The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced a competition for the modernization of the Su-25

The Russian Defense Ministry is holding a tender for repairs with the modernization of the Su-25 attack aircraft in the Su-25CM3 version, reports bmpd.

According to the documentation published on the state procurement website, the cost of the transaction should not exceed 1,6 billion rubles.

It is indicated that by November 10, the military department expects to receive four updated aircraft by 2019.

The contractor will be determined in June, "according to the results of a closed auction," according to the materials.

Last year, the Ministry of Defense concluded a similar contract with JSC 121 aviation repair factory. " Attack aircraft must be handed over to the customer by the end of 2018.

Reference bmpd: “By the beginning of 2018 of the year, 121 Aviation Repair Plant JSC (Kubinka) carried out a serial modernization of X-NUMX of Su-14 planes according to Su-25СМ25 variant - five in 3 and nine in 2016.

      Yes, they kind of said that machines were already being modernized .... they just said our Baltology is EVERYTHING. That is, in Syria we fly on machines with technical equipment of the 70s ..... without comment.

      This is just a tender for the selection of a direct contractor. Where did you see the intermediaries?
      Or are we working for a fan?

      There is another vision: A-10 is not worse than Su-25

    The Chinese when they commented on the death of our rook with the pilot Phillipov were right- they said that fighting with attack aircraft nowadays is just risking an expensive plane and the lives of pilots, it’s much cheaper and easier to make shock drones, which an ordinary gamer will be able to control after a short training course sitting in a chair with a cup of coffee (is there really a difference in the six-year training of a military jet pilot, not only in time, which in the event of war, but also in money) And in terms of combat capabilities, the last attack drones will not yield to a rook in height there is no flight in the review and the armament is similar (for the USA ATGM Helfire, for the EU ATGM Hot, for the Jews Lahat, we can put the ATGM Whirlwind, it’s the same for the modernized Su-25)

      I’m very glad for your primitivism and the Chinese, you can’t expect more miserable conclusions ... For dummies, including the Chinese, I’ll remind you that for the strike UAV to work, it is necessary to provide information coverage of the combat zone for real-time information exchange via secure channels and not in unmasking ways ... The smart ones will understand what it is, others don’t need .... Our capabilities in this regard (up to 100 km) allow us to block (shoot through) this positional area of ​​operations with conventional self-propelled guns, MLRS and ..... according to the signals of ordinary UAVs for target designation, but we don’t even have such systems yet ... We have suicide heroes spotters with binoculars. So, the drone UAVs are not yet available to us and are not needed ... Clearly, comrade .....

        All this is true, BUT in a war against barmaley they cannot even get in the way of a flying drone, which CAM using its surveillance means (which, say, the Global Hawk drone does not compare with our rook, which does not even have a thermal imager, which is why in Chechnya due to bad weather, a lot of guys died who could not be covered by rooks due to rain or fog) so the drone doesn’t need your suicide bomber with binoculars - he has a thermal imager that even detects people in the forest (oh, like in green It would be useful to Chechnya, otherwise they could even buy matrixes for thermal imagers from the French on the T-90) and then attack them (ours seem to be trying to make shock drones, they even bought something from Israel, but the series hasn’t reached the point yet) by the way in Georgia, in 5 days our people lost 6 Su-25, if instead of rooks there would be drones, there would be at least a few widows (or you and my leadership don’t care? They say the women still give birth)

        Armed conflict in South Ossetia (2008)
        During the conflict, the Su-25 was actively used by the Russian Air Force and the Georgian Air Force. In the war, the Su-25SM was used, but since there was no EW system on these aircraft, they often came under enemy fire. The obsolete sighting system does not allow the aircraft to work in bad weather conditions, as well as use X-25/29 missiles at night, most of the attack aircraft use NAR and air bombs. [30] The Russian Air Force lost 6 attack aircraft during the Five Day War (two Su-25BMs, three Su-25SMs, one Su-25Ks), including 3 were shot down in sorties and another 3 returned to airfields with military damage and were later decommissioned [31 ]. At various times, the South Ossetian and Russian parties announced the destruction of a number of Georgian aircraft

      at the moment, do not compare any UAV with weapons and rook functionality.

        The MQ-9 Reaper has a large flight altitude (even tori cannot get it) can fly for exactly one day, (upgraded version for more than 30 hours), performing both reconnaissance and striking with precision bombs against targets identified by it itself

          only weapons are 5 times smaller, more expensive and more difficult on these UAVs.
          and the infantry will not be covered, and the column will not really be combed out.

            UAV at the beginning of its development, which is very rapidly. Let now the UAV's efficiency is lower, but in the future 5-7 years they will leave attack aircraft far behind. That is, we cling to the outdated concept of support for troops over the battlefield.

      UAVs work under a specific order. The goal is static, the size of a house. How can they support the advancing or defending your thermal imagers?
      Moreover, looking at the US Air Force, there we will find vehicles even older, but they have a completely different tactic. So maybe not everything can be solved with one UAV?

        The Americans have a UAV operator operating from a laptop right in the upcoming ranger squad, that is, a drone hovering with Ptur Helfire is always at the service of this squad (it’s enough for the operator to see the image from the thermal imager of the soaring Predator on the monitor screen, just select the target, be it a tank or an action truck how the predecessor destroys it with the Helfire missile (the same on strike Apaches) from a height unattainable not only for MANPADS, but even for Tunguska air defense missile systems (however, against which this UAV was created) notice the Americans in Syria and Iraq have been trying to fight terrorists for much longer (I agree that it’s not always successful) but we must give them their due, they don’t lose either planes or pilots, and our losses, taking into account that we’re fighting not with the country, but with a bunch of barmel men without military air defense are already going through the roof, a lot of aircraft are already lost (and these are ours guys) so I repeat the Chinese are right - it’s better to stamp a bunch of shock drones (instead of almost useless, they only perform visual control) and let them destroy enemies with impunity, in addition, it would be nice to attach various satellite navigation sensors and laser target indicators to drones so that they can correct artillery fire (for example, aiming Krasnopol shells, it is proved that 1 Krasnopol replaces more than 100 conventional shells if the fire is fired, for example according to DotA, the quo of conventional unguided landmines is up to 150 meters, so it’s better to shoot right away for sure) So the future lies in contactless wars, all kinds of robots and other cyber monsters (I won’t be surprised that the 6th generation fighter will be unmanned and controlled by artificial intelligence, people only limit the possibilities cars, because it can’t withstand heavy overloads) and our Su-25s only show that we are all fighting as in the Great Patriotic War, not even moving forward, it was the same with the defense of Sevastopol in the Crimea when our soldiers with smoothbore guns swore because the British there were already rifled long-range (and more accurate) rifles and)

      And you thought what kind of communication channels are needed to control drones (noise immunity, bandwidth Mbit / s, etc.?). the Americans and the Chinese can technically, we don’t. Here to wash the dibs is yes, but the control channel is not, not ours. And this is not sarcasm (unfortunately). Therefore, the Rooks will fly with our pilots ... and someone will buy yachts for 600 million euros.

          The R-95Sh engine (and later R-195) is not a R-13 scrap, but a new development based on it, with borrowing the dimensions of the gas generator for the required power. And the R-95Sh and R-195 are not deprived of the possibility of installing an afterburner (this is an option with the addition of the letter "F").
          And who needs the adaptation of a turbojet engine "for different fuels" if the airfields have a standard fuel supply based on kerosene. This is a problem for piston engines due to the ignition phase.
