Sukhoi 22 and Tumanski R29 engine

Now this was a thing that I could just not resist. Someone laid down a gauntlet for me. If I were able to reduce the weight of an SU-22 (about 17 tonnes) to that which would enable it to be airlifted by Chinook (10 tonnes or less) I could keep anything that I wished. The only stipulations being that I left it looking like a jet and safe to airlift. They had approached the owners of an SU-22 in the UK only to be told how long it would take and that it was impossible without shipping all their tooling over and getting a specialist guy from Russia or the Czech Republic. The trouble was they wanted it doing and doing now so I decided to have a go with what I had on hand at the time.
