Description

During the 1980s, the latest upgraded variants of the Su-17 fighter-bomber were starting to come online in the Soviet air force, and very quickly, it was exported as the Su-22 for Soviet allies. the East German air force would receive 48 of the latest Su-22M4 fighter bomber, and along with it eight of the twin-seat Su-22UM-3K trainer aircraft. The German Su-22s would serve as a frontline strike aircraft in the event of a war with NATO forces, and would remain in East German service until the re-unification of Germany, after which the almost all Su-22s were either scrapped or sold off as they were incompatible with NATO hardware and standards, with only a few being kept and repainted in German Luftwaffe liveries for serving as evaluation and testing aircraft.

The ◊Su-22UM3K was introduced in Update "Wind of Change". Being essentially just a twin-seat trainer variant of the Su-22M3 in the Soviet aircraft tree, it is almost identical in gameplay style, that is being a fast and hard hitting attacker utilizing hit and run tactics. The primary difference between this plane and the aforementioned Su-22M3 is that this one has over ten times the countermeasures, 128x of them compared to the 12x that the Su-22M3 gets. In the German aircraft tree, the Su-22UM3K serves as a stepping stone to the more powerful and versatile Su-22M4, serving the role of a multi-purpose strike aircraft with its abundant countermeasures, decent selection of laser guided air-to-ground ordnance, and R-60 air-to-air missiles for self-defence against enemy aircraft.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very good energy retention, can maintain 800-900 km/h in a turn with wings swept forward and afterburner in use
  • Excellent supply of countermeasures
  • Has 2 pilots
  • Variable sweep wing
  • Versatile S-25 rockets with both unguided and laser-guided variants
  • Unlike the Su-22M3, can mount S-5K rockets

Cons:

  • Overall turn rate leaves something to be desired
  • Extremely sluggish at low speed
  • Massive target, has a very large wingspan with wings swept forward
  • Requires constant use of manual wing sweep in combat
  • Only 1 x NR-30 cannon

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
