  4. Wow, this really is cool. Thanks for sharing! It reminds me of a smaller project from a few years ago about Yuri Gagarin's flight:
  5. Russian bombers over Syria

    Better video (most of the footage originally released was from past exercises): Tu-160 and Kh-101: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1679185272324222&set=vb.1492252324350852&type=2&theater Tu-95MS and Kh-555: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1679182688991147 Tu-22M3 and OFAB-250-270: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1679182275657855
  6. Russian bombers over Syria

    Yes, this marks the first time that the Tu-95 and Tu-160 have seen combat. Judging from footage from the ministry of defense, it looks like the Tu-160s were using new Kh-101s, while the Tu-95MS seem to have fired Kh-555 cruise missiles (their bomb bay being too small for the new missile and only test aircraft having been updated with under-wing pylons). I would guess that the Tu-22M3s have been dropping lots of conventional bombs... Additionally, there have been reports of Kalibr cruise missiles being launch from one of the new Kilo class SSKs in the Mediterranean, while Putin has ordered that Russian ships in the area operate with the French carrier "as allies." It is also planned that an aditional 8 Su-34s and 4 Su-27SM fighters join the airstrikes, based out of Russia.

  7. Russian Fighter ops in Syria

    Here's a pretty good run-down by RT on some of the weapons being used: https://www.rt.com/news/317662-russian-smart-bombs-syria/
  8. Russian Fighter ops in Syria

    Yes, there are more photos of those bombs at Gepard's link. The Russian MoD in their latest press releases reference BETAB-500 concrete piercing bombs, too.
  9. Russian Fighter ops in Syria

    There is a KAB-500S satellite guided bomb on one of those Su-34s in the RT vid... The Russian defense ministry has all sorts of interesting videos showing the strikes here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQGqX5Ndpm4snE0NTjyOJnA

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipD7oM8ZVFI I believe these are Su-27/Su-27SM3 and Su-30M2 fighters base out of Krymsk airbase, near Novorossiysk

    Cool. Exceptional low speed control and pretty much stall proof engines.... but looks like it needs a bit more HP. Hopefully those new engines don't get delayed anymore...
