Su-25SM attack aircraft to be equipped with modern protection

The Su-25SM attack aircraft are planned to be equipped with advanced protection to stand guided missiles.

Modernisation will include passive jamming device intended to protect aircraft and helicopters from guided missiles by jamming their guidance systems and actuation mechanisms in the optical and radio ranges of electromagnetic waves. The device can operate as on-board or autonomous system.

The Su-25SM attack aircraft is designed to eliminate small-sized mobile and fixed ground objects, as well as low-speed air targets. The Su-25SM is capable to hit two targets within one firing and carryout bombing at night in difficult weather conditions. The electronic warfare system allows to conduct radio technical reconnaissance, warns the pilot about the threat, aims at the enemy following the radar radiation and sets up jamming.
