    IL-76 & SU-30 over Syria, cool vid



    The Russians do these airdrops occasionally, drop aid to civilians in hard to reach places; also resupply SAA and own forces way out in the desert somewhere. When Deir-Ezzor used to be besieged by ISIS, they regularly dropped stuff to the SAA troops defending the city. Helped keep 'em going for two years, since Russia got involved, till ISIS was expelled from there this year.

    That SU-30 escort pilot is a furst rate jackass though... Trying to look cool on camera, Mr. Top Gun lol

    Very dangerous move, regardless of even the airdrop, flying so close to a bigger aircraft. I am no pilot, but even I know that...

    Yep, its a definite no-no.

    He'll probably get his ass chewed out by his superior for it to.

    Still, it was funny though.
