Myasishchev M-17 "Mystic" 

kit - ref.72024

 The Myasishchev M-55/M-17 (NATO reporting name: Mystic-B) is a high altitude geophysical research aircraft developed by OKB Myasishchev /via Wiki/
The Myasishchev M-17, known as the Mystic or RAM-M, was originally designed in the mid-1950's as a high altitude interceptor, but rather than intercept aircraft, the M-17 was intended to intercept the high altitude reconnaissance balloons the USA were then launching over Russia and shoot them down with a dorsal gun turret.
