So far we have got up to the Su-22 passing by Su-17 early/Su-17/Su-17M/Su-17M2/Su-20; all have been thoroughly researched up to the info we can get is available, and we try to make as historical as possible the camos, weapon loads and detail level...

As you were told, this is not DCS so you may feel the planes "simple", but we try to give you our best withe the tools we have, we just beg for patience ;)

 Don't overly mind "simple" I just want to fly about in my su17 and blow stuff up 😌 Plus DCS isn't as chilled out as this game is so keep up the brilliant work ✌🏻 I got a book on the Sukhoi 17 family and it's got details like takeoff speeds, max range thar sort app of thing if your interested or stuck on anything

Does anyone else read the thread title "Sukhois" as "Sukhosis" like psychosis but with Sukhoi instead of psycho in it? This might just be my dyslexia but from time to time I have to look twice when I see the thread title.

Also, beautiful cockpit guys. I am looking forward to flying from it.

The updates for the nose intakes are all done, reworked minor parts on the different versions.

For comparison, the Su-17 early version and the Su-17M, you can see a smaller dorsal spine, 2 added wingfences and enlarged wingfences on the  M, 4 more fuselage pylons

Currently we are looking for a final solution for the larger front gear bay doors, on some pics, they remain open on ground, on other pics, they are closed.

Hi, Martin, I am not 100% sure, but it seems Su-17 of the first series had the larger front gear bay doors closed when on the ground, those opened and closed only when the gear was extended and retracted. Then Su-17 of the later series were modified and the doors were made to stay open. As I understand the Su-17 was in production from 1970 till 1972 and in 1972 the Su-17M entered production. So you could have an early Su-17 with larger front gear doors closed from 1970 and later Su-17 with larger fron gear doors open from say 1971. I believe that will not be too far from the truth.

Small update on the pit from Logan!! Im so excited!!!

32716510_2140377525979186_95115537424370

The pit mesh itself is borrowed from the exterior model and is WIP, but his panels and new parts as you can see in this and the last pictures, are great!

Thanks Logan! :biggrin:

      I thought I'd share some information on my favourite Su-17 version , feel free to discuss, post questions etc in the comments!! 
      In 1972 the Sukhoi design bureau began work on another variant of the Su-17) it was known only by its in-house designation S-32MK "гибридный" or hybrid, this mated the wings of the Su-7BMK to the fuselage of the Su-17M. The aircraft first flew in February 1973 piloted by Vladimir Krechetov.

       
      The only known photo of the S-32MK to exist in the west, note the large bomb load able to be carried. Also note how the gun blast plates are still installed but the twin NR-30 cannons are not. 

      The S-32MK's fuselage was taken from the new into production Su-17M line, for the S-32MK the uprated AL-21F-3 engine which provided more thrust compared to the standard Fitters then in production. During tests the performance of the Hybrid was better than the Su-17 then in service, the S-32 reached a height of 1800M compared to the 1500M compared to the production Su-17M.

      The fitting of the Su-7BMK wing had positives and negatives, the removal of the complicated and heavy Su-17 swing wing system allowed for not only a lighter airframe but a Increase in the fuel capacity (400kg extra fuel) the removal of the swing wing also allowed for maintenance to be much easier. However a drawback of the wing was a return to the Su-7s high landing and takeoff speeds, poor agility at low speeds and a high stall speed. The test machine also had a 100mph higher top speed compared to the Su-17M due to all the weight saving. 

       
      A side view of the aircraft, again showing the large number of pylons, and highly swept wing. 

      The aircraft was planned to be armed with the standard twin NR-30, 30mm cannons in the wing roots with 80 rounds per gun, the standard six Su-7 pylons (two under each wing and two under the fuselage) were joined by two inner pylons from the standard Su-17 creating a total of eight pylons, two more compared to standard Su-17s, the weight saving allowed for the increase in weapons. 

      The soviet Airforce although interested in the design favoured the Mig-27 and Su-17M, therefore Sukhoi offered the jet on export. It was given the export name Su-20, Egypt was the first country to show interest in the new Sukhoi. However Egypt opted for the Su-17M as it had bad past experiences with the Su-7 and saw the swept wing Su-20 as a throwback to bad experiences, Syria also showed interest however they soon withdrew interest. 

      With the lack of interest by both Soviet and overseas airforces finally meant to a scrapping of the project and in mid 1975 the aircraft was withdrawn from tests and sent to Tula and used as a mechanic practise aircraft until the 1990s, the airframes existence after 1990 is unknown however it is rumoured that it was more than likely scrapped.

       
      Artwork of the S-32MK during tests. The 17 red was only applied for later flights.
