How much SU-25's does Iran have ?

Doesn't anyone think Iran got some tech off SU 25 for shafaq? They are pretty much in same category, and Iran might have wanted them for size/weight comparisons?

I don't think so, they SU-25 is a "flying tank" and was especially designed for ground attack and air support.

7 Su-25K/UBK impounded from Iraq. 6 Su-25T/UBT purchased from Russia.

Iran now owns 13 Su-25s and is considering further acquisitions of the type.

IRAN BOLSTERS SU-25 FLEET

During April's 'Great Prophet' exercise, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Air Force (IRGCAF) for the second time presented publicly its Sukhoi Su-25 strike fighters, including the six additional aircraft, which have only just been revealed.

The news makes sense. they'll probably get more of these "Tank-Busters". There are only two countries producing "Flying Tanks", The US (A-10 ) and Russia (SU-25). Contrary to the A-10, the SU-25 can fly supersonic and has a great maneuverability

This just came in:

Two IRGC Su-25's engaged an unarmed US drone over international waters in the Persian Gulf last Thursday.

More detail here:

Kaman,

Not so, the Su-25 is purely subsonic. It is faster than the A-10 in a dead sprint and have its advantages but so too does the A-10. The two aircraft were developed for a similar role/niche but they are very different as well.

You are right, however the indicated performance refer to level flight performance (950 KmPH= Mach0,75), I believe the aircraft reaches speeds beyond mach 1 when engaged in steep dive (dive recovery, watch the video). In any case the airframe will not pose the kind of challenges posed by the A-10 when reaching supersonic speeds.
The problem is not reaching supersonic speeds but rather to have an airframe capable of going supersonic. For instance the A6M2 Zero’s wings would snap into pieces whenever they went supersonic and the lightning’s (P-38) vertical commands (elevons) would freeze taking the aircraft into a fatal dive.

Kaman,

Not likely, the Su-25's straight wings make it nearly impossible for it to ever reach supersonic speeds regardless of level flight or in a dive. Very few straight-wing supersonic aircraft have ever been built (the X-1 family of rocket planes being the only examples I could find). It has less to do with the strength of the wing, and more to do the SHAPE of the wing. A wing design strong enough to withstand the stresses of transonic flight is fine but in this case it causes so much drag that supersonic flight would be nearly if not impossible. Further, if it was capable of such things, there would evidence of the Russians testing this idea and there is none and there is no limit to information on the Su-25's development nowadays, in fact I have a rather detailed book that discusses that very topic..

Also, the A-10 was never built with high speed in mind in the first place. It was designed to achieve a speed perfect for engaging stationary and moving targets on the ground and in such cases, the slower the better. So of course it's airframe doesn't allow for supersonic speed, it was designed that way from the start. The same is true of the Su-25. Such speed isn't desirable for such aircraft in the first place.

AC,

You should also post your image of IRGC SU-25s with US UAV here!

With all respect, your arguments are not factual. First of all the Su-25 does not have straight wings, they're high-lift wings of moderate sweep. I do insist the aircraft can go over mach one. Again watch this video Min 10:49 -10:60, where the former USAF pilot who is the first western pilot ever flying the SU-25 confirms this fact (it can go over mach 1 once it has punched everything off of it). For you information the video dates back to the 90s.
