"God willing within one week this force will be effective and will destroy the terrorists' dens," he told BBC Arabic."
Hahaha, what a nutter! One week to deliver combat aircraft, train it's pilots AND be effective!
Buying and operating military jets takes a little bit more than quickly flipping through the manual (in Russian I resume) and pressing the "go" button.
UNLESS of course, these used Russian figher jets come fully equiped with, say...Russian military advisors acting as pilots...

Dude all they need to do is allow say 5 Syrian pilots and deliver 5 SU-25 Frog Foots.  It is a Russian A-10.
This little bastard plane is like a tank but it is also quick and can dog fight.  The video shows US crews walking the flightline aka runway to pick up crap.  Russian plans can fly off of junk airfields.  They are stirdy planes.
You hit a F-35 with a .22 round and the plane will catch on fire.
