Su-25K
Unit: unknown
Serial: 25591

The appearance of the Su-25K in Iraqi service remains a sort of a mystery. Although Russian and the Ukrainian reports claim that over 80 aircraft were delivered between 1985 and 1989, that these saw extensive service during the later stages of the war against Iran, especially in 1988, and that a number of Iraqi Su-25-pilots were highly decorated by Saddam Hussein personally, in fact only one squadron is known to have been equipped with the type in 1986, and the other became operational only after the war with Iran. According to Iranian reports - some of which can be confirmed by pictorial evidence - the Su-25 was a rare appearance over the battlefield even in 1988: only two were ever encountered in air combat, one was shot down (there are photographs of the wreckage) and two badly damaged by ground fire. In 1991 seven were flown out to Iran, where they were subsequently taken over by the IRGCAF, while in 2003 the US forces captured only a handfull of Su-25s. Consequently, it is likely that Iraq eventually ordered over 80 Su-25s, or stated intention to do so, but it is unlikely that more than 30 were indeed delivered.
