Project Background

The Su-17 project was started in summer of '08. The intention was to create a fighter-bomber that could adequately be explained away for SLA usage in ArmA. Given the Su-17's real world status as a cheap, dependable, and rugged fighter-bomber, it worked out well for that purpose. Unfortunately, 2 years later and it's still far from complete, and the planned campaign never got beyond 2 missions. However, we have managed to put a lot into the Su-17 itself:

There's many other features, but I'll try to cover most of them in detail in this manual. I apologize that this cannot be a final 'public release', but ArmA1 is getting quite old now and I'd like to begin moving to ArmA2 modding. As a result, this project is released in a 'AS-IS' state. It's better than nothing, right?
