In Yefims Aerofax on the Su-24 (Fencer) he mentions one unbuilt project as being a Naval version in the late 70's early 80's period before the carrier size was reduced and focus concentrated on the Su-27 and Mig-29 variants.

Has anybody any details, drawings, model photo's of the Carrier version ?

Cheers

Geoff

I've never seen any. The Su-24K project was only studied during the preliminary phase of 1160 carrier development (1969-1971) and proved unsatisfactory, mainly due to increases in weight and poor aerodynamic characteristics. Sukhoi proposed switching to the Su-27 and this was officially ratified in 1972.
