1/72 72135 Amodel Su-9 Fishpot
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
The Sukhoi Su-9, NATO reporting name "Fishpot," was a single-engine, all-weather, missile-armed interceptor aircraft. This design was never exported. It was capable of Mach 1.8 at altitude and held a world altitude record. With missiles it was limited to just over Mach 1. The primitive beam-riding radar guided missiles were practically useless in a dogfight and it had no cannon; so it must have been intended as a bomber interceptor. Total production was about 1,100 aircraft and this type was no exported. Use was discontinued in the 1970s when much more capable aircraft and systems replace them. The combat record is unknown, if there is any. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
