A number of Mi-8 military transport helicopters also took part in the exercise along with the warplanes.

Several Russian Sukhoi Su-35 supermaneuverable fighter aircraft took off from the Hmeymim airbase in Syria to take part in a military exercise which involved dealing with various dangerous situations that may arise during the pilots’ mission in the war-torn country.

A video uploaded on YouTube by the Russian Defense Ministry’s TV Zvezda channel shows the deadly birds soar through the air and deploy flares while attempting to avoid simulated enemy fire.

According to Zvezda, a number of Mi-8 Hip military transport helicopters also took part in the exercise.

Funny since… Su-35 suddenly morphs into Su-34 to drop flares 😉
BTW, you drop flares against IR guided missiles…

Better modify trajectory to avoid the seekers to lock on engine heat and better brake and fly slow to avoid air friction (high subsonic : 28-29°C, Mach 1.8 : 128°C)…

So… This is not even drill to avoid missiles, it’s just aircraft-dropped fireworks, just like the C-130 angel during airshows :
