From the early 1950s, the Tupolev Experimental Design Bureau (OKB) had been developing several concept designs for a supersonic strike bomber. The design that was pushed forward was the Tu-22, a concept based on making the subsonic Tu-16 into a supersonic capable aircraft. Through most of the 1950s, the Tupolev OKB refined the design into the initial Tu-22A, twenty of which were produced in 1960.
