It's a good HOAX Render!

theoretically it would be a Myasishchev M-55 ... but the plane does not exist. :-[

https://www.renderosity.com/mod/gallery/index.php?image_id=1986225

this is the only thing I found that is not in Cyrillic:

Some hints of what is there - M-25, project of low altitude infantry killer - via shock wave, while flying supersonic 30-50 meters above the enemy troops.
Project was cancelled in 1973 after it became clear that Chinese government understood that attempts to disturb big bear can be dangerous, and finally declassified this year.  :P

I had to search for this rare one at the Secret Projects Aircraft forum - https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,2853.0.html
for all things weird and wonderful  :D

Quote
from the aircraft description....

" Its moveable ramp was able generate killing sonic boom!

 o_O WOW! I never thoght about that. They are always thinking of new ways to kill the enemy.
Amazing and crazy idea , but it might just work.
The picture posted looks like a pretty cool design.

Nice work locopiston :)

Project Myasishchev M-25 / experimental Russian military aircraft that proved unsuccessful after extensive trials (as is the fate of roughly half concepts for advanced military aircraft). A real 1970s project of supersonic ground attack fighter using destructive force of sonic boom as well as conventional weapons. However this project never got to mockup stage, let alone flying prototype.

Your turn loco.  :)

Greetings DHumprey! ;D
In fact, I had it in a folder with other beautiful aircraft renders that never existed.  :-[
But I have found great resistance in this thread for those things, the friend Mike is like crazy in the absence of reality. Unless it's an F-35  :P
The most unreal that was well received is the physical scale model. ;)

Try this star wars empire ship now!

I think this one is the tail gunner position of the Ju-288.  :)



The Junkers Ju 288, originally known within the Junkers firm as the EF 074, was a German bomber project designed during World War II, which only ever flew in prototype form. The first of an eventual 22 development aircraft flew on 29 November 1940.

Although the 288 never even reached production status, let alone official operational service, the aircraft did see limited combat duty. In 1944, following the cancellation of the 288 program, the surviving A and C series prototypes were hurriedly fitted with defensive armament and equipment and deployed as reconnaissance bombers on the Western Front.

Very few missions were flown, owing to the scarcity of aviation fuel and spare parts, and the unresolved problems with the aircraft's powerplant and undercarriage. It is believed that the 288's were attached to the same unit operating the small number of Ju 388 reconnaissance planes that saw service.

Right again DHumprey!

It's from a ju-288.
I think with the glasses of the cockpits remaining, they made this beautiful fire car!


You turn again!

I spy with my little eye...

A Handley Page Victor......of some sort. Most likely the Prototype judging by the intakes.

Well done 51 !!!

It is the prototype of the Handley Page Victor.  However you missed the bonus points for not mentioning the other vehicle.  :)

It is the "Flash Gordon Rocket Ship".  :)

Your turn 51.

A funny looking "stuka"  :D
It is the famous Vivian Bellamy's Percival Proctor (Junkers Ju 87 Stuka) conversion
used for the film "The Battle of Britain".
- http://www.daveswarbirds.com/bob/misc.htm

However, it did not appear in the final cut of the film  :( its place being taken by large-scale radio-control models.
Its a shame, because it´s a such a nice looking airplane too.
