The Russian Air Force kept busy in northern Syria on Monday morning after taking a brief hiatus from several fronts due to unspecified reasons.

With Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) attacking the Aleppo Cement Factory, the Russian Air Force took it upon themselves to rain bombs over the jihadist rebel positions in western and southern Aleppo.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Russian Air Force struck Jaysh Al-Fateh’s positions at the Artillery Academy, Al-Ramouseh, Al-‘Amariyah, Khan Touman, Atarib, and Kafr Hamra.

However, the Russian airstrikes were not limited to Aleppo; in fact, the latter launched attacks that targeted the jihadist rebels at the Homs, Latakia, Idlib, Deir Ezzor, and Hama Governorates before shifting their attention to the Palmyra front.

The nationwide Russian airstrikes are still ongoing at the moment, despite the dissipation in the overall number of attacks taking place across Syria.

Well, actually it can deliver 24 000 Kg (53,000 lb) of payload, or “bombs” as you put it. At distance of 6,800 km with max speed of Mach 2.05

Pretty bad-a*s. More payload than B-2 and much faster.
If they mount Khybini aboard, it’d be even stealthier…
