Sukhoi Su-25 in our “kitchen” (Kuchyna Air Base, Slovakia) Pt. IV. Undercarriage

In this part of my article regarding the Slovak Su-25 at Kuchyna Air Base I am adding several photographs of the undercarriage and particularly the main undercarriage wells. You can also find the shots of open hatches in the lower part of the engine nacelles in more detail.

The main undercarriage on the right side of the airplane is visible here:

Please note the amount of various color stencils on the upper wheel well cover:

Details of the right main undercarriage well (The shape complexity and non-equal colouring of the well surfaces is noteworthy.):

The rear portion of the engine nacelle on the right side. Note its interesting surface – pronounced riveting is well visible here. Also do not overlook the wing moving surface actuator and the way how the drop-tank stabilizers are attached:

Here we have closer looks onto the opened hatches in the lower engine nacelles (the right-hand side first, then the left-hand side one):
