    I dont think this thread will have negative effect. Its just for those who are interested in the military history of Iran-Iraq war. What tactics, weapons were used, what battles were won and lost and things like that.
    Dear Malik, Iranians and Iraqis are good friendly neighbors now. :)

    I think it was for the same reason they used tu-16 . For its long range (4900 km ). it could easily reach tehran with no shortage of fuel . But the accuracy of those attacks wasn't high . It could also deliver large payloads .

    This is Tu-16.as far as I remember TU-22 was also used in first day of war in striking Mehrabad airport.the savage thing about that operation was that on the way to home the cannon crew opened fire on random cars on the Tehran-Karaj subway.many innocent civilians lost their lives.

    On the other hand Tu-16 was too slow, big and defenseless to reach into Iranian territory.it was only used on fellow Arabs in Khuzestan and other frontlines.Tu-22 however had a different story and some of them were shot down by IRIAF.

    You can use a heavy bomber like tu-16 when you get the air superiority.in Iraq-Iran war, scenrio was different because we had F-14 as intercepter.so except for the begining of the war those bombers were grounded.some of them also were destroyed on the ground in H3 operation.
