Dramatic footage shows a multifunctional Su-30SM fighter obliterating a decommissioned Petya-class Syrian patrol vessel in the Mediterranean.

The patrol boat was blown to smithereens with X-35 anti-ship missiles as part of joint training exercises with forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, according to pro-Kremlin media.

In the chilling video, a stream of smoke can be seen shooting into the sky after the aircraft fires a salvo of missiles at the mock enemy vessel.

Debris from the ship scatters across the sea before a second rocket flies into the warship, finishing off and drowning the target.

The strike was reportedly carried out on April 15 – 24 hours after Britain, France and the US launched a bomb attack on suspected chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

US President Donald Trump ordered the strike in response to an alleged chemical attack on civilians and rebels in Douma, Eastern Ghouta.

Putin reacted angrily, calling the airstrikes an “act of aggression” against Syria, whose regime relies on Russia for military support.

The sinking of the ship was “a warning for the US and NATO fleet”, claimed Rusnevsa, a site highlighting military activities in eastern Ukraine and Syria.
