It's from Bratukhin, it's based on the Omega II but it has a different designation...you're almost there...but not yet...

You're nearly there... a little help:
It was based on the Omega II or G-2 .
The G-4 was build after the photo subject...
Can't help more than this without giving the answer...

Well, that was what we in the artillery calls a fork. A little far, a little near, a little further, and WHAM!

But for myself - never heard of the machine Tony

Not a Bell XV-3, but it is the same tilt-rotor concept.

Because that's where PZL built the Iskra, which translates as "spark"?

Oh dear. Another quickie, then. Which two jet aircraft had their engines stacked vertically?

EE Lightning is the obvious one.

Are we talking pure jat? There were a few hybrid jet/rockets that had their engines stacked, Mirage for one.

I believe one of the Ye-155 prototypes (during the development of the Mig 25) had stacked engines, and the other is the Lightning, as Graeme says.

Not what I had in mind, I'm afraid. In any event I have me doubts about the Ye-155. The first prototype is usually listed as the reconnaissance variant and all the illustrations of it show basically a conventionally laid-out MiG-25. Given the aerodynamics of the intakes, stacked engines would be nearly impossible - but now that you've piqued my curiosity, I'll check...

Have now checked and I can find no trace of a Ye-155 having stacked engines, even at the drawing stage. Though with Soviet designers anything's possible.

Clue, anyone?

Clue please! The only thing spinning in my mind are the concepts from Gotha during WWII, but I can't believe any of those were even built.
