The Su-34 Fullback is the most advanced jet the Russian Air Force has deployed to Syria.

Entered in active service with the Russian Aerospace Forces in 2014, the Sukhoi Su-34 Fullback is a two-seat strike fighter with a maximum range of 4,000 km, a payload of up to 12,000 kg on 12 hardpoints, the ability to carry R-77 and and R-73 missiles, a 30 mm GSh-30-1 cannon, and a Khibiny ECM suite.

Six Fullbacks were deployed to Latakia, to join the RuAF contingent in Syria on Sept. 28. The aircraft took part to the first air strikes on ISIS targets using the only PGMs (Precision Guided Munitions) dropped by the Russian planes (mainly delivering dumb bombs) so far: the KAB-500S.

The infographic below (if you are reading from your mobile device click here), published by Sputnik, provides some interesting details about the Su-34.
