Photo evidence of a new Russian fighter jet caught flying just outside Finnmark in North Norway were released by Norwegian security forces on Tuesday.

The images were taken by Norwegian air defence personnel at the end of October, but capture the might of the new aircraft technology Russian has at its disposal and threat to security posed by the re-emerging superpower state.

The images showed two of the new Russian Su-34 fighter jets, never before been seen flying in and around North Europe.

The series of pictures were taken on October 29th this year, outside the coast of Finnmark, reported VG.

Brynjar Stordal, press spokesman at the Norwegian Joint Headquarters said: “The airplane type has been observed and identified by other NATO countries in other places before. But we have never seen them in the northern areas nor outside the coast of Norway before.”

The fighter jet Sukhoi Su-34- nicknamed "Fullback" - is the newest type of airplane in the Russian air defence, and the model was put into active service earlier this year.
