Description: The Myasishchev M-55 is a high altitude, geophysical research and reconnaissance aircraft developed by the former Soviet Union on the basis of the M-17 Stratosfera aircraft in the 1980s. The M-55 is powered by two PS-30-V-12 engines derived by the engines powering the Mig-31 high-speed interceptor. Its performance is similar to the US Air Force U-2 spy aircraft. The M-55 Geophysica is known by NATO as Mystic-B and accommodates a larger sensor payload compared with the M-17 airplane. The M-55 entered service with the Russian Air Force in the late 1990s or early 2000s. It is capable of reaching an altitude above 20,000 meters carrying a payload in excess of 1,500 kilograms.
