Russia’s Aircraft Carrier Launches Its First Combat Air Patrols over Syria

Russia’s aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov, has for the first time launched combat jets on flights over Syria, scouting out the city of Aleppo ahead of anticipated strikes.

Its force of Sukhoi Su-33 and Mikoyan MiG-29K strike fighters took to the skies early on Wednesday on what the Russian Ministry of Defense says were scout missions.

The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier is currently in waters between Crete and Syria, accompanied by the nuclear- powered Peter the Great missile cruiser and several other ships and submarines.

This is the Russian navy’s largest deployment since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.
