Il-36 (Ilyushin) high-altitude reconnaissance

Simultaneously with the work on the IL-30 aircraft, in the summer of 1949, S.V. Ilyushin, on the initiative, proposed a project for the long-range high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft Il-36 with two TV-2 turboprop engines. A straight wing, with significant elongation, allowed the aircraft to conduct reconnaissance from high altitudes. Unfortunately, documents have not yet been found that shed light on the more complete flight technical and combat capabilities of this interesting machine and its further fate.
