5th gen fighter versus Russia's version of an A-10 used for ground attacks. This was over before it started. Still, a righteous taken down of Assad aircraft . We know that Obama would have let Assad's aircraft cross red line after red line. Trump's spanking Assad's booty.

The Russian version of the A-10 is the SU-25 Frogfoot, NOT the SU-22, you stupid ass! You want to play knowledgeable air-power dork and you don't even know what you're talking about.

You're a phony and a bullshit artist just like your hero, Trump.

The last flights before the retirement. The SU-22 was designed as a high speed, medium range, low level ground attack / recce aircraft.

Sorry, but you are wrong and I know that bothers you. Please educate yourself.

Notice the armaments are mostly ground attack weapons/bombs.

SU-22 came BEFORE the SU-25 in subsequent versions.

Armament / Mission Payload


STANDARD:
2 x 30mm Nudelman-Rikhter NR-30 cannons in leading edge wing roots.

OPTIONAL:
10 to 12 hardpoints for up to 9,000lbs of mixed ordnance including conventional drop bombs, napalm, drag chute bombs, runway-defeating bombs, TV/Laser-guided bombs, rocket pods, gun pods, air-to-surface

The Su-25 Frogfoot, known as the Grach or “Rook” by Russian pilots, is one of those aircraft that may not be at the cutting edge of technology, but still has seen widespread service around the world because it offers an effective and useful solution to the need to blast targets on the ground.

As such, its obvious stablemate is the American A-10 Thunderbolt II attack plane. But while the U.S. Air Force wants to retire the A-10 starting in 2022, the Su-25 is undergoing extensive upgrades to keep with the times.

Keep beating the dead horse. The point of the thread was that there was no competition in this air to air battle between a true fighter aircraft and something intended for ground attack.

If that was the point of the thread, why'd you bother replying to my comment? You're the Top Gun wannabe, not me.
