We received this photo (click on the picture to enlarge) via private message and therefore we cannot guarantee its authenticity (and where/when was taken).
According to those who sent it to us these would be two Sukhoi Su-22 of the LNA destroyed after an attack performed by an GNA drone (probably Turkish Baykar UAV).
We do not know how many Su-22 are still operating in Libya (The Libyan Air Force operated as many as 90 Su-22 aircraft, with around 40 Su-22M3 and Su-22UM3K aircraft in service at the beginning of 2011 when the Libyan uprising started. During the Libyan Civil War, the Gaddafi regime used Su-22s in combat operations.).
