“The Su-25 party (three cars) arrived in Iraqi territory in accordance with the contract signed with the Russian side,” said at-Tamimi.

The details of the transaction is not reported.

“The stormtroopers will be commissioned soon. This will give the Iraqi army an additional advantage in the fight against terrorist groups, including the Daesh (“Islamic State”), ”he added.

According to TASS, this is not the first batch of attack aircraft, supplied by the Russian side to the Iraqi military during the current conflict.

The agency’s reference: “Su-25 is a Russian attack aircraft designed to provide round-the-clock support to ground units in direct line of sight, as well as to destroy targets with given coordinates in any weather conditions.”

      Just Americans do not sell the A-10 to anyone, even Israel, and attack aircraft are needed. And the last A-10s were released back in the 80s.

          The work has been appreciated since the days of Afghanistan! Doesn't need big advertising. No other attack aircraft in the world has such a layout, and such an armored capsule! Here the Rooks flew!

          exactly what "flying tank" was?


          American A-10 "thunderbolt", "warthog" (warthog), he is tenacious, bastard, although it looks dumb, with minimal armor. Papuans gouge only on the way, in the presence of air defense - piss on kerosene, works only as a vulture. In comparison with the SU-25, it is quite, but by no means better. It also flies, since 2015 there are several in estonia to intimidate "aggressive Russians". Wiping for the SU-34 chassis at this time, in short. Strategists are planning to replace only the F-35A (they are fuckers!), They are not going to create anything else, the rest of the loot was spent on cutting, well, that's wonderful. Such is the reference.

        A-10 was upgraded to version A-10C. The interesting thing is that a total of 715 A-10s were produced, and now the United States has 294 aircraft in service. Where did the rest of the planes go? In reserve?

          The A-10 stands in neat rows at AMARCe in Arizona, storage base next to Davis-Montan AFB. The base itself is the "home" for the A-10. They even brought the T-55 from Iraq there, as a keepsake.
          In general, there are only two tanks: A-10 and Su-25, both of which have no replacement yet.

      And there is no choice, the American A-10 "Wardog" is no longer being produced, and the US is not going to sell its stocks yet, despite the fact that for 3 years there has been talk of an early write-off of the A-10.

      Much more important is whether SVP-24 Hephaestus is there.

      Of course, I understand that there is no way for the Americans to rip off our system, because the first ones have it counted ONLY for our bombs, that is, "square to round - invisible." And secondly - tied to GLONASS. They all can’t get rid of our engines and helicopters there.

      Well, of course, they will do something similar for the okhulyard, but only THEIR manufacturers of "gadgets" to taxi their bombs will be "very offended." And everyone will do so that such a system is not developed

        Two years ago there was news of a fast delivery of 10 Su-25s, as the Yankees promised to consider deliveries of the F-16, only 15 months after the date of the application. Either the application was submitted at the wrong time, or it was not correctly executed, but the SGA is in no hurry to "throw something in," except for the pig

      Yes, Iraq buys everything from them there whole hodgepodge:

      The Iraqi Air Force suffered heavy casualties during Operation Desert Storm in 1991, but it remains a serious force, although aircraft are prohibited from flying outside the zone established by the Allies for the anti-Iraq coalition. It is believed that the most powerful and efficient aircraft of the Iraqi Air Force remains the F1EQ Mirage fighter. The MiG-21, MiG-25 and MiG-29 aircraft are also in service (it is believed that only 8 MiG-29 aircraft survived the Desert Storm), the number of which is unknown. There is also army aviation in Iraq, the basis of which is about 110 helicopters, including combat Mi-24s.
      The main types in service
      Fighters and attack aircraft:
      Chengdu F-7, Mirage F1, MiG-21,
      MiG-23, MiG-25, MiG-29, Su-22, Su-25. Transport Aviation: An-12, An-24,
      An-26, IL-76.
      TCB: L-29, L-39, Tukano, AS-202 Bravo, Zlin Z326. Helicopters: SA-330, Bell 214, MD-500, Mi-6, Mi-8, Mi-17, Gazelle, Mi-24, Aluet III.

      Well, their losses are mostly justified.

      Sesna with the Mavericks shot down. The Iranian Su-25 (the first Rooks delivered by Iran - 2 cars and 2 UB, which they later took away) - crashed in a combat mission, or crashed, or a technical malfunction (the cars are still Iraqi overflights, without normal service), or a pilot. Mi-35 are all lost in battle, the recent Mi-35 was shot at by the MZA, but it was pulled and dropped already at the location of the Iraqi army.

      But in vain, ironic, the A-10 has a not very familiar layout, but as a ground attack aircraft it is quite. Now there are not many of them in the ranks, due to age, that’s not often flickered.
