    [quote=Scar79;3426456]Maybe it's just a rumors, but some people believe that is true. Don't know. BTW, on the last MAKS'07 Ka-52 was exposed with the unknown containers and nobody can tell(including guys from Kamov exposition) for sure what is that - Ataka Khrizantema or Hermes.





    Another advertising trick about "great advantages of depleted uranium". In soviet/russian rounds we're using alloys based on tungsten, which does their job as good as DU rounds. And we already have the "Kerner" 30mm armor-piercing round which is based on tungsten alloy and compatible with GSh-30 and 2A42.[/quote

    This containers are to big for Vikhr, Ataka or Khrizantema missiles. They could be Hermes or Pantsir missiles.

    The Hermes and pantsir share a similar configuration and are designed by the same company. BTW, the Hermes is still on the website of the manufacturer www.kbptula.ru

    Some people say it's maybe a mockup for the Hermes-A.

    A-10s have been brought down by all sorts of weapons including Strelas.
    Dear Members,

    No A-10As have been brought down by the SA-7 or by SA-7s produced by other nations with modifications. The main antiair threat that the A-10As feared in Desert Storm was the French provided ROLAND antiaircraft missile batteries and the SA-14/Igla-1. And even this last missile usually damaged the A-10A but not to where it could not recover base. The real killer was the ROLAND battery they relocated south of Basra they were unaware of. A ROLAND hit was a death sentence.

    Jack E. Hammond

    Iraq successfully used Igla-1s during Desert Storm in 1991, where they were responsible for the shoot-down of an AC-130H on January 31; a F-16 on February 27; a UH-60 helicopter on February 27; (according to Russian sources) four of the five AV-8B Harriers lost on January 28 and February 9, 23, 25, and 27; and at least one Tornado on January 18. It is possible that more aircraft among those lost in the operations were downed by Igla-1 missiles. The last known Igla kill outside Russia was a US F-16C Block 40, shot down on May 2, 1999, over Kosovo. It is not sure which version (Igla or Igla-1) was used in this engagement. However, it is worth noting that the F-16 went down despite being equipped with the AN/ALE-40 countermeasures dispenser.

With a proper approach and dive profile it can probably handle Hawk/Kub/Buk type Sam batteries when several missiles are fired at once.

    Didn't Georgians claim their Su-25 can not carry Kh-58 missiles in incident last year, when the missile of that type fall in Georgia? This photo from Peru prove, that standard Su-25 could use them.

    no, they cannot. Those Peruvian Su-25UBs received an upgrade that some Belorussian Su-25s underwent, which added some equipment to use the Kh-58 and a extra display in the rear seaters cockpit.

    Yes, indeed. They were equipped with the RHWS 150L and the so-called pod you see in the photos, which is part of the Kh58 missile fire control system, as well as a IM-3M-14 multi-function display for WSO duties in the back seat. They were recently upgraded with VOR/ILS and GPS/INS nav systems compatible with Western standards as well.

    Just for the record: Peruvian "Frogfoots" are original Soviet -A and -UB models, they belong to the final batches built in the Soviet Union. There's a common misconception: that our Su25s are downgraded export -K and -UBK models. That's not the case. Just in case anyone is wondering
