From CNN thanks to the tip from Freeper Russian military capability in Syria now including FULLBACK warplanes.
"U.S. official: Russia 'ready' to launch airstrikes in Syria"
"Washington (CNN) Russian airstrikes in Syria could happen at any time, a U.S. official with knowledge of the latest intelligence told CNN."
Su-34 FULLBACK the successor to the Su-24. Fighter-bomber of extraordinary capability to include ground-attack .
"Four Russian SU-34 Fullback fighters are now at the Latakia air base, and more than 600 Russian troops are in place.:

"U.S. intelligence has observed the possible staging of multiple rocket launch systems [MLRS] at Russian ports, which could be loaded onto ships bound for Syria. It has also observed a small number of Russian long-range bombers being moved into airfields in the southern part of Russia, which could give them a long-range heavy bomber capability in Syria"
THOSE LONG-RANGE BOMBERS I MIGHT SUSPECT TO BE THE Tu-22M3 FUNCTIONING MUCH IN THE SAME FASHION AS THE AMERICAN B-1!
"The Tupolev Tu-22M (NATO reporting name: Backfire) is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing, long-range strategic and maritime strike bomber"
