I know the Soviets had something similar (the Tu-95LAL), but I haven't been able to find any vids of it on youtube.

 

Interestingly, it doesn't appear as though the Soviets ever got a B-36 analogue into service (probably the closest would be one of the concepts such as the Tu-85).

The B-36 was a very very good plane right up until afterburning jets with better engines like the MiG-17 got made. Then it was an obsolete deathtrap. Getting that sort of niche prop stuff done probably took until it was clear that sort of design was on its way out.
