Some of the rockets the SU-25 carries can make short work of even heavy armor too.
In both cases the "fighter" look exactly the same. All elements on the fighter and equipment around it are in exactly the same position. It just appear like it is the same photo taken from different angles but both photos depict different situations.
The people standing on front of the plane in the first photo look way too artificial. On the other hand elements on the second pictures look very real, specially the refraction of the background in the canopy.
It may be a photoshop but in that case is a very good work.

I work with photoshop daily and my thoughts on the "J-XX" are as follows.
this picture is taken on a model in a well built environment.
the canopy glass thickness, very hard to do even on a nice modell
the floor shine
the overall clean environment (i know airplanes are built clean but not like this)
the lack of smaller details than a certain level
this on the other hand is the same model from different angel
but parts of the model environment has been duplicated to create
space to photoshop a sukhoi? into the room.
its not a good photoshop eighter.
you can se the travers in the roof is duplicated and
the wall and roof is just "moved away" from the modell plane.
they darkened the corner where the angels meet up and if you
follow the irons in the roof they wont end where they are supposed to.
a number of other things dont match up eighter.
my 50 cents......
lovely thread by the way and so many nice pictures of
my favorite war machine ever, cccp, bless its soul
Force of beauty and beauty of force
highdefenced transport vehicle "Ladoga" sry for bad english (Высокозащищеное транспортное средство "ЛАДОГА")

Airforce shadowing US aircraft carrier
Imagine that kind of armor in your face, f***ing unbelievable!
The Ladoga transport looks different from original design. Chernobyl Experience?
guys, look at the date of that KNAAPO photo.It was taken on 06.04.2007. Cant be 35BM because of air brake at least.
cant be also because of date.Or perhaps, based on the testing of 901 and 902, they decided to go back to separate dorsal airbrake?
Cant be SM modernization because of new airframes.
So, the answer is Su-30MK2 for Venezuela or Su-30MKM for Malaysia, but MKM has canards and its not 100 % clear at these photos. I think it doesnt have them. My bet is SU-30MK2
