Thorough Aerofax-series coverage is given here to the 'Fitter' family of Soviet fighters and fighter-bombers, with masses of fresh information and images emerging from previously unseen Russian sources. The Su-7 was first flown in 1958, with deliveries to the Soviet Air Force beginning in the same year. It could be seen as the Soviet contemporary of the F-100 Super Sabre. The original high-speed, highly-maneuverable single-seat fighter was developed in several versions and produced in large numbers for the VVS and Warsaw Pact countries during the 1960s. It was developed in the late 1960s with a completely new variable-sweep wing as the Su-17 fighter-bomber, again further modified during its long life to take on many other roles including reconnaissance, training and so on. The Su-22 was an export version of the Su-17, and the 'Fitter' family has served with many air forces in Europe, Libya, Peru, Vietnam and Syria.

This book is a collection of "there I was" stories highlighting the experiences of Canadian Forces pilots who have had the opportunity of a lifetime to fly in the combat aircraft operated by former adversaries. Technical descriptions of key Soviet-built fighter jets such as the MiG-15, MiG-21, MiG-23, MiG-25, MiG-29, Sukhoi Su-22 and Su-27 are included for general reference. The Canadian Fighter pilots mentioned in the story have generously provided their observations and comments on their specific experiences of flight in aircraft such as the MiG-29 (NATO codenamed Fulcrum), Sukhoi Su-22 (codenamed Fitter) and Su-27 (codenamed Flanker), both in Canada and overseas. The stories as told first hand by the pilots who contributed them should provide interesting reading for aviation enthusiasts of all ages. An Annex listing aircraft known to have been brought to the West by defecting pilots since 1949 is also included. The Annex briefly describes pilots and aircraft and the circumstances that brought the various defectors to the west, including the MiG-15 flown to South Korea by Lieutenant No Kum-Sok and the MiG-25 flown to Japan by Lieutenant Viktor Belenko. Brief details of Soviet-built aircraft later flown in NATO opposition force flight test programs are also included.
