Aircraft Su-22 in Syria


Attack Su-22 continues to be one of the main aircraft of the Syrian Air Force.

Su-22 are an export version of the Su-17. These planes were called "Swifts" during the Soviet war in Afghanistan.



“These shock machines can be considered most affected by the actions of the Americans during this conflict. In the spring of 2017, several such planes were destroyed by cruise missiles at Shairat US airbase, ”writes material author Lev Romanov.



In the summer of this year, the western "fighters against terrorism" on the F / A-18E fighter aircraft shot down another Su-22М4, he recalls. Fortunately, the pilot was successfully evacuated.

Nevertheless, "Swifts" continue to regularly make combat missions and destroy the main threat to their country - the terrorists, the author concludes.

    If we had delivered an IL-2 attack aircraft to Syria, they would have used it with great intensity, since there is no aviation industry and no one except Russia and Iran, it does not now supply military equipment and spare parts for its repair

    Yes ... almost a flying mammoth, but for Syria is still suitable. The car is in many ways of course iconic, derived from the Su-7B, the famous su.chki. It works only during the day and "on sight" is practically the granddaughter of IL-2.
    Of course, at the end of the Syrian war, they are needed in museums and landfills, but so far the Syrians have little choice. They fly on what flies and cannot fly anymore.
    Actually heroes!

      We have enough mammoths on the forum. It works day and night in simple weather conditions ... For dummies: on the SU-17M4 navigation bombing mode is implemented, it may not "sighted" . This is from the same area as the SVP-24, but the correction is different and the algorithm is a little worse .. And placing the SVP-24 on board will not meet any difficulties - a simple replacement of the blocks .... And the fact that we all have our own control systems -17M4 rotted, then from their own stupidity, there is no other reason .... And this despite the fact that
      its PRNK-54 complex is better than on the same-year SU-25 .... I'm not talking about PRNK-54K-1 ...

        Romanenko, the SU-24M, like an airplane, is just shit compared to the SU-17M4. He was left only because he was a carrier of nuclear weapons ... There is almost nothing to do in the after-flight training on the SU-17M4 - it does not fail, but on the SU-24M it is necessary to eliminate malfunctions on 3-4 aircraft at medium flights in order to fit into serviceability. ... And on the SU-24M planes to plan spare flights, but on the SU-17M4 - did not plan ...

      In the photo M4. I served on them in the 523 Orsha 4 of the year as an engineer of the PrNK (until the regiment was liquidated) I served. 1 year in the squadron, then the "mine" In 85 was in Syria on a business trip to them. So this opinion about how it works is the opinion of an amateur who knows aviation from the pictures. By the way, M4 was also a carrier of nuclear warheads. And we periodically underwent training on special suspension. (the "bombing with cabling mode is primarily for him). With the correct sighting and adjustment and entering all the necessary data (day pressure, characteristic time, etc.) and a skilled flyer showed good results. showed

    With normal modernization, the Su-17 would perfectly and economically complement the Su-24/34 .... and Hephaestus and the radar and engine could be updated. In general, I am silent about the cost of a flight hour in comparison with new dryers.

      Right! But, we have a Yak-130, which lifts 3 tons. For comparison, the Su-17 lifts 2,5 tons, and the Su17M is already 4 tons. That is, by and large, somewhere comparable to the Yak-130. Therefore, it is necessary to modernize it to work on the ground.

        I think that’s everything and that’s what’s going on ... the engines want to put more powerful ones, but I still don’t hear about the radar and sighting systems ...

    SU-17M4 implemented navigation bombing mode

    Without GLONAS on the Su-17 and MiG-27, it was an "architectural excess." The notorious SVP-24 is a navigational bombing mode on a "satellite navigator", and not on RSBN-6s or RSDN.

      there was a radar, a flight system with a relief envelope ... some sort of modern topographic location at that time. HEPHEST is good for everyone, but it is not a panacea ...
