Russia's Hi-Tech Campaign in Syria Becomes a 'Sobering Experience' for NATO
MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia’s aerial campaign in Syria has proven the high combat capabilities of the Russian aviation, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Tuesday.

"The high combat capabilities of the Russian aviation are confirmed in the operations in Syria," Shoigu said during a conference call.

The minister noted that the Russian Aerospace Forces have proven to have "self-sufficient aviation groups in strategic sectors capable of securely solving intended tasks."

Russia launched an anti-terrorist campaign in Syria on September 30, following a request from the Syrian government and approval by the Russian parliament.

The Russian General Staff chief noted that the Russian Aerospace Forces have conducted 100 daily combat missions, on average, since January 22.

Russian aircraft had carried out over 5,600 sorties in Syria as of mid-January, taking out thousands of terrorist targets, including several hundred militants, dozens of command centers and depots.
