The first photographs to illustrate the Sukhoi Su-22 Fitter-F in service with the Fuerza Aerea Peruana. The first Su-22s were purchased by Peru in 1976, and those illustrated belong to Escuadron de Caza 11 ''Los Tigres"of Grupo de Caza 12. Normally based at Las Palmas, this Escuadron is seen at the Jorge Chavez Airport, Lima, to where it has been deployed during the current tension between Peru and Ecuador. A second unit operating the Su-22 within the FAP is the Escuadron de Caza 13. The original purchase of the Sukhoi aircraft by the FAP comprised 32 single-seat Su-22s and four two-seat Su-22Us, but a further batch of 16 was ordered last year.
The first photographs to illustrate the Sukhoi Su-22 Fitter-F in service with the Fuerza Aerea Peruana, a two-seat Su- 22U Fitter-E also being visible in the line-up left.
A line­up of Fitter-Ds, the first version of the Sukhoi tactical fighter to be equipped with terrain-avoidance radar and a laser marked target seeker. The Fitter-D is essentially similar to the export Fitter-F in Peruvian service.
