 combat load - 8000 kg on 8 points of suspensions

 

Aircraft has two installed AL-21F engines (side by side) in two isolated compartments - left and right, separated by fire-bulkhead.

  • Combat load - 8000 kg on 8 points of suspension 
  • Built-in 23-mm gun GSh-6-23M with 500 shells, 
  • 120 (6 × 20) × 80 mm S-8 in blocks B-8M,
  • 10 × 500 kg (OFAB-500ShR) or 
  • 16 × 250 kg (OFAB-250ShN)


Su-24M equipped with sight-navigation system PNS-24M "Tigr", which combines 13 subsystems. It includes: pulse Doppler radar "Orion-A", the terrain following radar "Relief", and also optoelectronic system "Kayra-24" with laser target designator and block of television survey.

Flight and navigation equipment provides access to the target area in the mode of autonomous navigation on a programmed route by automatic terrain following on the altitude of 200 m at a speed of 1320 km/h, that much increases aircraft combat survivability. It includes airborne computer TsVU-10-058К, inertial system МiS-P, automatic flight control system SAU-6М1 PPV. Also there is a weapon control system SUO-1-6М.

Radio navigation aircraft equipment provides solution of short-range and long-range navigation problems and landing in adverse weather conditions.

It includes:

  • airborne radio system of short-range navigation RSBN-6; 
  • automatic radio compass АRK-10 for piloting by drive broadcasting stations and radio beacons ; 
  • aircraft responder SО-63B, which provides the solution of air traffic control problems aerodrome area; 
  • TL antenna system (AFS) "Pion-GТ-b", that provides work of RSBN-6 and SО-63B.
