The plane has improved aerodynamics, additional wing hard points for external fuel tanks, capability to wear nuclear weapons, and was powered by all-new AL-7F-1 turbojet engine.

The Sukhoi Su-7 (known to NATO as the Fitter) was originally designed as a low-level dogfighter. However, it didn't perform well in that role so it was relegated to being a ground-attack and fighter-bomber aircraft. The Su-7BM had its engine upgraded and was capable of carrying nuclear bombs. There were almost 300 of this variant built.

Недавно мне в руки попала свеженькая модель Су-7БМ от молодой украинской фирмы ModelSvit. Этой моделью фирма открывает линейку своих пластиковых китов в 72 масштабе (номер модели по каталогу – 72001). Ее появление для многих оказалось неожиданным, так как ранее о разработке этой модели информации не «просачивалось». Поэтому надеюсь данный обзор будет интересен.
