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.
The 299th Tactical Aviation Brigade based at Nikolaev-Kulibakino has applied a digital camouflage scheme to their Su-25M1s. After aircraft losses in the Ukrainian Civil War they realized they had to upgrade the older Su-25s and by the end of 2015 14 Su-25M1s and 2 Su-25UBM1 were completed. On February 26, 2022 Su-25M1 Blue 19 piloted by Lt. Col. Zhybrov was lost along Su-25M1 Blue 30 when they attacked a pontoon bridge being built by Russian forces in the Kherson region in an effort to add a crossing for its troops and supplies.
