    It could be just tactical nukes truck- not necessarily a doomsday bomber!

    Your engaging in double-think. Use of tactical nukes would be doomsday, what your saying is purely nonsensical.

    When the Backfire is delivering nukes to EU countries you can call it dooms day...

    But not if it bombs an invading army/marines on its own territory or approaching navy in or near its own Arctic EEZ.

    What in the Hell logic is this? If a foreign power is powerful enough to invade, the invading nation (in it's own territory) is getting nuked to kingdom come which equals Dooms Day! The invading army will likely be engaged with Grad, Smerch, Uragan, Tornado-G/U/S Su-25/34, why would they use Tu-22m3m's with the obvious anti-flash white scheme for that purpose? Dude just stop it already. I always see you post just to get the last word in as opposed to acknowledging you engaging in asinine logic. You can't just let things go, it's like your life depends on you getting the last post in. You simply can't accept people will disagree with you, so you'll keep beating topics to death dragging a topic on and on like you always do, and no surprise doing it in this thread....again!

    I like to apply critical thinking & welcome a healthy discussion, that's all- it's not my ego or trolling.
    Some Su-30s also have white underside, so what?

    Do u suggest they paint their Tu-22M3s in olive drab camouflage like the B-1B has? https://i2.wp.com/fightersweep.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/DSC4115.jpg?resize=1024%2C678&ssl=1

    Having white paint has an added deterrent effect as it sends the message that it could deliver nukes.

    why would they use Tu-22m3m's with the obvious anti-flash white scheme for that purpose?

    Actually I would argue if there is an invading army from land or sea that Dooms day is an appropriate description still as well... a naval landing force of marines would probably fear the Backfire the most with its Kh-32 missiles being a huge threat to troop transport ships...

    Takes two to tango... I am probably just as guilty... Embarassed

    Some Su-30s also have white underside, so what?

    Actually I used to think the standard Su-27 colour scheme with blue on top and white underneath was around the wrong way, because when seen from above it would appear blue against the ground while from below it would appear white against possibly a blue sky, but you can't argue with results... recent videos posted showing a Flanker scaring away a gray painted F-15 showed the Flanker was much better camouflaged as it moved away from the aircraft with the camera in it, while the F-15 was easily visible at extended range...

    Russia’s 1st upgraded Tu-22M3M strategic bomber performs 18 successful flights — source

    The upgraded Tu-22M3M will take to the skies several more times by the end of this year


    MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. Russia’s first upgraded Tupolev Tu-22M3M strategic missile-carrying bomber performed 18 successful flights as part of its trials by the end of October, a source in the domestic defense ministry told TASS on Friday.

    "By now, the Tu-22M3M has performed 18 flights as part of factory flight tests," the source said, adding that the flights took place in the daytime and at night.

    The upgraded Tu-22M3M will take to the skies several more times by the end of this year as part of its trials. Also, a second upgraded Tu-22M3M prototype is expected to join the factory trials before the end of 2019, the source said.

    If the flights of the first upgraded Tu-22M3M bomber proceed in the normal mode, it may enter state trials in late 2020 at the Akhtubinsk aerodrome of the Defense Ministry’s 929th State Flight Test Center, the source said.

    The Tupolev Aircraft Company declined to comment on the information provided by the source.

    Nice, so the first is working through factory tests and a second is on the way and they will get it into air force testing next year hopefully... that is good news... this upgrade should end up using missiles like Zircon and Kinzhal and of course the new Grom 1 and 2 type missiles they are working on as well as an enormous range of different bombs and air to ground munitions.

    Wonder if they might try using it in Syria... it would be especially suited to the role if it has inflight refuelling restored... Smile

    Would allow it to deliver a much heavier payload....
