Secrets of forgotten victories. The tragedy of the Russian miracle


In 1963, the design bureau of Pavel Osipovich Sukhoi began designing a unique aircraft under the secret code "100". Chief Designer "weave", as it was called the developers, was appointed an outstanding aircraft designer Naum Semenovich Chernyakov.
After 6 years, "weaving" was ready for flight tests. It was a truly fantastic machine - cruise missiles with nuclear warheads. Abroad, "weave" was called "Russian miracle" and the plane of the twenty-first century. And today in the third millennium there is no aircraft with similar characteristics in the world. Unfortunately, after 10 successful flights, this project was closed.
