The legendary Soviet Su-25 attack aircraft will appear in War Thunder — the teaser of the update “The Age of Drones” under the “Blood Type” has been released


Update “The Age of Drones” for War Thunder will add the legendary Soviet attack aircraft to the game Su-25 (known as “Rook”) is one of the symbols of the Afghan war. It was on its fields in 1980 that the first prototypes of the Su-25 were tested, and the first serial Rooks went there. The trailer, presenting the aircraft to the song “Blood Type”, also recalls the events of that war.

Gaijin Entertainment notes that the Su-25 is an easy-to-manufacture and maintain jet front-line attack aircraft that provides close support to the ground forces on operational calls and can operate even from poorly prepared airfields. The Su-25 is equipped with a 30-mm rapid-fire cannon, a ballistic computer makes it possible to very effectively drop unguided weapons from low and medium altitudes, plus there is also a solid arsenal of guided air-to-surface missiles.

The Grach pilot is in an armored capsule made of steel and titanium armor, the front part of the canopy glazing is also armored, fuel tanks are partially armored, which allows the Su-25 to survive the line from a heavy machine gun into the cockpit area, and in some cases even hits by larger aircraft and anti-aircraft shells or shrapnel. During the Afghan war, Su-25s made more than 60,000 sorties, while only 36 aircraft were lost, and in most cases the pilot survived.


A cover for the song “Blood Type” was recorded by the Baltic Symphony Orchestra and the choir at the Lendok studio exclusively for War Thunder in honor of the double anniversary – in 2022 Viktor Tsoi turned 60 and the Kino group turned 40. Vocalist – musician, journalist and game designer Petr Salnikov.

The Su-25 is in service in more than 20 countries around the world – from Azerbaijan to Ethiopia, and War Thunder will feature not only the original Soviet version of the vehicle, but also the export model of the Su-25K.

More about the Su-25 and other new content in the update look at the official website of the game.
