Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) in April will be replenished with 22 Grach attack aircraft in the most advanced version of the Su-25CM3, Interfax reports citing an informed source in aviation industry.


The upgraded Su-25CM3 assault aviation aircraft are now being accepted by specialists of the military mission. A month later they must go to the troops
- Said the source agency.

Media: Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation in April will receive 22 attack aircraft "Grach" in the latest version of the Su-25CM3


According to him, the party consists of 22 latest attack aircraft, upgraded to the look of the Su-25CM3. It is noted that the combat aircraft underwent a large-scale modernization - "all the old onboard electronic equipment, which stood on the Su-25 and Su-25CM, thrown out and put a new one."

Due to the difficulties in developing new systems, flight tests, according to the Su-25СМ3, were somewhat delayed, so now the aircraft are transferred to the military under several contracts at once, including the state defense order 2017 of the year.

As previously reported, flight tests of the Su-25CM3 began in January 2017. In the course of the meeting, the need to refine the software of some aircraft systems was revealed, which was done.

The development of an improved version of the Su-25 is being conducted by the Sukhoi Attackers Research and Production Concern; direct modernization of the aircraft is carried out at the 121 aircraft repair plant in Kubinka, situated near Moscow. Su-25MX3 is the second major modification of the aircraft, the attack aircraft had previously been upgraded to the Su-25CM version, which proved itself in a real combat situation in Syria. Upgrades to the Su-25CM3 version are subject to both the Su-25 combatant and the Su-25CM attack aircraft that have previously been upgraded.

In total, the Russian Air Force has 14 squadrons armed with Su-25 attack aircraft, their total number is about the 200 aircraft and they will all be modernized, the concern added

      this is a purely anti-tank version, because such a highly specialized machine did not interest the military in the saints of the 90s

        But I’m interested in something else. Over the past twenty-five years, the number of Rooks has decreased due to objective reasons. Are their numbers restored?

                UAVs do not even use hateful fighters against such targets. They also have a Warthog and more.

            Our strike UAVs can fly within a radius of 100 km, and even then if there is no opposition! Dear NasRat, how do you replace them with an airplane with a radius of 650 km?

              Progress, my friend, progress is underway! ... Let’s not change anything and let there be a radius of 650 km ... another two hundred years! And we have plenty of pilots, one will be shot down during an attack, the other at the helm ...
              It’s good that you don’t offer to fly on IL-2!

                    Well, intellectuals from the VKS offer you to use a front-line bomber with a take-off weight of about 40 tons of SU-34 as an attack aircraft ... Well, that’s not a Tu-22M3 ....

          The aircraft is discontinued. There is only a modernization. He will be replaced by an impact UAV. Information about this was already on the site. Approximate deliveries start / mid 20's.

            It’s interesting how Sukhoi attack aircraft moved to install PNKs with SVP-25-3 on the SU 24SM25 ?! I don’t believe it or they were forced .... Do you remember how their department tried to block SU-24M with modification to M2, and they completely blocked modification with SVP-24 and wanted to ban it? Only a happy coincidence and perseverance of a group of people allowed to finalize several boards and defeat corruption in the future .... Now, after the triumphal work of the SVP on SU - 24M in Syria, everyone is trying to forget it. But we remember the tricks of "Pogasyan and Co." and greed for dough .... Until now, no one knows how many aircraft have been modified and what it cost .....

          Do you offer to restart production? This is stupid and not profitable, even if you run it, it is already a new modern product.

        No. The Su-39 is too expensive a modernization of 25, so he was not interested in the “military” like Serdyukov, although the Sukhogruz KEPP was already there so that the MANPADS would not be wasted.

          The Su-25SM3 already has the Vityaz BKO.

      And where did Su-39 go? Who knows?

      Turned off the project.
      Su-39 is essentially an anti-tank complex.
      Anti-tank attack aircraft, the further development of the Su-25T. It is equipped with the Spear-25 radar station in a hanging container.

      And the SU-25M3 is a multi-purpose attack aircraft ..
      Updated single attack aircraft. The GLONASS satellite navigation system with the ability to program the end point with an accuracy of ten meters has been added, it allows the pilot to operate autonomously with "zero" visibility. Equipped with PNK SVP-24-25 (version SVP-24 "Hephaestus" for the Su-25), which allows to increase the accuracy of unguided aircraft weapons to the level of guided weapons

      Which can work not only on land, but also on marine targets.

        It's time to replace the drone with a drone ... instead of the Grach ... the work of the pilot of the Grach (even in Syria, where air defense does not oppose) is similar to a kamikaze ...

          UAVs in a serious war are not capable of anything except intelligence. In wars, pilots and tankers and artillerymen and special forces and foot soldiers and signalmen and cooks are killed for your information. Will we replace all of them with robots?

        Skate SU 25SM3 equipped with the Vitebsk 25 system, Its “heart” is a digital active jamming station (CSAP), CSAP is complemented by a missile defense system with a thermal homing head.
        This topic, SU 25CM3, was discussed in detail at the Military District after the destruction of our "rook" in Syria.

          That's just passive protection against missiles with infrared seeker SM3 SM39 has not received. Once on the Su-195 it was planned to install the R-3 with a XNUMX-fold reduced IR signature. The plans, as you know, remained on paper. And whether Vitebsk with PPI will be sufficient is still unknown.

      And where did Su-39 go? Who knows?
      Much of the Su-39 migrated to the new modernization of the Su-25, primarily the ability to shoot ATGMs.
      Well, they made the right org conclusions, and then cars not protected from MANPADS fly at the front lines in Syria. And pretty quickly, it pleases. good
      A little off topic.
      The other day, our VKS hit the headquarters of the militants in Idlib, saying up to twenty large and small leaders were destroyed. good

      He died due to the high cost and extreme complexity of the application, even by experienced pilots:
      This was noted in the GI Su-25T Act. The remark was made by the Institute of Aviation and Space Medicine. It was written approximately as follows: "When performing a number of combat use modes, the psychophysiological load on the pilot is close to the limit."

      Moreover, this remark did not apply to combat pilots, but to test pilots. Even for testers, it was difficult to simultaneously engage in piloting, monitoring the air and ground conditions, detecting, selecting and using weapons on purpose. And if you add to this the front and rear air defense and missile defense ...
