Are we talking Su-122, like with a gun barrel and tracks in here? A tank in this forum..!!!? Mister Juniormodeler, you do not know what you have just started!

Well, If it is a tank you're after, then PST and Unimodel have (will soon have for Unimodel) one (1/72) in their catalogue, while Tamiya had one (1/35) in theirs. Old kit, that Tamiya, discontinued, but you might find one on e-Bay or somewhere like that...

Presuming you are after a Sukhoi Su22 M3 or M4, SMER have a Iraq option on theirs in 1:72 but its not a great kit apparently so Italeri, Hobbycraft or KP and an after market decal set may work better - prototype was a Su 221, perhaps were the confusion came from ? - a formidable Aircraft - or Tank for that matter (tho the runway may need to be a bit longer !)

I know its absolutly nothing to do with the question but ....
The Russians did combine aircraft and tanks in the form of a gliding tank[:0]. It had detachable biplane wings and tail and was to be towed to the landing area just like any other glider flown to the ground the wings dropped and the fighting commenced.
It flew in prototype form only (minus turret ) and was not used operationaly
if anyone wants more info let me know via this thread and i'll dig the book with it in out of that mess i call my modelling room....GregWink [;)]

KP (Kopro) has a 1/72 and a 1/48 in their catalogue, Hobbycraft has a 1/72 one, and Maquette does the UB variant in 1/72. I had the feeling Hasegawa had one too (1/72) but can't find any refs about it.

For reference, this is what you need:
