How many Su 25 are curently in VVS service now and how many in reserve?
Its a big mistake not to restart Su 25 production as it has proved itself extremelly effective and useful,no other plane currently in existence that can replace the Su25 Shturmovic flying tank close air support aircraft or its close air support capabilities,its ability to operate from very small airfields,extremelly good manuverability,ease of mantenance and very heavy amror and firepower make it the the best close support aircraft in the world and its much faster than the A10 and Su 25 can even go slightly faster than mach 1 when it has no ordinance on the wings.
Do the VVS generals think the Su 34 can replace it because its a long range tactical strike fighter bomber made to make precision attacks on various high value targets same role as the Su24 but not suited for close air support to same extent as Su 25
What is being developed to replace the Su25 and why cant production of Su 25 be restarted?

Congratulations on the most vague, broad statement ever in the History of MP.net. We are super glad that you are "curious".
You seem to have missed his post from yesterday
