    In Krdemir alone you can count 23-24 Su-25s.
    Wonder how many of those are still operational.. That many bort numbers don't see to appear on any pictures of operational aircraft.

      There are Su-25s at other airbases as well. I'm positive that the entire Su-25 fleet is operational. Azerbaijan has now the capability of repair, overhaul and modernization of these aircrafts. And new engines are acquired from Russia without any problem, as in the case of 15 Su-25 acquired from Georgia (which also involved technology transfer).

      There isn't exactly an abundance of photos to make such assesment. Many also appear without any bort number.

          Libya again. Tell me when this topic becomes boring.

          A high-res photo of MiG-21s from Gaddafi times.



          A post-Gaddafi MiG-23BN with new Libyan marking. IIRC this machine wasn't airworthy and actually never flew with that marking.



          A row of 21s of General Haftar's forces.



          Galebs of Gaddafi's Libyan AF at Misrata base.

                  I only saw an artwork of this machine in Zairean colours. It is a similar mystery as Zairean Super Frlons. At least to me

                                      The second two photos are of a Super Frelon, but the first is of a Puma.

                                          Yeah, you're right- I stand corrected! I didn't notice the landing gear fairing on the first image because it blended in with the rest of the white fuselage so well.
