Russo-Georgian 2008 War SU-25 In Action

The US backed Georgia paid dearly for going against Russia, bombed the hell of it, losing territory and most of its US made military equipment was confiscated and sent to the Russian federation. Fools

  • Besides the U.S., Russia is the last country you should go conventional against. WTF were they thinking?

  • The ironic things is that most Su-25s were built in Georgia in the TAM factory in the Soviet days.

    The Su-25 is still the best close support fighters in the world along the A-10. It even edges out the A-10 in terms that it can go supersonic.

    • Sorry, the Su-25 is a subsonic aircraft.

      Advantage: A-10 (in my opinion, mainly because of that lovely gun...)

  • Although Russia was quite abusive towards Georgia in this conflict, it was foolish of Georgia to provoke Russia. No way they could have withstood the more powerful Russian military. Besides that, there were serious problems by the Georgians in the way they handled the conflict, understimating Russia's response and thinking the NATO was going to protect them.

    • Indeed, the only foolish thing in this conflict was Sarkasfili's mind thinking Nato and the US would go against russia to aid their little country.

      If you are a small ex-republic of soviet and wonder whether US or Nato thiks its relationship with you is more worth than with russia. The answer is always; They will do pretty much everything to be on good terms with eachother thus rendering your little republic worthless in conflicts like these.

  • Ummmm What US equipment did they have? I thought they where also using Russian weapons. As for US backed? What? They asked to join Nato I'm pretty sure Nato just thought they were this cute little country trying to play with the big boys. The only reason Russian did shit was 1. That Oil pipe line. 2. Chechnya was still a huge embarrassment 3. Please reread number 1.

    • Are you serious, man?

      America has been funding and training Georgian military for years. US Marines were in Georgia at the time when the war broke out, training Georgian troops.

    • Ya, Ok, I did not say we where not training them. That does not mean US backed. Hell we will train anyone. I asked what equipment did we give them. So far the only thing I've found is We trained them on the M4's but during the conflict they used the AK47. The description Reads like we gave them our fighters and systems. On top of that. I don't know Russian but the video added with the description gave me the impression that they are trying to say their fighters beat US made fighters.

  • That was was embarrassing for Russia, old shitty communication systems broke down.

    They lost 6 planes, 3 of them was FRIENDLY FIRE.

    The army and air force had no communication what so ever.

    "Russian Ground Forces ... were not sure until the end of combat whether Russia's aviation had achieved air superiority," the Moscow Defense Brief said.

    • Oh give me a break with the "Big bad Russian" crap. The media fed us that bullshit all during the cold war how big and tough the USSR was. The fact is, their equipment was crap and their military tactics were useless. Ask the Egyptians when they used them against Israel, or the Libyans when they got their Mig-23's shot down, or the Iraqi's in Desert Storm. I'm sick of hearing about how badass China, Russia, and N.K are. Our military is the best trained and techno;ogically advanced comp More..

  • why in gods name would you. in any way shape or form mess with russia no matter who you where. let alone Georgia.

    sure the US or china are the only ones who would have the 50/50 chance to win.

    but even then. win what? and at what cost.

    eather way dont make it seem like the US somehow "lost" cuz of this. that seems to be what your trying to shove down my throat and i dont like it.

  • "The war uncovered serious deficiencies in the Russian armed forces, prompting doubts among some analysts as to whether Moscow would be able to defeat a bigger enemy and spurring the Kremlin to accelerate long-delayed military reforms."
