Hmmm… Not Soviet. US project.
Caption says it's a project from 'Westinghouse'.
I can't tell you which one, because it is heavily (soviet style) restylized.

Rocket against rocket… It matches the versus theme. US projects vs Soviet projects and vice versa…

Is it a book on the space competition or rather on space defence? Protivo Kosmitcheskaya Oborona?

According to the text it is "Automatic interceptor-satellite from the Westinghouse company". Actually, it seems to be more an inspector one, since no warhead are mentioned.
