Prior to the development of the Tu-22, NATO planners had long feared the idea of the Soviets developing a long-range supersonic nuclear bomber. The Tu-22 ‘Blinder’ never really gave the USSR what they were looking for but Tu-22M ‘Backfire’ did! This information-packed volume reveals Soviet tactics for destroying NATO warships using ‘Blinders’, and its use by Libya and Iraq.
