Thats because the Peruvian jets are Su-22Ms (sans suffix), which didn't have the ventral fin. Su-22Ms were sold to non-warsaw pact countries, where as the Su-22M3 (which had the ventral fin, was capable of carrying a more advanced catalog of A2G ordnance, and was otherwise externally identical) were sold to WP-allies. Libya procured a number of late model Ms as replacements over the years and flies a mixed fleet (fin and no fin)... Peru's jets were all early Su-22Ms, no fin.
