Experimental jet bomber design, a development of the Il-28. The main goal was to develop a practical approach to medium-range (3000...5000km) bomber with bombload 3000...5000kg at speed 900...1000km/h. One of the key question was choice between straight (maximum range) and swept (higher speed) wing.
