20. Seeing that we have a group of targets, I'll increase the Ripple Interval to 0.3 seconds to space out the impact points.
21. Lining up our target approach.
22. Maneuver the aircraft to place the reticle over the target and hold down the "Space" bar or trigger.
23. Keeping the trigger held down, fly the aircraft so that the G-line stays centered in the targeting reticle. This will keep us on the target.
24. A count-down timer to release is displayed on the left side of the HUD. An audible tone will be heard 2 seconds before release.
25. Release! The weapons are automatically released, but you must keep holding down the trigger until all the bombs have been released.
26. For the next pass, we'll try level-bombing using the CCRP mode in combination with the "Shkval" targeting system to lock the target. We'll then have the autopilot fly the aircraft to the release point.
27. We'll use FAB-100 light-weight, blast-fragmentation bombs. In this case, they are loaded on Multiple Ejector Racks (MER) with 4 bombs each. We'll set the Ripple Interval switch to the setting designed for this purpose.
28. The "KMGU/MBD Series" switch configures the release such that weapons will come off one station only after the previous station has been unloaded.
29. I'll set the Ripple Quantity switch to "All."
30. Lining up our target approach along the line of targets.
31. Activate the "Shkval" system by pressing "O". Search for and lock the target or the point of interest on the ground.
32. Engage the autopilot by pressing "A" or "LALT + 6". The SAU-8 autopilot system will fly the aircraft directly to the bomb release point.
33. As you approach the target, activate the laser by pressing "RShift + O".
34. As you can see, the autopilot maintains the aircraft heading toward target.
35. Release! The weapons are released automatically, but you must keep holding down the trigger until all the bombs have been released.
36. Press "LALT + 9" to disengage the autopilot.
37. To let you practice bombing with the Su-25T, we will come in for a landing to re-arm.
38. As you can see, the Su-25T can employ unguided bombs effectively and with precision in good visibility conditions. Combined with deadly munitions and good armor protection, this makes it a dangerous aircraft on the today's battlefield.
39. Coming in for a landing
40. Coming to a full stop. Re-arming is only possible after the aircraft has come to a full stop.
41. When stopped, contact the ground personnel to request re-arming.
