Three Reasons Why Russia Deployed Tu-22M3 Strategic Bombers to Iran

Russia deployed Tupolev Tu-22M3 supersonic long-range strategic bombers to the Hamadan airfield in Iran to cut flight times, increase bomb capacity and improve response capabilities of its aircraft taking part in the operation to liberate Aleppo since the outcome of this battle could well determine the future of Syria.

The Tu-22M3 deployment “does not merely help to save time and fuel,” Svobodnaya Pressa reported. “Missions launched from the Hamadan airfield allow Russian aircraft to significantly increase bomb capacity of each plane.” They are estimated to be capable of carrying three times greater payload.

Photos on social media show dozens of police cars and heavily-armed officers around the building.

The officers haven’t evacuated the building, witnesses told Fontanka media outlet, adding that officers aren’t letting anyone into the building either.
