Here is some info about MIG 301/321 Hypersonic interceptor/bomber
During 1975-1989 under direction of Н.З.Матюка development of the hypersonic plane on hydrocarbonic fuel was conducted.
There has passed successful protection of outline sketches two various to destination variants of a product, and by two other variants reports have
Under direction of the assistant to main designer П.А.Шустера the аван-project of the plane on which two kinds of fuel (hydrogen — on
