Mid October 2016 the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov and seven other Russian vessels left for the Syrian coast. On November 15, 2016 the carrier and its ten Su-33 and four MiG-29KR/KUBR aircraft took part in a large operation against ISIS in the Homs area using 500 pound bombs. Admiral Kuznetsov returned to its home port of Severomorsk in February 2017. One of the ten Su-33s was Bort 84 of the 279th Shipborne Fighter Aviation Regiment 2nd Squadron "Tigers", delivered on April 19, 1994.

Sukhoi Su-33 Flanker-D

Designed by the Soviet Union to challenge the superiority of fourth generation US fighters such as the F-15 Eagle, the Su-27 was first flown on May 20, 1977. This one seat Mach-2 fighter had the Soviet Union's first operational fly-by-wire system. The aircraft is very large compared to the MiG-29, its closest Soviet counterpart, but it is built with a high percentage of titanium, which helps minimize its weight. It is exceptionally agile and is perhaps most famous for its "Cobra" maneuver, which is a short, sustained level flight at a 120 degree angle of attack, often performed at air shows.
