    It seems to me that in future there will be more work for the Su-25. Large command posts and weapons depots were bombed, now militants are distributing from one large to several medium ones, and dozens of jeeps are not put in a heap. And in general, they try not to shine in large groups and move mainly at night.
    Of course, VKS planes are unlikely to be chasing after every jeep, but nevertheless the task will become more complicated.

      Why only su 25? To advertise weapons, Su 34 should work. Then, exactly, the contracts will go.

          It was precisely noticed: we, the inhabitants, should be closer to the economic efficiency of the resources used and combat effectiveness than the presence of new contracts for old weapons.

            We, the inhabitants of Russia should be closer to security !!!
            There, our military provides us with a peaceful sleep.
            People risk their lives ensuring our safety.

          We will win this war for Syria - we will have both contracts and field development and a union state with the Russian Navy and VKS bases.

            So, write yourself, it’s being developed. And it can be three and five years or more, until the moment of commissioning. And it is not known how it will show itself in a combat, real situation. So it is not yet in sight. hi
