The Su-39 is a variant of the Su-25 ground attack jet. It is exclusively utilised by the Russian Armed Forces in ArmA 2.

Overview

  • Role:
    • Close air support
« The Su-25 (NATO designation: Frogfoot) is a single-seat twin-engine jet aircraft developed in Russia. It is able to withstand heavy enemy fire thanks to very robust armored construction and finds its key strengths in the areas of low-level maneuverability and accurate weapons delivery.
It is armed with Gsh-30-2 30mm cannon, four Kh-29 air-to-surface missile launchers, four S-8KO air-to-surface anti-armor missile platforms, and two AA-11air-to-air missile platforms. This one is used by the Russian army.

Design

The Su-39 is a simply modified variant of the baseline Su-25 plane. Unlike its parent jet, it swaps most of its unguided munitions with infrared-guided anti-tank missiles instead, which makes it more suited as a tank hunter.

Armament
Its carries the same 30 mm cannon as its parent which feeds from a 180-round belt of high-explosive (HE) shells, along with the twin R-73 AA missiles and 80 mm rocket pods. The main difference is that the FAB-250 iron bombs have been exchanged with four Ch-29 AGMs instead.

Features
Aside from carrying different weapons, the Su-39 is completely identical to its older predecessor in virtually every way, right down to fuel capacity, handling, and even max speed. As such, it shares the same strengths and weaknesses of the Su-25, but is still overall better at destroying ground vehicles thanks to its anti-tank missiles.

Crew Capacity
The Su-39 is only able to carry its pilot and cannot transport any passengers or additional crew members.

Trivia

  • The Su-39 in real-life is actually quite different to the baseline Su-25 in several ways and would not be completely identical to it.
    • Examples include using a twin-barrelled 30 mm cannon as opposed to the Su-25's single barrel. It also incorporates a completely different suite of defensive avionics along with a refurbished airframe.
