The Sukhoi Su-25 Grach Russian Frogfoot is a single-seat, twin-engine jet aircraft developed in the Soviet Union by Sukhoi. It was designed to provide close air support for the Soviet Ground Forces. The first prototype made its maiden flight on 22 February 1975. After testing, the aircraft went into series production in 1978 at Tbilisi in the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. Primary Role: Close Air Support Aircraft.
In 1999 Russia decided to upgrade their aging Su-25 aircraft with actual work beginning in 2001. The first of the upgraded aircraft designated Su-25SM (Stroyevoy Modernizirovannyi) Grach (Rook) flew on March 3, 2002 with the first six modernized aircraft entering service with the Russian Air Force in December 2006. The idea behind the modernization was to expand the life of the Su-25, make it All-Weather capable, more lethal and reduce operating and maintenance cost. Increased ordnance loads and a wider selection were also added.
Su-25K Frogfoot 9013 c/n 25508109013 was delivered to the Czechoslovak PeopleÆs Army in 1987. In 1992 while with the 30 BLP (30th Combat Air Regiment) at Zatec Airbase it received a very colorful paint scheme. Since the Su-25 is referred to as a tank buster this aircraftÆs tail had a very vivid image of a frog destroying a tank. This art work made this particular aircraft the most popular for photographers. The aircraft is on display in the Vyskov Museum.
