Hola Fabián,

I have never seen proliferation of Flying Wing designs on Soviet Union, two examples of it are:

Chetverikov RK-1 from 1948

Moskalyov DSB-LK from 1957

but even these are not pure Flying Wing in the sense of Northop, Horten or Handey-Page.

Saludos cordiales,

Antonio

Fabián,

Whilst not necessarily bombers, I do know that the Russians have considered flying wings for a number of projects such as:

Tupolev Tu-404 ultra-high capacity plane - well probably more of a BWB design, but close enough:

Myasishchev`s M-67 variants:

BVS-LK `flying wing` high altitude project:

LK-M:

`Kreiser` (Cruiser) LK:

LK-M `Bumerang` high altitude spy plane:

and of course, who could forget the Sukhoi T-4MS bomber:

Deino - That is one of myriad (OK, dozens for now) TzAGI (or SibNII) flying-wing/bwb studies not particulary related to any specific design bureaus, both research centers itself very productive for various research studies. Guys just need to show something on their stands, so often you just can't say if it was taken from garbadge room, dusted off and went to LeBourget, or taken right from the wind tunnel.
Here if you see BWB, nevertheless, we sure talking either of TzAGI studies, or - of course - Tupolev OKB.
