Assault aviation of the Southern Military District receives modernized Su-25M3
The assault aviation of the Southern Military District was replenished with the latest deeply modernized Su-25SM3, which flew from the manufacturer to a permanent base.
The aircraft arrived at the aviation unit of the 4th Army of the Air Force and Air Defence in the Stavropol Territory, having covered more than 800 km.
The improved Su-25SM3 attack aircraft, using an upgraded guidance system, can launch missiles or drop an aerial bomb, even being at a considerable distance from a given target or because of clouds. All a combat pilot needs is the exact coordinates of the object.
Representatives of the engineering and technical services of the aviation unit checked the readiness of all units and mechanisms of the Su-25SM3 for operation in the specified modes.
Since the beginning of this year, 8 helicopters and 2 aircraft have already entered the 4th Army of the Air Force and Air Defence of the Southern Military District.
