The Sukhoi Su-17 (NATO reporting name: Fitter) is a Soviet variable-sweep wing fighter-bomber developed from the Sukhoi Su-7. It enjoyed a long career in Soviet, later Russian, service and was widely exported to Eastern Bloc, Arab air forces, Angola and Peru as the Su-20 and Su-22. The Su-20/22 designation was mainly used to identify upgraded Su-17 export aircraft with the M3/M4 sub-variants being two of the last batch produced.

The Su-17UM was the first two seat trainer with the same avionics suite as the Su-17M2. The UM series had a second instructor cockpit installed in place of the fuselage fuel tank (thus reducing overall internal fuel capacity). To improve forward visibility for the rear instructor, a retractable periscope/mirror was added on top of the rear canopy and the rear view mirror of the front canopy was deleted. Additionally, the portside NR-30 cannon was deleted, however full avionics and ordnance pylons were retained making the trainer fully combat capable. Export versions with the R-29 engine were designated Su-22U. Manufactured 1976-1978, entered service in 1976.

The Su-17/22UM3 (S-52UM3, "Fitter-G") was an improved variant (believed to be based on the Su-22M3/4 airframe) followed the Su-22UM on the production line. Featuring the taller squared off vertical tail and ventral fin of the Su-22M-4, although the M4 fin intake and dedicate AAM pylon were not installed. Su-22UMs can be equipped with with a single chaff/flare dispensers on either side of the tail, while the single seat Su-22M4 can carry two such dispensers.
