Can someone translate the chart? I think it contains information on the performance and dimensions of this aircraft.
Also, the translation of the webpage mentions a Kh-45 missile and says it is an anti-ship missile. However, other sources say it was an armament for the Sukhoi T-4. It was also proposed for the Tu-160 bomber but the Kh-55 was selected instead, so perhaps it was an air to ground cruise missile?

Yes, he had - the early version of M-56 project: https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/myasishchev-m-56.10846/
But that was 210-ton strategic bomber with 10 000 km range, while Yak-35 was more than twice lighter (102 tons MTW) and its range was only 6000 km, which put it rather into Tu-22/22M category. By Soviet classification it is long-range bomber, not strategic one.
