During the fighting in the Donbass, the Ukrainian Air Force lost 5 Su-25 attack aircraft, by the end of the summer of 2014 flights aviation have stopped. The last loss was the board of the Su-25M1 08 near Starobeshevo.
For a conflict of this scale, with a fairly large theater, the number of Su-25 was very small. Total 14 drill boards.
5 losses greatly reduced the capabilities of 299-th Brta and forced the command to climb into the reserves.
Where does Ukraine have reserves from? from the USSR. Huge groundwork, a large number of aircraft. On storage aircraft look not very fresh, misleading people. In fact, most of these aircraft are subject to recovery (at the expense of TECH or ARZ).
It's like with tanks in Kharkov. At the "cemetery" there are only buildings, and full-fledged combat-ready MBTs come out.
Such storage here ...
