The Sukhoi
EAF employed two patches of this fighter bomber ; the SU-7, and the SU-20. It is not known if Egypt ever used any other model of this airplane although SU-17 was once pictured carrying the EAF markings ( click here to see).

Both airplanes have shared in many of the wars fought by the EAF particulary the 6 days war in 1967, and the 1973 war. The following two models of the SU-7, and SU-20 pictured here were built in 1/72 scale .
SU-7
This airplane was the first Sukhoi to be used by the EAF and was delivered in the mid sixties. It shared in many wars including the 1967, the attrition , and the 1973 wars.
SU-20
SU-20 represents the export model of the of the SU-17 only used by the USSR. This fighter bomber probably did not share in any war as it was delivered to Egypt in the post 1973 war.
