Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) has stopped production of Su-25 ground attack aircraft.

Russia stopped mass production of Su-25 ground attack aircraft, Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov said on 7 February. The light attack aircraft based on Yak-130 will submit a potential replacement for the Su-25 series.

The new aircraft will be equipped with an advanced radar, feature elements of stealth technology and also be able to use short runways. It will replace the modernised Su-25SM.
