A face only a mother(land) could love

Alternate title: The Soviet Yak-28 "Brewer-C" is one ugly aircraft.

I get that the Reds valued function over form, but even that has to have proper limits! Some comrade really looked at the final product and thought "Yeah, this looks good." The wings look so thin and narrow in that picture that I'm surprised that they could support the weight of those engines. Probably why they needed landing gear on the ends.
