The publication states that the Russian Airborne High-Speed ​​Radar Detection Aircraft flew over the Syrian province of Idlib.

In January, the Tu-214P spotted over Turkey. Local observer and photographer Yoruk Isik suggested that the “most advanced” Russian reconnaissance aircraft flies from the Chkalovsky airfield to the Khmeimim airbase in Syria through Turkish airspace. To the record, he attached the flight map of the aircraft with the number RF-64514.

This plane was already in Syria in 2016: it landed at the Khmeimim airbase and stayed in the republic for two weeks. In July, the car was again seen in the country.

The Russian Air Force has two Tu-214Rs. The aircraft were built by order of military unit 45807 – this is the designation of the GRU headquarters in Moscow.

The machine is equipped with various means of electronic intelligence and, in particular, a georadar, which allows you to detect hidden underground or disguised objects.
