Russia to Use Su-25 Jets in Tajikistan Military Training

A wing of Su-25 ground attack aircraft from Russia’s Kant integrated airbase in Kyrgyzstan will take part in the joint drills of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) member states in Tajikistan, according to the press service of the country’s Central Military District. As specified, the crews will practice eliminating conditional enemy targets.  

It is noted that the CSTO member states will hold joint drills dubbed Interaction, Search, and Echelon on the territory of Tajikistan near the border with Afghanistan this October that will involve over 2,700 troops.

That is why four Su-25 attack aircraft have already landed at the military base ready to provide fire support from the air for motorized infantry and armoured units in the course of accomplishing combat training assignments on mountainous and desert terrain at the Gissar airfield near Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
