The Tu-22M3 "Backfire-C" was the latest version of Tu-22M Family. She was equipped with new engines, two NK-25 engines replacing the original NK-22s made it capable of Mach 1 at low level with a max speed of Mach 2.05. Also the maximum wing sweep was increased back to 65 degrees. The Tu-22M3 was also armed with a new weapon, the Kh-22. No Tu-22M Backfires were exported. Russia remains the biggest operator of the type, Ukraine is the only other operator, having inherited a large number of Tu-22M3 from the Soviet Union. All of them were scrapped in 2005.
