Photo Comment

Shortly after the NVA received Su-20s from the Soviet Union the BND (West German Federal Intelligence Service) managed to acquire two examples from Egypt that were subsequently performance evaluated by WTD 61 at Manching. One of these ex-Egyptian machines is now on show at the Luftwaffenmuseum der Bundeswehr at Gatow.
