Shots from Syria: Su-25 withstood hit from large-caliber anti-aircraft guns

The Russian Aerospace Forces increased the number of combat missions to the province of Idlib due to the active offensive actions of the Syrian army. The Su-25 attack aircraft, which are better suited for rendering direct fire support from the air, are taking part in the operation.

Terrorists, in turn, do not abandon attempts to bring down Russian planes, not realizing that to make it available to them weapons will not work. Moreover, the Russian armored Su-25 has repeatedly come under fire from the ground, but no case was a success for the militants.

Another attempt was made on February 1. The terrorists opened fire from large-caliber anti-aircraft installations, and as seen on the video's 15 second, one of the shells hit the attack corps. However, it did no harm to him and the plane continued its flight in a given direction.

      According to the mind, instead of the stillborn MIG-29 \ 35, funds should be invested in modernization, production, and even in development Of modern SU-25 analogue .. It will be much more useful for our army and aviation as a whole ..

    When slowing down, it can be seen that the shell exploded when the plane did not fly, i.e. there was no hit.

      One of the two, either a non-contact fuse worked, or ours invented and put on a ground attack aircraft some kind of system to detonate flying anti-aircraft shells at a safe distance))

      And what do you think fragments from an exploding shell could catch a plane?

    And they said that our planes bombed from heights of at least 5000 meters ...

      The Su-25 has an outdated sighting system, at 1000 meters there are problems.

        There the Su-25SM and the new sighting system, bombing mainly by navigation

      Bombers bomb (usually) from high altitude, and the Su-25 is a ground attack aircraft.

        Yes, it’s clear that the attack aircraft is storming.

    Firstly: where is the "hit in the ground"? Secondly: if the enemy has anti-aircraft guns on the armament, then pilots must observe a flight altitude inaccessible to anti-aircraft fire. And thirdly: if the enemy knows nothing about the presence of anti-aircraft guns (missiles, MANPADS, etc.), the head of intelligence "to the wall"!

      It is well known that there are MANPADS.

    In fact, the video clearly shows that the shell exploded nearby, no less than five meters, and maybe even further.

    Here they said that it is impossible to bring down our plane. But they shot down! The blessed memory of the Hero Pilot.
