It does. And isn't the title of the video a bit of a giveaway? Or do you mean the subtype, Strato?

Various sources mentioned a Su-24 Fencer. But it now indeed very much looks like a Northrop product (or a variant/derivative thereof) came to grief last Saturday.

In addition the pilot seems to wear an old US style helmet which is uncommon for pilots flying Soviet origin aircraft. Therefore an Su-24 seems unlikely.

Pilot is still in his ejection seat which hasn't detached yet. That can't be good. Also the chute doens't seem fully deployed. So he probably punched out (too??) late?
