Azerbaijan Shot Down Armenian Su-25 Using MANPAD

Azerbaijan has published a video of the destruction of the Armenian Su-25 attack aircraft.

The servicemen of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan published a video in which the Armenian Su-25 attack aircraft was destroyed, which took part in striking the forces of Armenia and the NKR army during the recent 44-day armed conflict in Karabakh.

According to video, the Armenian Air Force Su-25 attack aircraft was hit by MANPAD air defense fire from the ground – the pilot managed to eject in time and the combat aircraft left without control crashed on the mountainside, which is fully captured on video frames.

On the other hand, earlier such a case did not receive official comments from Armenia although the Armenian side announced loss of a Su-25 attack aircraft, but the video of the destruction of the latter is essentially the first.

Today it is known that Armenia really used its Su-25 attack aircraft in the mountainous regions of Karabakh, and precisely because of the elevation difference, such strikes turned out to be fruitless – the air defense means of NKR and Armenia did not have time to capture the target and attack it, as a result which is what the Air Force lost a aircraft.
