    su-7BKL bomb load

    I'm confused how much payload it can carry
    apparently it carried upto 4000 lb bombs on underwing pylons while the Su-7B can carry only 2000lb
    is that accurate ?

    Convoluted story. The SU-7B had originaly four store pylons, each one of them could carry 500 kgs/1100 lb, two under the wings and two under the fuselage. Late builds of the SU-7BKL received another two pylons under the wings, to a great total of six, that configuration was retrofitted to older "BKL"s and quite a few even older "B"s.
