Sukhoi Su-17 - 1949

Making its debut in 1949, the Su-17 was intended to compete with the MiG-17 and, according to Russian sources, was the first Soviet aircraft to exceed Mach unity. An interesting feature of the Su-17 was its detachable nose section which, in an emergency, could be employed as an escape capsule.
