ISIS claims that this is a replica of the bomb that brought down the Russian plane. It is possible, but I do not think probable. The Russians are saying it was a 2.2 pound bomb; this device as shown would not hold that much. The rest would work, although if the explosive used was TATP as claimed it would not need a detonator like this one, even though this one would certainly work. You can not tell a lot about the activation system from the picture, but it would not take much. -RR/TH
