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.

Two days ago, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed several ammo depots of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in the city of Idlib. The airstrikes preventing the terrorists group from launching a drone attack. Pro-government activists said that the upcoming days will witness similar aerial operations.

      You’re right. They’re not going to soften Idlib’s Jihadi defenses.

      THEY’RE GOING TO OBLITERATE THEM!!!

    I think from the recent antics by the US and Israel, war is coming…Palestine next maybe, but Hezbollah / Lebanon and Iran are on the imminent list as well in The ME….. elsewhere, we know a few.

    I have a bad feeling, that a serious war is coming. My view only.

      Yes they will keep pushing until they get the war they so desperately want.

    Fucking ZIONISTS lately they are too curious about Russian equipment with their nasty Spy Satellite on Crimea, now Hmeimim base. Hmmm.!?!

    • Sinbad2

      It’s their nature to spy, the greatest spy of all Sidney Reilly(Rosenblum) was a jew.

      They are an infestation and the juice are very good at acting like people.

  • Barba_Papa

    This looks promising. The Russians are not going to deploy close air support aircraft to Syria just to bomb Al Nusra supply dumps.
