The Su-25 Frogfoot
The Soviet Union was facing a problem in the 1970s. The United States was deploying the A-10 Thunderbolt, which was designed to carry out close-air-support missions, which could decimate the large tank formations that the Soviets were counting on to smash NATO. They needed something similar to inflict similar losses on NATO forces. Their answer was the Su-25, which they call Grach, but which may be better known as Frogfoot. If a war is in the news, more often than not, the Frogfoot is involved.
