MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. An upgraded strategic bomber Tupolev-95MSM on Thursday delivered the first-ever strike with X-101 cruise missiles while on a mission to destroy the strongholds of terrorist groupings in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said at its official channel in YouTube.

No reports on the dispatches of these turboprops in strikes at terrorists in Syria were made earlier.

The Russian Aerospace Force put the first upgraded Tupolev-95MSM into service in August 2015. It received the codename Dubna, after a town in the Moscow region, which is an internationally known center of nuclear research in Russia.

The video shows that two bombers as a minimum took off from a Russian airbase. An older of the Tupolev-95 family of turboprops, a Tupolev-95MS codenamed Vorkuta, joined the modernized bomber on the flight to Syria.
