    The T-4 was born from the beginning as a bomber and reconaissance aircraft.
    The project was cancelled in 1974.
    Tony Buttler and Yefim Gordon wrote :
    “During the late 1970s there were proposals to convert thr T-4 into a long-range interceptor armed with air-to-air missiles for attacking American B-52s and B-1s loaded with cruise missiles, but these ideas were rejected as impractical.”
    (Soviet Secret Projects – Bombers Since 1945 – p. 141)
