    soviet cold war era conventional bombs

    It seems like the 1500kg bomb was used by the soviet Su-24s

    Can it be used by the Mig-27 and Su-17/22 as well ? if not what is the biggest size of conventional bomb use by Mig-27 and Su-17?

    AFAIK the FAB 1500 was in use on bombers only (Tu-16, Tu-22 ect.). The jets used the streamlined bombs of 1962 design and the heaviest was 500 Kg.

    Yak-28 could carry FAB-1500, IMHO
