Air Launch.

This is coolbert:

Russian long-range strategic aviation enters the fray in Syria. What had been anticipated has now come to pass. A barrage of air-launched cruise missiles and "dumb" bombs as dropped, Islamic State targets under attack by BEAR, BLACKJACK AND BACKFIRE!

From MARCONI through Harry:

"Timings and details of the missions at following links. 'In accordance to the task assigned by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces concerning enhancing combat air operations in the Syrian Arab Republic, crews of Tu-160 [Blackjack], Tu-95MS [Bear] and Tu-22M3 [Backfire] long-range aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out strikes with air-based cruise missiles at the ISIS terrorist objects within the air operation.  Today, from 5.00 through 5.30 a.m. (MSK), twelve Tu-22M3 long-range bombers carried out strikes at the ISIS terrorist facilities in Raqqah and Deir-ez-Zor provinces.  From 9.00 through 9.40, Tu-160 and Tu-95MS launched 34 air-based cruise missiles on terrorist objects located in Aleppo and Idlib.'  It appears that some of the air launched cruise missiles malfunctioned . . . Tu-160 releasing Kh-101s, Tu-95MS releasing Kh-555 [Kh-55] and Tu-22M dropping OFAB bombs."

AND Flight24 was able to track these warplanes en route to the objective? Consider too that now the kitchen sink has been thrown?

Why do the Russians and the French get all the fat targets all of a sudden? This week the Daily Mail published photographs of oil trucks burning after a Russian strike, how is it that there is a single petroleum container in existence in the Caliphate of ISIS after a year of U.S. airborne interdiction? Punches have been pulled, that much seems clear, but why?
