Sukhoi Su-9 'Fishpot-B' ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
The Sukhoi Su-9 'Fishpot-B' was the Su-7's interceptor counterpart, serving exclusively with the Soviet IA-PVO (air defence force). The tailed delta Su-9 was generally similar in configuration to the MiG-21, though larger and heavier. This aircraft was never exported outside the Soviet Union, and saw active duty for only a comparitively brief period before other aircraft developments moved the Su-9 into second line service. The Su-11 all-weather interceptor was a refinement of the Su-9 with a new engine, new radar and improved armament. The Sukhoi 'FISHPOT' was withdrawn from Soviet service around 1980. The Su-9 prototype was the T-3 experimental aircraft that had its maiden flight on May 26, 1956. About 1,000 Su-9s and a number of training two-seaters were produced until 1962. The Su-9 was added into the Soviet Air Defence Service inventory in October 1960 and remained in service until the end of 1970s. About 30 air regiments were armed with Su-9, including 3 regiments in the Moscow Air Defence Region. The Su-9 took part in interceptions of ultra high flying USAF U-2 reconnaissance aircraft in the early 60's.
