    Master photographer Gelio Vostok takes us behind the scenes of the assembly plant where one of Russia’s most technologically advanced and capable combat aircraft is built, the charismatic and deadly Sukhoi Su-34 Fullback.

    The Fullback, an Su-27 Flanker derivative, is roughly equivalent to something in between the American F-111 Aardvark and F-15E Strike Eagle, and it has been all over the headlines as of late due to its involvement in Syria.

    The Su-34 was the last fixed-wing combat aircraft type to arrive at Russia’s growing air base south of Latakia in Syria and is currently flying combat operations over the troubled country.


    Make sure to check out Gelio’s amazing photo blog, it’s chocked full of fantastic work.
