In order to facilite the training of Su‑7 pilots, a new two-seat combat-training variant, the Su-7U version was developed in the branch construction bureau in Komsomolsk in 1966. It was a long-awaited, but much-delayed construction. It differed from the fighter-bomber variants in construction changes caused by fitting a two-seat cockpit and the attached weapons payload was decreased to 500 kg.

By the end of 1966, production of the export Su-7UMK version started, for countries operating the Su-7BMK. Poland bought eight Su-7U in 1969, 1971, 1976, 1977 and 1984. The Su-7 was operated by Polish military aviation untill 1990.
