The Tupolev TU-22 was the first supersonic bomber to enter production in the Soviet Union. Manufactured by Tupolev, the Tu-22 entered service with the Soviet military in the 1960s.
The aircraft was produced in small numbers, especially compared to the Tupolev Tu-16 it was designed to replace. The aircraft was later adapted for other roles, notably as the Tu-22R reconnaissance aircraft and as carriers for the long-range Kh-22 anti-shipping missile.
Made by Fuselage Creations the Tupolev TU-22R is made from the skin of the aircraft. Fuselage Creations managed to get the skin of the aircraft to make a limited run of 750 tags.
