Su-24 Fencers over Syria by zulumike Su-24 Fencers over Syria by zulumike

While the four Russia Su-34 Fullback bombers deployed to Syria are eye-catching, most of  the Russian air force’s long-range striking power in the region comes courtesy of the venerable Su-24M2 Fencer. Russia has deployed twelve of the distinctive twin-engine, variable geometry wing jets to its base in Latakia.

While the Fencer is an aged design that can trace its inception back to the 1960's, Russia’s remaining fleet of Su-24s has been heavily upgraded with modern systems. The current version of the Fencer is equipped with GLONASS satellite navigation systems, an upgraded glass cockpit, a modern head-up display and an upgraded air-to-air self-defense capability with the addition of R-73 high off-boresight missiles.

This is an old school illustration done in Photoshop paint effects. Sky was painted with Gimp and Paint.net.

Really awesome picture, but there's an inaccuracy. Why aren't they blowing up CIA trained Syrian Rebels?
