The SU-22 was designed as a high speed, medium range, low level ground attack and recconnaisance aircraft. Although its origin can be traced back to the basic SU7 aircraft of the 1950's, the design was continuously developed emerging as the variable geometry (Swing-wing 30:63) SU17 / 22, the most modern and powerful Warsaw Pact fighter bomber. The intent of the design was to have trouble free use under the most demanding operating and environmental conditions combined with ease of maintenance.

The SU22 M4 is still widely used in Europe and the Middle East, being broadly compatible to a Tornado GR1 although lacking the latter's all-weather capability. Like the Tornado it is equipped with a laser range finder designator and terrain following radar and could be equipped with bombs, guided missiles and rockets in addition to the installed twin 30mm canon for the air to surface attack role. Air-to-air threats were countered via rockets, guided missiles and canon.

This is a Monograph on this supersonic fighter bomber, containing 165 photos, including numerous colour photos with English/Polish photo captions, featuring external and internal views, and 3 colour profiles. Includes a free decal sheet.
