The Myasishchev M-60 was a Soviet design for a nuclear-powered bomber. The design was similar to the M-50 bomber prototype.
Myasishchev received the instruction to start the development of the M-60 on 19 May 1955. However, it did not make it out of the planning stage, and the M-60 program was cancelled in 1959.
It appears that the M-60 designation has been used for a number of projects at Myasishchev, including a recent transport and civil aircraft.
