IrAF ordered 14 Tu-22Bs and two Tu-22Us from the USSR shortly after the October War, in 1973. Ten Tu-22Bs and two Tu-22Us were delivered by 1979. They were stationed at the al-Taqaddum and H-3/al-Wallid ABs, and in service with the 7th Bomber Squadron of the 4th Composite Bomber Wing. Iraqi Tu-22Bs - piloted by Soviet crews - were the first Blinders to be used in combat, when at least two flew a series of strikes against targets in northern Iraq, in September 1974. Later they saw extensive service during the war with Iran, but their losses were also heavy: at least four were shot down by Iranian F-14As alone.

Tu-22K
Unit: 7th BS, IrAF
Serial: 4514

From 1981 the IrAF received four Tu-22Ks and between 200 and 300 Kh-22M and Kh-22MP (AS-4) missiles. By 1986 at least three of these were lost in combat, and the Kh-22s proved a failure in combat. The only known serial applied on Tu-22Ks was 4514 of the 7th BS IrAF, and it is believed that this example survived the war with Iran. Considering the importance and quality of the deployment of this Blinder version and the associated Kh-22 missiles, as well as the intensity with which the Tu-22s were used in this conflict, it is astonishing how little is known about the whole affair.
