Arriving at Syria's Bassel Al-Assad International Airport in September 2015, six Su-34 Fullbacks began aerial attacks on September 30 in the Homs region against the Islamic State. They used concrete-piercing bombs to destroy the underground bunkers, which contained explosives. Their targets were located by using the GLONASS satellite system and on November 8 additional aircraft arrived in Syria. In addition to giving the Russian Air Force the ability to increase their skills, the Su-34 maintained a 70% availability rate.
This 1/72 scale, die cast model is a Hobby Master replica of a Su-34 Fullback, as it appeared as "Red 26" at the Russian Air Force in Syria during 2015, features engraved panel lines, optional-position landing gear, optional armament (including ECM pods), an opening canopy with a pilot figure, a well-equipped cockpit, a professionally hand painted scheme, authentic markings, and a display stand. Measures 12" long with a 8" wingspan.
