Peruvian Air Force receives third Su-25 attack aircraft modernized by Russia


The Peruvian Air Force received the third Su-25 attack aircraft, which was repaired and modernized as part of a joint project between the Peruvian state-owned company SEMAN and Rosoboronexport. According to the command of the Peruvian Air Force, the Su-25UB arrived at the air base after passing the appropriate tests. The aircraft will be part of the 11 air group located at the El Pato airbase in Talara in northwestern Peru.

According to the publication, a total of ten Su-25 attack aircraft (6 Su-25K and 4 Su-25UB) will be restored and modernized in the framework of the agreement concluded at the end of the 2014 year between Russia and Peru. In total, the country's Air Force is armed with 18 aircraft of this type, still of Soviet assembly, acquired in the middle of the 90's in Belarus and partially modernized there.

The Russian side, in addition to repair and modernization of aircraft within the framework of the agreement, supplies brake parachutes, spare parts and technical documentation, as well as carries out major repairs of 20 R-95Sh engines.

The first Su-25K aircraft was returned to service in August 2018, the second, Su-25UB - in mid-March 2019. A fourth aircraft is expected to be delivered in the coming weeks.

It should be noted that in addition to the Su-25, the Peruvian Air Force has MiG-29 fighters of various modifications, Mi-24 / Mi-35, Mi-8 / Mi-17 helicopters.

    Interestingly, they are being driven to Russia or production has been launched there. I think if it had been deployed there it would have been cheaper, and the Peruvians felt confident in the future, maybe they bought something else from us. Service is the weak point of our defense industry.

        Does Venezuela have ARZs capable of repairing the Su-25?

          In Venezuela, there are (appeared) competent people who are able to make an aggregate replacement and a lot of space where this can be done. hi

            This is still a bit wrong. These are ordinary technicians, capable of replacing equipment, units, maybe engines, which a TEC of any regiment is capable of. AND ремонт, this is the prerogative of specialized enterprises and it consists not only in simple replacement of units, but also in checking and evaluating the condition of the airframe, engines, equipment ... with almost complete disassembly of the aircraft. hi

    in places, like most of the world military-industrial complex.
    there, anti-aircraft guns were brought to Turkey by the moment.

      anti-aircraft installations were brought to Turkey by air as much as possible.

      delivery and service are a bit different things in my opinion

        Delivery is part of the service. for example, the Migov details could go to India half a year earlier.
        This was one of the reasons why the Indians swept a moment at the tender.

    But is it somehow connected with the attempt to deliver the unfinished An-178 of the Peruvian Ministry of Internal Affairs with the deliveries of modernized Su-25s as part of a joint project of the Peruvian state-owned company SEMAN and Rosoboronexport?
    Forever we promote An. (Iran, Cuba) It’s a pity that we are distributing our Su-25s to the right and left, then to Iraq, then to Peru. We don’t have many Su-25 attack aircraft ourselves. If there were any progress on PAK SHA. Will we fight? Is that the latest MiG-35S will replace the Su-25.

      , In general, there has been a tendency in the world to abandon narrow specialization in aviation, helicopter aviation and drones will most likely now provide direct support to the troops, and suppression of command centers, striking at warehouses, etc. - this is the task of the Su-57, Su-35, etc. They rely on the same in the United States and Israel (besides us today they are the most warring armies, no matter how they belong to them).

        We want to replace the Su-24 and Su-25 with the Su-34 over time, but I think it’s more appropriate to replace the Su-25 then with the Promising Kamov combat helicopter. It will be comparable in terms of the main performance characteristics with the Su-25 and, moreover, able to freeze if necessary.

      I apologize. Far from aviation, but my opinion is that the SU-25 is a weapon and technology of the 20th century. In the conditions of modern local conflicts, he has not shown himself anywhere and has no chance.
      The war in South Ossetia and Georgia clearly showed this. Losses in aviation from the Russian Federation, namely the SU-25 suffered. After the first approaches to the attack of Georgian columns with equipment were shot down.
      Like still TU-22 M hooked.

        SU-25 is a weapon and technology of the 20th century.

        So far, they haven’t come up with anything better to directly support the troops on the battlefield. The Americans are recovering the A-10 with might and main, by the way, also weapons and technologies of the 20th century.
        In the conditions of modern local conflicts, he has not shown himself anywhere and has no chance.

        Arrived. How didn’t you? Take an interest in the opinion of professional pilots. The Su-25 proved to be excellent in Afghanistan, Syria. No wonder it is now being upgraded to the level of the Su-25SM3. A beautiful, reliable, unpretentious workhorse, time-tested. In modern warfare, tactics are important and protection systems, electronic warfare from air defense, from the same MANPADS. Syrian experience has helped to find the right tactics for the use of Su-25 and to develop means of protection against air defense.

        Like still TU-22 M hooked.

        Then there was a terrible mess and basically we shot down most of our aircraft, mistaking them for the Georgian ones. There were miscalculations, the Tu-22M generally began to engage in unusual functions not because of a good life, for which we paid. After 08.08.08 .XNUMX. a shake-up occurred in the troops.

        Is there any prospect of high-tech wars in Latin America in the near future? For fighting rebels or for cross-border conflicts will do.

    ??
    And what aviation is generally capable of showing itself in "conditions of local conflicts", where there are no normal static targets or armored vehicles divisions? Maybe the Americans did better in Afghanistan? No, it’s not. Vaughn recently in Libya had a chance to distinguish themselves from the aviation - to wet the columns on the march. Ended up shooting down a female. You can give examples of our or Israeli aviation in Syria, but both are showing themselves so-so. An unprepared flight or an attempt to hang over a target is guaranteed to end with an anti-aircraft missile. And it doesn't matter if you have su-25 or b-52 or f-35 or su-57 or a10 - problems for everyone.

    The difference between repair and modular replacement is known and not in dispute.

    ... I don't think Peru has that much money.
    All these are speculations of a private person, but I suspect that something is being done that can be done in the field by forces, as you rightly noted, of a decently equipped TEC regiment, namely an aggregate replacement. And how this is presented to a respected Customer, and even more to the media, is the responsibility of the person responsible for relations with the Customer and public relations.
