Default Su-25 tailhook

We have the carrier playground of the Marianas coming out and the super carrier module with an upgraded Kuznetsov but only one aircraft to fly from it that can't do much in the way of air to ground. I think it is extremely unlikely but it would be great if we could get the Su-25 upgraded to the carrier variant. I would gladly pay for it.

I recognize though that the biggest problem is it seem the carrier version was just a trainer and I don't know if it could carry any weapons. But if it was possible it would be nice to have Su-33 escorts for it so it can make attacks on Anderson field.

Su-25UTG was unarmed trainer, without any weapon, with arresting hook.
And Su-25 overall, with it's tiny range and no air refueling wouldn't be useful as carrier aircraft.

A better option would be fleshing out the 33's weapons to include the full list, rather than developing a half-baked naval Frog.

Agree on the limited Russian carrier-launched air to ground capabilities in the current state of DCS. Needs to be expanded.



Half-baked naval frog. THAT had me cracking up! Thanks for that.
Did a quick search and found this gem.

Let me guess?? You saw the erroneous list of A/G stuff listed on Su33 Wikipedia ?


Current Su33 is fine as as is. Wikipedia is misleading because it only applies to recent modernized variation perhaps.

Just make a J-15/liaoning... Its better for that map anyway. Kuzenekow isn't sailing halfway around the world to drop bombs on guam

From what I read the UTG could carry weapons and the UB from which it was derived was used as weapons trainer and the UTG did deploy on the Kuz. I'm not saying its some great carrier aircraft.

I would think a Frog would make a terrible carrier aircraft with those high, narrow gear. It's a bit unstable on solid ground, much less on a heaving ship.

@Kev2Go
Yes, as in ''expand and fill out and/or update'' what's hard to understand? Irrelevant whether it's newer or older. An even better idea would be a MiG-29K that has seen much wider service than the semi-prototype 33, but that's pretty improbable.
