With the addition of the very well handling jets (Su-22, Su-39 and Q-5) in PR 1.0 the Su-25 frogfoot does not compare with them anymore. The Su-25 is a powerful, yet underachieving jet in this class because of its low turn-rate. All of the jets in this category, (previously mentioned jets+A-10) are quite well maneuvered. It cannot even fight an A-10 very well, and is nearly useless against fighters, unlike the Su-22.

IRL though, the Su-25 is more maneuverable than the Su-39, because the Su-39 is heavier and has worse aerodynamics (Su-25 (http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-photos/middle/9/2/7/2550729.jpg)) (Su-39 (http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-photos/photos/8/5/4/1647458.jpg)) because it's made from the 2-seater Su-25 (Su-25UB). It is also more maneuverable than the Su-22 because of the Su-22's small wing surface-area.

Though this is not a huge problem as the only map Su-25 is in is Khamisiyah, it would be nice to see a change to this.

Thanks for the report, I recently noticed this as well.

Added it to the bug tracker.

Will be in future maps, thus really needs fixed.
