Russian airmen have inscribed 'That's for Paris' on the side of one of the bombs they plan to use against Isis in Syria.
The official Twitter account of the Russian Embassy in the UK shared a picture of the bomb.
A video has also emerged of some 18 cruise missiles being unleashed by Russia against IS targets in Syria.
The missiles were fired from warships in the Caspian Sea at seven "terrorist positions" in Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo, Sky News reports.

Russia has intensified strikes on Syrian militants, including from Islamic State, which has claimed responsibility for the attacks that killed 130 people in Paris and for downing a Russian airliner in Egypt last month, killing all 224 on board.
Russian politicians have said the Paris attack underscores the need for the West and the Kremlin to bury their differences and join forces to take on militants in Syria
