Attack aircraft used for a very unusual mission.
In fact, on Apr. 18, two Fullbacks were deployed to drop bombs on thick ice that created a natural dam along the Sukhona River, in the Vologda region, putting over 4,500 people in danger.
According to RT, two Su-34 jets took off from the Voronezh region in southwestern Russian and dropped precision-guided explosives onto the frozen parts of the river in order to allow natural water flow to resume.
The warplanes were ordered to deploy explosives “every hour,” said the head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, Vladimir Puchkov.
