One writer commented on the M-50 that it was 'an outstanding failure which revealed an embarrassing lack of understanding of the problems of high-speed flight.' The truth is that little is known about Bounder. It was a fast jet bomber with four engines, two under the wing and two on the tips of its truncated delta wing.
Second M-50 was designated M-52 and carried Zubets engines around which the aircraft had been designed. The engine installation was modified, and a second tailplane added to the top of the fin.
One of possible armament configuration was single heavy RSS (S-30) cruise missile.
