Product Picture

The Su-25 made its maiden flight in 1975. Within five years it saw its first combat in Afghanistan. The Su-25 proved to be a durable airplane during the campaign in Afghanistan. The Su-25 can be found in both a single and two seat configuration. Of the 25 countries that have used the Frogfoot, it is still operated by 19 today. With modifications and upgrades, the Frogfoot is slated to remain in service until at least 2020.

This book takes a comprehensive look at the Su-25 Frogfoot from its design and development, the different variants, ordinance, modifications, and upgrades. There is also a section in the book that covers the use of the Frogfoot in combat.

This book is clearly written with an excellent use of photographs and captions. The digital artwork is really great looking.

I highly recommend this book for Soviet aviation fans. I would like to thank Osprey Publishing and IPMS/USA for allowing me to review this book.
