Ilyushin Il-46

After the Il-30, the Ilyushin design bureau then moved to a scaled-up version of the Il-28 as the Il-46 of 1954 with an uprated version of the Il-30’s powerplant, but this too failed to secure any production commitment. The bureau then moved logically to a fully swept version of the Il-30 that offered transonic capability with the possibility of supersonic speed in a shallow dive, the Il-54.
