RUSSIA REINFORCES ITS AIR GROUP IN SYRIA WITH SU-25 WARPLANES

The Su-25 Grach is a single-seat, twin-engine, close air support warplane developed in the USSR by Sukhoi. The warplane’s latest upgrade, the Su-25sm3, is equipped with the advanced tactical EW suite Vitebsk-25, the SOLT-25 day\night electro-optical targeting system, a new encrypted communications system and an updated navigation system.

This type of warplanes was deployed the Hmeimim airbase several times since 2015 to provide the SAA with close air support during its battles against ISIS and other radical groups throughout Syria.

The redeployment of the Su-25 suggests that the Russian Aerospace Forces are about to step up their operations in Syria, likely against the remaining militants in the governorate of Idlib.
