Su-25 – the famous “Grach” (“Rook” – RRT) – is the workhorse of the war in Afghanistan, and many other conflicts around the world. It positioned itself very well from the very beginning, and can perform a combat mission even after receiving up to a hundred holes. In peacetime, nearly 20 such planes collapsed in various accidents since the 1990s.

In September 2015, another Su-25 crashed in the Kuban. The first class pilot Alexey Nazarov died. Till the last moment he was driving the falling plane away from residential buildings.
