BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 P.M.) – Two more 5th generation Su-57 fighter jets landed at Hmaymim Military Airport in southwestern Latakia, pro-government accounts reported on Friday.

According to the reports, the two Su-57 fighter jets were escorted by several Su-30SM as they made their way from Russia to the Syrian port-city of Jableh in the Latakia Governorate.

With this latest deployment of Su-57, the Russian military has now sent at least four of these elite jets to Syria.

While the purpose of this deployment is not yet clear, the Russian Aerospace Forces have also sent a large number of
Su-25 and Su-35 jets to this front.

That seems to be clear! –
1.) They will bring down the next israelian F-35 Top-Rubbish-Fighters
2.) They will erade all terrorists in al Tanf
3.) They will stop aktively the turkish fighter-jets and bombers and also turkish positions…
4.) At least they will erade all ISIS- and Al-Nusra command-centers

And I suppose there will arrive at least still two others to complete the unit.

Too early to say but this might be a reaction to the intentional killing of Russians by the west. Quite possibly gloves are off.

… or that Russians *think* that things *may* get hotter, and their aim is “kindly suggesting” to all parties interested in upping the ante that a prompt retribution is an option. Anyway, lots of air superiority planes came, not just Su-57’s. That spells “no-fly zone”, should it suit.
