Apparently a sholder launched missile brought down an SU-25 which I find difficult to believe. Do the Russian air force not use an integrated air space mission? Chaff and flares cannot be 100% obviously but overwatch, even drones would seem to be able to provide warnings and covering fire for downed crews. That the pilot was killed by one of the militia involved is a sad indictment of the current trends but then that is a topic for another outlet. My thoughts here are for the technical side of the aircraft and systems in use use by the Russian air force. Just what did they use to bring down the SU-25?
