The rewards for the 2023 Summer Event have been revealed.
Of particular interest is the Su-25 558 ARZ, a variant ordered by Kazakhstan and Bulgaria from the 558 ARZ plant in Belarus between 2016 and 2018.They were intended to improve existing K models.
I have not heard any information or news that the BM type was improved. Anyone know of such a source?
This article is about Bulgarian Su-25K modified with 558 ARZ.
This article is for Kazakhstan’s Su-25.
Looking at several other articles, there is no information that the BM was modified, and there is no article that the engine was changed from the UMPO R-95 to the R-195.
The BM with the engine replaced with the R-195 has a distinctive appearance. Part of the engine nozzle protrudes from the nacelle, and there are small air intakes above and below the nacelle. This is similar to the T type, and you can tell the difference between the K type and the T type in the game.
Even if you look at the photo of the Su-25, which is said to have been modified by the 558 ARZ factory, it does not have the characteristics seen in the BM. What’s more, even the Devblog screenshots released the other day don’t have these features.
Therefore, it is doubtful that the Su-25BM 558 ARZ is a BM, and the engine may not have been replaced with the R-195.
