    Russia's top-notch aircraft whizzed across the Moscow sky during the final rehearsal of the Victory Day military parade on May 9.

    The video opens with the Kubinka Diamond — a joint team of the Russian Knights and Swifts aerobatic teams piloting five Su-27 heavy fighters and four MiG-29 jets respectively.

    They are followed by the highly maneuverable Ka-52 (easily recognized by their distinctive coaxial rotor systems) and Mi-28N attack helicopters which have participated in Moscow's campaign against terrorists in Syria.

    Among other vehicles, six Su-25 assault aircraft paint the sky with the colors of the Russian flag.

    The brand new Su-35 multipurpose fighter, which debuted in Syria, is also expected to participate in the parade devoted to the Soviet Union's victory in the Great Patriotic War.
