Taken on Nov. 30, the following images show a Syrian Arab Air Force MiG-23ML using B-8 pods to fire rockets to ground targets located at Jabal Azzawiyah, Idleb province, Syria.

Such pods are used to fire 80-mm S-8 unguided rockets, a kind of weapon that was employed by both SyAAF Mil Mi-25 gunship helicopters, Mig-29 Fulcrum and Su-22 attack planes.
