The Tupolev Tu-22 was a supersonic bomber, the first one in Soviet Union. Easily identifiable with its typical shape due to the engines mounted on the basis of the vertical tail, its lacks sufficient range for intercontinental missions. Despite several considerable problems (difficult transition of former Tu-16 pilots which result in several crashes, widespread unserviceability, limited operational capacity), the type was used until the 1990's after it was upgraded to reconnaissance tasks or developed as a missile carrier. The last Tu-22 subtype was the Tu-22P ('Blinder-E') electronic warfare version.
311 Tupolev Tu-22 of all variants were built.
