Interesting picture of the Tu-4 "Bull" AWACS.Was it a success or just a test-bed? I have a feeling that it wasn't able to perform the AWACS role that well.Of note however is what appears to be turbo-props instead of the original Wright-Cyclones of the B-29 (were there Soviet copies of this engine?).
They switch out the original engines with the 4 WJ6 turboprop engines found on the Y-8.
Fantastic. Great pictures
