How about refitting the Blinder with turbofans?

Given the podded nature of the blinder's engine installation, it couldn't be that hard to refit it with an afterburning version of the kolesov RD-36-51. At least I wouldn't think so.

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:
