On 22 November 1941, the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF, or AAF) signed the development contract for an XB-35; the contract included an option for a second aircraft, which was exercised on 2 January 1942. The first was to be delivered in November 1943, the second in April of the next year.

The Germans Horton HO was really ahead of its time tho, watched a documentary that simulated its radar cross section and found it would have been right on top of English Air strips by the time our radar would have picked it up.
Anyways back to Russias wing.

Or we're all overreacting to developmental test article and they plan something completely different for the eventual finished product (like the rcs or structural test model seen previously that featured a more "conventional" aft end for contemporary LO flying wings). Still an odd choice to keep what looks like it is essentially an unmodified engine from the Su-57 program, imo.
