Su-25, the ultimate warrior, is terrorizing targets from above; Ukrainians find it difficult to put down the jet. Another Sukhoi Su-25 was able to safely return to the base despite damage from Ukrainian manpads. Pilot surrounded by heavy armored airframe and armored fuel tanks, protective, bathtub-style cockpit. ‘Frogfoot’ has 10 wing pylons to carry a variety of missiles, as well as silent and laser-guided bombs. Unnecessary control schemes increase the likelihood of a hit and Su-25 survives some bad hits.
