Each limited run, cleanly injection molded models features 47 parts, (2) AA-3 missiles and Soviet decals for all most any fuselage number. Realizing the inherent shortcomings of the Sukhoi Su-9, Sukhoi began work on and upgraded version in the late 1950s. It first flew in 1961 and earned the NATO reporting name Fishpot C. Su-11 had a more powerful radar ("Skip Spin" to NATO), a much more powerful Lyulka AL-7F-1 engine and R-98 missiles to replace the questionable K-5s. Of the pair carried, one was infra-red and the other beam riding. Production began in 1962 and about 100 aircraft total were produced. Sukhoi OKB was not satisfied with the Su-11 and considered the Su-15 Flagon to be superior. However, the Su-11 continued in service until about 1983, under the Soviet policy of more (even if obsolete) is better.
