The 33 is getting some love!


#21

Gotta be close now…


#22

Don’t those antennae thingys fold down for normal carrier ops? Super excited about the Su-33 improvements…yas…!

Nevermind…read the rest of the thread…


#23

I really want the Su-25UTG…


#24

I want the hypothetical one that’s essentially an Su-39 with a tail hook. A flimsy Russkie A-6 loaded down with Kh-31s or 35s does wonderful things for scenario design.


#25

I can get behind this. :thumbsup:


#26

This is needed for this

Another step closer


#27

I am really excited for the PFM and the carrier landings being more difficult. Right now it feels like easy mo…

(I think I am the smoke plume to starboard, and my chair is the one to port…)


#28

Yeah. Thats the one we want :slight_smile:

Su-25TM (Su-39)

A second-generation Su-25T, the Su-25TM (also designated Su-39), has been developed with improved navigation and attack systems, and better survivability. While retaining the built-in Shkval of Su-25T, it may carry Kopyo (rus. “Spear”) radar in the container under fuselage, which is used for engaging air targets (with RVV-AE/R-77 missiles) as well as ships (with Kh-31 and Kh-35 antiship missiles). The Russian Air Force has received 8 aircraft as of 2008.[76] Some of the improved avionics systems designed for T and TM variants have been included in the Su-25SM, an interim upgrade of the operational Russian Air Force Su-25, for improved survivability and combat capability.[15] The Su-25TM, as an all-inclusive upgrade programme has been replaced with the “affordable” Su-25SM programme.

I should note I don’t actually want to fly the frog. I’m looking to increase the diversity of my bird’s diet.

#31

Is this with new updates applied to it?


#32

The video is new today so I believe so,I see the wings folding at end…I think this’s a New Feature?


#33

It’s recorded by one of the ED team so it surely is the new flight model. Also noticable during the landing which is much different from the current flight model.


#34

The wings have folded since at least 2003.


#35

I noticed as well the different landing dynamics.


#36

Woot…! Now I wonder how long it will be before that footage ends up on a news channel where they think it is real footage…LOL…


#37

You always have had a thing for trainers…


#38

If they gave it the full dcs treatment, day one purchase for me. Love to hunt me some overhyped turkey that @near_blind may be flying :yum:


#39

You’re on.

It’s that CFII in me wanting to be of some use (I haven’t actually taught anyone to fly in 20 years despite retaining the ratings…)…
