The Tu-22 'Blinder' never really gave the U.S.S.R. what they were looking for in a supersonic nuclear bomber, but the Tu-22M 'Backfire' did–it's truly a long range supersonic bomber. This book reveals Soviet tactics for destroying NATO warships using 'Blinders' and its use by Libya and Iraq. Yefim Gordon, of Moscow, Russia, is a noted Russian aviation historian and writer who has had several books published in the west. Vladimir Rigmant, of Moscow, Russia, is an aviation historian specializing in the Tupolev design bureau.
