This Friday (31) Russian Defense Ministry released a video of the exercises of pilots of ground attack aircraft Su-25SM.

Several fragments were recorded from the cabin of the aircraft that are deployed at the Russian military base in Kant, Kyrgyzstan.

As part of training, the Su-25SM fired S-8 missiles and rockets at a conventional enemy.

The attack was carried out when the planes were at altitudes of up to 2,500 meters and flying at a speed of 750 km / h.

Due to their strong armor and general resistance, the Su-25SM ground attack planes were called “flying tanks”. Its main task is to provide air support to ground forces, eliminating important enemy targets on the battlefield.
