This basic Tu-95 with a built-in pressurized pax cabin replacing bomb compartments was built specifically for the purpose of flying Nikita Khrushchev to the USA in case Tu-114 would not have been ready in time. The aircraft was eventually used for flying Tu-95 maintenance crews and is the only surviving example of two built.
