Very attractive aircraft; too bad it used underperforming engines (which is a nicer description than my first thought about the engines).

I wonder if there were any British engines that could have been used instead?

Mikoyan I-7K

The USSR had a substantial challenge in defending the vast Soviet airspace frontier, especially as the performance of threat aircraft increased. Among the large interceptor projects of the 1950s was Mikoyan's I-3P, a swept-wing design powered by a single Klimov VK-3 and armed with two 30mm cannon and the capability to carry unguided rockets. Problems with the VK-3 kept the I-3P prototype from being finished as planned, but this airframe was converted to take the Al-7F engine as the I-7. This was intended to lead to an I-7U tactical fighter that would have been accompanied by an I-7K interceptor variant fitted with the Almaz-3 radar and armed with K-6 AAMs. Testing with the I-7 showed a disappointing performance, and no series production of either model would be undertaken.

Beautiful!!  Perhaps with the demand of other programs for R3350 engines, production B-32's could have been fitted with W3420s as trialed on the XB-39?
