Hi,
Some fifteen years ago, I found in the Japanese aircraft magazine "Aereview" (October 1990, page 105) three small photos of a tailless jet "aircraft" with a rhomboidal wing. The Japanese caption mentions that the "aircraft" was tested by MiG in June 1954. On the last photo, the right elevon is seen starting to separate from the wing.
Since, all my researches to find more information on this "aircraft" remain vain. I even don't known if it's a full scale aircraft, a scale-model or a fake photo-montage. I have contacted "Aereview" but with no answer.
More information on the subject will be most welcome.
Thanks

This is an absolutely fake, a-la Tu-200 You can create any fake stuff and make your readers think as of another leak from The Evil Empire thinking that you never can be tested for truth.

Although that shape would really be nice looking for a new stealthy 6th Gen MiG...

Well, if this photo is a fake montage, is there any idea who created this fake image?
