An Su-25 Scorpion aircraft
An Su-25 Scorpion aircraft upgraded by Elbit Systems Ltd. of Israel, and TAM, the original Russian manufacturer, made its official maiden flight last week at TAM airfield in Tbilisi, Georgia. Modifications to the close air support aircraft include an advanced avionics system with a new weapon delivery and navigation system, designed to handle both Eastern- and Western-types of weapons and pods. The improved cockpit has two 6 X 8-in. color LCD displays and a head-up display.
