The fatal flight in blizzard conditions was a routine training mission, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, which initially said that the bomber carried no weapons during the incident. However, later reports suggested the jet was armed with one Kh-22 long-range anti-ship missile and several hundred aircraft cannon ammo. An investigation has been opened to determine the cause of the crash.
