Front undercarriage leg with the cannon protruding from the lower starboard fuselage. Note shell ejector chute in the foreground.

The sorry state of the airframe is especially visible on its lower parts.

A look into the front wheel well shows a very worn painted surface.There are two shades of grey, but I don't know which was the primer and which was the top color here.

I think that the spherical objects visible here are oxygen bottles...

Starboard main undercarriage seen directly from the front. On the armament pylon there is an rocket launcher for unguided ground-attack missiles. The outer pylon carries extra fuel tank (note how close the undercarriage cover comes to it). The "hanging" sheet in the front is in fact a third undercarriage cover, bent and deformed on this aircraft.
