It is understood that the Su-25 is a fighter with excellent penetration performance. It relies on its superb strength to quickly insert bombs into the opponent’s heart to complete operations such as bombing and give the opponent a devastating blow. So, how does the Su-25 do this?
In order to improve the survival rate of pilots, the Soviet Union equipped the aircraft with titanium alloy bulletproof plates and bulletproof glass, which can resist the attack of machine guns and even artillery shells.
It is worth noting that the jet has a hatch that opens to the right, and is equipped with a boarding ladder and landing gear at the nose and fuselage, respectively.
From the perspective of aerodynamic layout design, the Su-25 has an upper wing structure, and its trailing edge is very straight, which significantly enhances low-speed flight performance.
Due to the use of the R195 engine, the fastest cruising speed of the Su-25 can reach Mach 0.85. It is reported that the engine comes from the Tumans Machine Design Bureau, and the thrust can reach more than 44.18 kN.
To reduce damage to the attack, technicians generally place bulletproof steel plates between the two engines, enhancing defense resistance.
It is worth noting that the Su-25’s engine can carry different types of fuel and can also carry auxiliary fuel tanks, which is more advantageous when performing field operations.
The aircraft has a huge wingspan area and can rely on the ten hanging points above to carry various weapons, equipment, and even people.
To meet different tasks, the Su-25 is designed with four types of pods, equipped with ammunition separately, and the attack power is indeed amazing.
In terms of weapon configuration, the Su-25 has different rockets, such as the S8. Each ammunition has different compositions and powers and is prepared for various combat missions.
To sum up, the Su-25 has advantages in thrust and other aspects, and its mobility and external adaptability are more prominent. It is rare attack equipment.
