Oh, my favourite version. KM. I had no idea there was a kit of this version. I modeled this turbo prop plane in 3D. 🙂 The only trace of reference material for the tail gun, was a measly 100x200 px photo or something like that. 😄

So, this plane share the same hull diameter as the US B-29. All stemming from some B-29's doing an emergency landing in Soviet Union, leading to Soviets re-engineering the B-29 and making their own bomber, and later they designed the Tu-95 from their B-29 clone iirc. The KM version was a platform for a crude radio guided cruise missile, which looked like a small jet. According to a book, the design was outdated with improved ground to air missile systems in USA.

The single huge cruise missile, was fitted on the underside of this plane, and was half sticking out at the bottom, with its two wings on the outside. A book on the subject said something like, it took 18 hours or so to prepare a nuclear warhead early in the 50's or so, but then they shortened the preparation time down to 3-6 hours or so in later years after that.
