Su-20
Unit: 10th FBS
Serial: C-501

The fate of the 10th Fighter-Bomber Squadron of FAPA-DAA was typical for the history of most units of the Angolan air force in the 1980s: the unit received ten aircraft in 1983, but was slow in becoming operational and suffering heavy attrition during the work-up period. By 1985 only four aircraft remained operational. Then a group of Soviet pilots and technicians was added in order to improve the situation. The 10th FBS eventually participated in the Operation 'Second Congress', flying a number of strike sorties, but one of its mounts was shot down on 7 September 1985 east of Mavinga, and two other in November - while attempting to support retreating FAPLA units.

Su-22M4 Fitter K
Unit: 26th Air Regiment
Serial: C-518

Luanda, Angola, sometimes in the 1990s: in 1990 the USSR delivered 14 Su-22M-4Ks and two Su-22UM-3Ks to Angola. The aircraft entered service with the 26th Air Regiment, based in Mocamedes. During the war against the UNITA, however, they were frequently deployed to Lubago AB as well. The aircraft depicted here was seen after a wheels-up landing in Luanda, at an unknown date. Interesting is the lack of national markings: photographs of the 'C518', shown here, as well as the 'C517', show them without any national markings. It is possible that these were left out, or added later, but photographs of other examples from this series - including the C510 (which inherited the serial from an Su-20M, lost during the fierce battles in 1987), indicate that this was not the case. The colors used for their camouflage were also used on the Su-22M-4Ks supplied to Iraq, in 1986 (with exception of sand: Iraqi examples were painted only in green and brown). Of further interest is that on the C510 the serial is applied with an '-' between C and 510, i.e. as 'C-510', but that this is not the case with either the C517 or C518. Also, the drop tanks for these aircraft were painted in brown overall. When making the wheels-up landing, the C518 carried two drop tanks under the fuselage (instead under the wings, as more usual), and UB-16-57 rocket launchers under inner underwing pylons. Some of the examples from this series were seen carrying the rails for R-60/AA-8 missiles, and others not.
