General Background:

Designed as a tactical bomber/reconnaissance aircraft to replace the Yak-28, the Su-24 was first flown on July 2nd, 1967.

The Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer is a supersonic, all-weather attack aircraft developed in the Soviet Union. The aircraft has a variable-sweep wing, twin-engines and a side-by-side seating arrangement for its two crew. It was the first of the USSR's aircraft to carry an integrated digital navigation/attack system. The Su-24MR is a dedicated tactical reconnaissance variant that first flew on 25 July 1980 as T-6MR-26 and entered service in 1983. The Su-24MR retains much of the Su-24M's navigation suite, including the terrain-following radar, but deletes the Orion-A attack radar, the laser/TV system, and the cannon in favor of two panoramic camera installations, 'Aist-M' ('Stork') TV camera, RDS-BO 'Shtik' ('Bayonet') side-looking airborne radar (SLAR), and 'Zima' ('Winter') infrared reconnaissance system.

The Aircraft:
