On July 30, 2017, fighter jets from several countries entered the skies over Syria, including a Russian Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet.
The Russian planes, which are equipped with sophisticated sensors and are able to detect ballistic missiles, carried out their first air strike against an enemy facility, as reported by The Washington Post.
A total of seven air strikes took place, including the use of cruise missiles.
It’s important to note that all these strikes were conducted by Russian warplanes, which means they were carried out by Russian jets.
The Su-30 was an aircraft that was already in use by Russia since late 2015, when it entered service as the Sukhois MiG-29Ks.
Russia has deployed an additional five Su-34 strike jets as part of the Strategic Missile Forces.
Russia’s new Sukhoises are being used in air-to-air combat against ISIS, which has been conducting a significant advance on the Iraqi city of Mosul.
In June, the U.S. deployed the first Su-35 to the U,S.
Central Command in Afghanistan, and Russia is also reportedly using Su-27Ks against the Islamic State.
The Su-33 was the Russian jet that took off from a military base in Afghanistan in 2015.
The first Su and Su-24 attack jets from the Russian side of the border were deployed against ISIS targets in August, and the second one was launched in October, but it’s not clear when those planes were deployed.
Russia was also able to launch a single Su-22 backfired from the Syrian airbase of Khmeimim in January 2017, killing four soldiers.
It was reported that the Su-28s from the country’s airbase in Syria flew missions against ISIS.
The latest Su-29S attack jet from Russia, the Su, is still in service.
The aircraft has been the subject of a number of technical problems, with the last two jets undergoing maintenance.
It has also been reported that Russia is developing an upgraded version of the Su.
The US and Russia are also reportedly conducting a new aircraft carrier based on the aircraft carrier Mikoyan-Gurevich.
Russia also began construction of a new runway in the western part of Latakia, and a new airfield near the city of Tartus, which will be used for future air operations against ISIS and other terrorist groups.
The Su was also in service in the 1990s.
In 1999, Russia acquired the Su5-4, which was the first Russian fighter jet to be acquired by a foreign nation.
Since then, the Russian aircraft has received several upgrades, including modern avionics, advanced sensors, and high-tech avionics systems.
