I think the regular bombings were done with Su-24.
Su-24 is an expensive and vulnerable bomber. Therefore it is used from high altitudes. To improve the accuracy of the defeat, the "Hephaestus" system is used, which brings the accuracy of unguided aerial bombs almost to the level of guided ones. But this system works only on fixed coordinates. Approximately, like JDAM. Therefore, it is not suitable for free hunting, destruction of armored vehicles, etc.

Helicopters (Mi-28, Ka-52) work well against armored vehicles, but are more vulnerable due to low altitude and low speed. In addition, they have a small combat radius, they take longer to the right place at the request of air support. They do not carry powerful enough weapons to hit the suddenly discovered fortified target.

Stormtroopers, such as the Su-25 or A-10 occupy an intermediate niche. They are sufficiently tenacious to stick under enemy fire, have higher speed and range, in order to respond more quickly to the request for air support, they carry rather powerful weapons.

Therefore for the Su-25 there is a lot of work that suits him better than the Su-24 or Mi-28.

A large share of the targets are fixed, indeed. HQs, workshops, bases, ect. Thousands of them were destroyed, taking away the organization from the terrorists. Sure, another important goal is to suppress the movements but that is not always possible.

Oh, this Western media-mythology.
