The 299th Tactical Aviation Regiment (299 BrTA) is based at Mykolaiv/Kulbakino Air Base. In March 2010 the unit received its first modernized Su-25s, two single-seat Su-25M1s and one Su-25UBM1. The upgrade consists of new GPS, radios, modern calculator sight and pixelated paint scheme. All Su-25s returning to service after March 2013 will have the new pixelated paint scheme so aircraft numbers blue 07, 08, 38 and 40 returned that year. In August 2014 Su-25M1 Blue 08 was shot down near Starobeshevo by a Russian missile, the pilot ejected safely.Opening canopy

In 1999 Russia decided to upgrade their Su-25s with actual work beginning in 2001. The first of the upgraded aircraft designated Su-25SM (Stroyevoy Modernizirovannyi) Grach (Rook) flew on March 3, 2002 with the first six aircraft entering service with the Russian Air Force in December of 2006. The modernization was intended to expand the life of the Su-25, make it All-Weather capable, more lethal and reduce operating and maintenance cost. The upgrades also increased ordnance loads and a wider selection of ordnance was also added.
Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
