Notes:

The first Sukhoi Su-7 aircraft arrived in crates by ship at Bombay. These were assembled at Santa Cruz and delivered to 26 Squadron which became the first squadron of Indian Air Force to operate the new type in March 1968. Induction of the Su-7 by the IAF was extremely rapid. No.26 Sqn was followed by No.101 Sqn in July 1968, with No.221 Sqn converting to the Sukhoi in August. A total of about 140 Su-7s were there in IAF fleet.
