Su-17/S-23, P.O.Sukhoj 'Fitter'

Su-17M1 'Fitter-C' (33k), Khodynka, Paul Nann;

The Su-17 (bureau designation S-23) was a large step in the development of the Su-7B to a more useful attack aircraft. The most important change was the introduction of swiveling outer wing panels, improving take-off and landing performance, and thus allowing a larger weapons load.

Impact of this modification was great : with 50% more payload Takeoff Roll became twice as short and range twice as large.
