While the four Russian Su-34 Fullback bombers deployed to Syria are eye-catching, most of  the Russian air force’s long-range striking power in the region comes courtesy of the venerable Su-24M2 Fencer. Russia has deployed twelve of the distinctive twin-engine, variable geometry wing jets to its base in Latakia.

While the Fencer is an aged design that can trace its inception to the 1960s , Russia’s remaining fleet of Su-24s has been heavily upgraded with modern systems. The current version of the Fencer is equipped with GLONASS satellite navigation systems, an upgraded glass cockpit, a modern head-up display and an upgraded air-to-air self-defense capability with the addition of R-73 high off-boresight missiles.

The jet has also been provisioned to carry a wider range of precision-guided munitions. But while the Russian jet can be equipped with precision-guided weapons, according to U.S. Air Force officials—Russian forces don’t appear to be using such weapons. Instead the Russians appear to be mostly using unguided munitions according to Pentagon officials. Indeed, U.S. Air Force officials have gone on the recording saying so. “Those aren’t precision weapons,” U.S. Air Force intelligence chief Lt. Gen. Robert Otto told reporters on Thursday as quoted by TIME . “We can tell what’s hanging off the airplane.”
