Been mulling a Blinder build using SR-71 engines.  US markings.

Random idea:  Cuban Tu-22.  With an unrefueled combat radius of between 1300 - 2450km (depending upon variant) it could potentially cover a fair chunk of the USA from bases in Cuba.  With either freewill bombs or AS-4 Kitcen staff missiles, one could certainly imagine this becoming a major focus for USAF/USNG/USN interceptors.

Either way, imagine Tu-22s in this sort of scheme:
