Tu-95Russian Tu-95MS long-range bombers struck ISIS targets in Syria with brand new Kh-101  cruise missiles.

The strategic raid was carried by an undisclosed number of Tu-95MS heavy bombers which departed on their mission from Engels Airbase in Russia, performed a mid-flight refueling and, upon reaching their weapons release points, fired four Kh-101 cruise missiles at ISIS targets in the town of Aqriybat which borders the governonates of Homs and Hama.

The Kh-101 is a strategic, air-launched Russian cruise missile, manufactured using modern technology to reduce radar visibility. It can destroy a target up to 4,500 kilometers away.
