Fire rate1 000 shots/min
Main article: NR-30 (30 mm)

The Su-7BMK is armed with:

  • 2 x 30 mm NR-30 cannons, wing-mounted (80 rpg = 160 total)

Suspended armament

Number of setups6
List of setups
Setup 196 x S-5K rockets
Setup 242 x S-3K rockets
Setup 36 x 250 kg OFAB-250sv bomb
Setup 44 x 500 kg FAB-500M-54 bomb
Setup 52 x 250 kg OFAB-250sv bomb
4 x 500 kg FAB-500M-54 bomb
Setup 66 x S-24 rockets

The Su-7BMK can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 96 x S-5K rockets
  • 42 x S-3K rockets
  • 6 x 250 kg OFAB-250sv bombs (1,500 kg total)
  • 4 x 500 kg FAB-500M-54 bombs (2,000 kg total)
  • 4 x 500 kg FAB-500M-54 bombs + 2 x 250 kg OFAB-250sv bombs (2,500 kg total)
  • 6 x S-24 rockets

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


  • High flight speed and rate of climb
  • Retains energy very well
  • The 4 x 500 kg + 2 x 250 kg bombload allows for efficient bombing
  • Its speed combined with an airspawn lets you quickly reach bomb targets and return to base for rearming before enemies can get to you
  • High ammunition load


  • Decreased manoeuvrability at high speeds
  • Lacks guided weapons: neither AGMs or AAMs are available
  • Wings can be ripped apart if one isn't careful when diving on bomb targets


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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).
