          It may happen that these 40-year-old A-10s were re-released in 2001. By the way, in its design, a significant proportion of composites, and their service life is much longer than that of air alloys.

            The keyword "may" is more likely to be 40 years old.
            "By the way, there is a significant proportion of composites in its design" - the load-bearing power parts of the airframe are metal. So the advertising of flying scrap metal did not pass).

          A-10 Thunderbolt 2 are being upgraded to A-10C, the wings are being replaced, new equipment is being installed, the service life is extended to 2028. But there is a possibility that the modernization process will be stopped and all the machines will be written off to the storage base.

      This form is more practical. The engines are covered behind the tail from the bottom-bottom, which does not allow their radiation to be captured by the IKGSN MANPADS. Highly located cabin for a better forward-down view. Not handsome of course, but more effective than the Su-25. To understand this, you should calculate the number of lost vehicles by the number of sorties. For example, in Iraq in 1991. lost 7 vehicles having completed about 8100 sorties. In 2008, 3 Su-25s were lost in Ossetia despite the fact that the total number of sorties was about 600, of which 70 made Tu-22s. It is not difficult to calculate that the Su-25 was lost ten times more often.

        Your comparison, I believe, is not entirely correct, since the working conditions of the attack aircraft were different - in Iraq, the Kyrgyz Republic demolished without hesitation everything that seemed suspiciously dangerous with regard to aircraft. This was not the case in Ossetia; mistakes were made in assessing the capabilities of Georgian air defense. Further into the details does not make sense.

          The main losses in both Iraq and Ossetia attack aircraft were from military air defense, namely MANPADS, MZA, Osa-type air defense systems which could not be carried out with cruise missiles. And the Su-25 and A-10 worked in the same conditions. If this does not suit you, then compare across Afghanistan. A-10s have been operating in Afghanistan since 2001. To date, not a single aircraft has been lost. Su-25 appeared in the sky of Afghanistan in 1981. and to 1989. lost 36 cars. There is a difference?

            Well, you just compared, many "Stingers" were deployed to Afghanistan by the Americans, at that time it was a new weapon, and they were just starting to fight with it.
            Today, when the Americans are fighting in Afghanistan, we do not supply the Taliban with Strela-2M, but we could. But we're not as mean as they are.

              Losses of the Su-25 from MANPADS were certainly large, but the MZA was shot down a lot. DShKM and PGI are the main enemies of the Su-25. The Americans did not lose a single A-10.

        incorrect events for comparison, because in Iraq, during air raids, the air defense was "jammed and blinded", and in 2008 the Rooks flew out, especially at the beginning (in fact, when they lost Sushki and Tu-22R), when the electronic warfare did not work AT ALL due to negligence (or else because of what), so that they flew like birds into the birdcatcher's net.

    Look at the photos of amers from Afghanistan and compare with our photos from the times of Afghanistan too. How our guys were dressed and how the Americans were dressed. Our rear service has always been economical at the expense of soldiers.

    A-10s have been operating in Afghanistan since 2001. To date, not a single aircraft has been lost. Su-25 appeared in the sky of Afghanistan in 1981. and to 1989. lost 36 cars. There is a difference?
