After hard discussions, the Tupolev Design Bureau has been appointed by the USSR Government as a developer of a new antiradar airborne strike complex, armored with Kh-22P missile.The most appropriate airplane for this role was the Tu-22K missile carrier, which had been modified accordingly, receiving the Tu-22KP designation.As a result of the construction adoptions, the tail turret was removed and on its place was installed a special fairing, accommodating emitters for the SPS-151/152 self-protection jammers.Few planes received further enhancements, such as installation of refueling booms, increasing significantly their flight range.This modification was marked as Tu-22KPD.The main task of the airborne strike complex remained É?? destruction of large ground and sea targets with missiles, having conventional or nuclear warheads. The antiradar complex was completely developed in early 70É??s and stood in service till mid 90É??s.
