RS model fitted underneath on its belly centerline? The image was caught from a Soviet cine film simply called "The heat barrier?" I think it was featured in a 1960s-era magazine called "Warbirds." In advance, thanks.

an amendment to the above, it should read Tsybin "Ts-1" as featured in the Soviet cine film "Heat Barrier" or "Heat Thicket" using the Tu-16 as the launch aircraft in the late 1950s.

1961 movie name was Barrier of Uncertainty (director Nikita Kurekhin)
Soviet X-15 fantasy hypersonic counterpart was dubbed Tzyclon-1 (Cyclon), and has nothing to deal with reality and Tzybin, that can easily be seen at photo still

Sign you see under canopy is Russian letter Ц (Tz-1) (Tzyclon-1)
