Tu-360 Beta by Signum.

 

Work on a Tu-160 successor began already in the early 1980s, when the bomber was still in the flight test phase. Tupolev produced two designs with different cruise speeds. Tu-260 (Aircraft 230) was designed for Mach 4 and a range of 10,000 km. The Tu-360 was much more ambitious: it was to carry a 10,000 kg offensive load to a distance of 15,000 km at a speed of Mach 6. The design team was led by V. A. Andreyev, who was in charge of aircraft designs powered by natural gas and liquid hydrogen at Tupolev. The Tu-360 was to be powered by six variable-cycle turboramjet engines fuelled with liquid hydrogen. Armament was to be carried in two weapon bays located in the wingroots. According to the draft design, the range requirement could not be achieved, maximum range at Mach 6 being 9,000-10,000 km.
