“Backfires & Blinders & Badgers & Bears, oh my!”

Now that I’m well under way on new models for cold waters that got me thinking about the lack of Soviet Naval Jet-Powered Bombers & Command & Control Aircraft so I’m addressing this in 2 ways first off 4 new Russian Naval front line Bombers from 60,s to Now
1.) The Tupolev Tu-16 (NATO reporting name: Badger)
2.) The Tupolev Tu-22 (NATO reporting name: Blinder)
3.) The Tupolev Tu-22M (NATO reporting name: Backfire)
4.) The Tupolev Tu-22M3M (NATO reporting name: Backfire)
These New Jet Navy Bombers add more challenge to the game Because they are faster then Propeller Aircraft so they get to you Much Faster so in turn you have less time to react & get away from the launch point once you have fired missiles or if you get detected via other means they can get to your location far faster the second change is the arrival of AWACS.
