Angolan Air Force Su-22 Fitter-F and Su-22U Fitter-E

Angola procured a batch of six (or five) Su-22 (S-32M2K) Fitter-Fs and two early Su-22U (S-52UK) Fitter-Es two-seat conversion trainers in the early 1980s. Operated by a squadron of the 10th Fighter-Bomber Regiment from Namibe air base staffed by Angolans but supported by numerous Soviet advisers.

The Angolan fleet saw extensive combat service against the regular South African Defence Force in the 1980s, but above all against the insurgents of the UNITA.
