From Rook to Super Rook: Su-25SM3 attack aircraft


Of all the variety of aircraft in our VKS, the attack aircraft is called only one - the Su-25. The plane can hardly be attributed to the category of "handsome". Its plain appearance is striking. Because of him in NATO, the Russian (Soviet) attack aircraft was given the name "Frog Leg".


However, the appearance is not at all important for the Su-25. The main thing is his ability to defeat the enemy in manpower and military equipment, using a variety of weapons.

The program “Military Acceptance” tells about the creation of Su-25 aircraft, their combat path, about the latest modification of the Su-25SM3 attack aircraft, which is called the “Super Rook”.

From the report on TC "Star":
Well, what other plane will be able to land with a telegraph pole instead of an engine? Such a case took place in Afghanistan.


This remarkable case was told by Alexander Rutskoi, who gave an interview for the Military Acceptance program.

From the material:

And what other aircraft will save the life of the pilot after two missiles hit.


The updated Su-25SM3 aircraft completed a series of tests recently. About what this attack aircraft, modernized by Russian designers, is capable of, tells the host of the Military Acceptance:

      Rook is a legendary masterpiece of the Soviet aircraft industry and of course it is wonderful if he gets a second life!

        the legendary masterpiece of the Soviet aircraft industry

        .. and it blinded him from what was ... The principle of the Soviet military-industrial complex: "You (the military) can desire anything, but you will fly on what we (the minaviaprom) will be able to do." In general, there was no TK for this aircraft. There was a legend that the project was based on a graduation project, the leader of which was one of the leading designers of Sukhoi. For me, the layout is very similar to the German He-129 tank destroyer, the engines from the MiG-21 were attached to the edge.

      The Yankees really have a rest, because they can cut out a conventional tank for several kilometers with a high degree of probability without entering the air defense zone. Maybe Grach is not particularly inferior to the Warthog in terms of performance characteristics, and maybe even superior in some respects, only the Su-25 nomenclature of weapons does not allow pilots to work outside the zone of enemy air defense and they have to cast iron from low altitudes or launch unguided rockets again from low altitude and not long distance.

    What Su-25 is capable of can be found in the "Stars" video, and what Turkish shock UAVs are capable of from news and SAA loss reports.

    The concept of the Su-25 is long outdated and leads only to losses in technology and in pilots.

    Attack aircraft must replace shock UAVs.

    One Su-25 sat down with a pillar, but how many of them didn’t sit down, but were shot down, moreover from a relatively cheap and simple MANPADS ?!

      Why is it that from the star, in the news bulletins for the entire time they were in Syria, how much they overstated the terrogyug. Previously, they shot down, right now, no, but the Turks have much more advanced weapons than the SAA, it’s clear that they have an advantage. It will still serve, it’s too early to write it off , with modern protection and armament, it will allow for MANPADS to slip through

      Americans with a large number of UAVs are upgrading hundreds of A-10s.

      Uh, my friend, you’ll decide - either the "Su-25 Concept is long outdated" or "Attack aircraft must replace the shock UAVs." And it turns out they started for health, and ended for peace. By the way, about the “repose”, how many, according to your information, Su-25s were shot down from MANPADS?

    Obviously, those who know how to plan and analyze are not going to refuse from attack aircraft, whoever has them.
    Of course, his turn will come when there is a full replacement .....

    Well, what other plane can land with one shot engine, except for the A-10?

    I wholeheartedly for the Russian army, but this program with this host is driving me crazy, talking about super systems like there are a lot of them on our attack aircraft in Syria, and then they show the air base in Khmeimim where our planes work without these systems ,, L370 ,,. Previously, I remember the military acceptance, or it was called military affairs, they directly talked about the latest about problems, about shortcomings, now joyful and unparalleled diarrhea in the world is pouring river. The host should generally go to the heart program for love, because this person does not understand what eternal idiotic questions are talking about !!!

    Alas, this modernization has already been 10-15 or more years late ...

      at least 25 years old, in 95 made its first flight of the Su-39, it is also the Su-25TM, and at that time it was better than the current Grach, not in terms of LTX, but in terms of the ability to hit and not to enter the zone yourself defeat.

    And how much? To assess the effectiveness consider losses on sorties. In addition, the UAV can not be compared in terms of mass of weapons

    Nice plane. Morally obsolete. Well, the "Star" would lie to her fart. As they say, - "in the presence of absence", has no analogues in the world !!!! wassat
