SUU-25 Flare Dispenser

The SUU-25 flare dispenser carries decoy flares which are rigged to ignite instantaneously upon ejection from the dispenser to decoy missiles fired at aircraft.

The SUU-25 flare dispensers can also carry either 8 LUU-1 target marking flares or 8 LUU-2 pyrotechnic illuminating flares. The flare dispenser, which remains attached to the aircraft, is a tubular metal body consisting of four tubes clustered and enclosed by an outer skin with a bulkhead at each end. Two flares are loaded in each tube, with four in the forward section and four in the aft end of the dispenser. The flares are ejected from the rear of the dispenser.

The SUU-25 has a unit cost of $1557.
