I've asked a friend, Logan aka "Laszlo" :biggrin:, to help me in a case, where i know, there are guys out there, who are far better than me.

He said yes, and he suffered under my constant, questions, chats, and messages. but the result and work he put into this, is great! The attention to detail is high!
This is still WIP but it is far better than i ever could produce. Im happy to show you those first pics.

Our plan is to provide pits up the the M series :drinks:

Since the thread says Sukhois - stupid question but I gotta ask: Are you going beyond Fitters to Flankers because I suspect your Flankers will be of high quality?

 

Because in the 2Q or 3Q of 2019, I want to get serious about working on a Japan vs. Russia 2020 campaign over the Kuril Islands.  Thanks.

And here you can see it ingame, the skin needs a bit finetuning but the result is nice.

Today Enoc will send me a skin for this bird, and i can later upload this fakepilot pack here at CA. My work is just visual and done out of pure lazyness to build a complete new flanker. Heberth is working on a whole series and we are also involved into it, but for now. I can send you guys this here if you like it.

Hello !

Any news about this great update project ? :drinks:

Best regards,

Coupi.

      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.
