A military derivation of the Tu-114 has the designation Tu-126 and NATO reporting name 'Moss'; believed to be conversions of ex-Aeroflot civil airliners, these aircraft have been modified for use as airborne warning and control aircraft with a rotating radome pylon-mounted over the rear fuselage. The aircraft also has an inflight-refuelling probe and a number of blisters and fairings covering operational equipment. The former passenger cabin provides ample space for extensive communications, radar and signal processing equipment, and consoles for specialist operators.
