im not sure if thrust-vectoring will be very useful on such a large aircraft

Those were useful for boosting its take-off and landing performance, as specially in short run way.

Anyway, thanks for the comments.

OH wow.. I never knew the Buran was destroyed. That's quite dissapointing. I was hoping in my lifetime to see a joint Shuttle mission between the two in space. Would have been a very cool photo to have both docked together or at the ISS.

Question about your A/C. Are there to engine nacels attached to the port and starboard of the main gear? Plus could you make a posting of the specs that are listed. They are a bit too small to read even when the pic is expanded. THANKS :)!

Yeah, I was surprised when I read the fact. Yes there are engine nacels near the landing gear. Its a wild idea to be honest ^_^
As for the spec, I've mended it.

Yeah it is a wild idea. But I would have high concerns for FOD ingestion. But adding thrust vectoring to a cargo aircraft isn't a bad idea. Probably could help in unimproved landing strip take-offs and maybe landings allowing the a/c to come in at a higher flare angle. Cool concept.
