It's a cargo plane. It was used to carry parts for Buran shuttle.

Needless to say, when you build such a strange looking plane, you MUST provide it with an equally strange looking landing gear! One huge set of wheels on the fusilage! (And I'm sure there must be a huge "gyroscope" in each wing, to keep the whole thing "level" until it's airborne? Kinda reminds one of a giant U-2.......And that "tail" ?????????

Oh I see.......it's from Myasishchev Design Bureau!
I suppose anyone who can pronounce that, can design "anything"!

There are two sets of wheels, the second set is hidden in the shadows. It's not that different from the B-52, really.
