Su-25 Frogfoot – Warbird Wednesday Episode #104

Su-25 Frogfoot - Warbird Wednesday Episode #104, soviet union airplane, airfare, palm springs air museum, Ukraine

Welcome to Warbird Wednesday! Today, we are visiting an aircraft currently being used by both sides in the conflict in Ukraine, the Su-25 Frogfoot. The Su-25 is a close air support aircraft developed by the Soviet Union and was first introduced in 1978. This twin-engine, subsonic aircraft is very heavy, tough, easy to operate, can get down low and can turn really well. This Sukhoi aircraft has seen a ton of conflict from the Soviet-Afghan war, Iran-Iraq war and Russo-Georgian War and will most likely remain in service for a very long time.
