Adapted from Models Vit:

    The S-52 fighter-bomber entered service in the USSR Air Forces in June 1981 as Sukhoi Su-17M3. It had been produced in different modifications, including as a reconnaissance aircraft -Su-17M3R. This particular variant was carried the KKR-1 reconnaissance pod in the centerline pylon. The KKR-1 was designed for photographic surveying of small and medium altitudes, day and night, using an A-39 camera, a PA-1 panoramic camera and a UA-47 camera for night photography. In addition, it also enabled the electronic survey via SRS-13 system.

    The reconnaissance container had a negative influence on the flight performance of the plane, therefore, the Su-17M3R required additional attention from the pilots, especially during takeoff and landing. The Su-17M3R was used actively during the Soviet-Afghan conflict for bombing accuracy observation, enemy radar localization and intelligence support via photo, IR and TV equipment. Around 15 various reconnaissance containers had been developed.
