    An air  squadron of the Central Military District will be formed in Tuva in the spring of 2019

    The aviation squadron, part of the transport regiment of the Central Military District, will be formed before March 1 at the airfield in Kyzyl (Tuva).

    The squadron will include Terminator Mi-8 AMTSh-V helicopters and An-26 transport aircraft. The pilots will carry out tasks for transporting troops of the motorized rifle brigade to perform combat training missions in remote mountainous areas, and will also be used in various tactical exercises from company to brigade level.[/b]

    Guys,
    are you able to list all the serial numbers and/or bort numbers of Su-35S planes that have been involved in Syria deployment?
    All I know is that:
    the first rotation involved Red 03 (s/n 49083502517), Red 04 (s/n 49083502518), Red 05 (s/n 49083502519) and Red 06 (s/n 49083502520)
    the second rotation involved Red 50 (s/n 49083503309), Red 51 (s/n 49083503310), Red 52 (s/n 49083503311) and Red 53 (s/n 49083503312).

    What about later rotations?

    I just find new and interesting images in Google Maps:


    Yekaterinburg - Kotlsovo Airport  : 32 OTSAP  (separate composite transport aviation regiment)

    We can see the most of the regiment assets parked in the regiment place at the same time:

    https://www.google.com/maps/@56.7478645,60.8256617,260m/data=!3m1!1e3

    there are:

    8 An-12

    2 An-148
    2 L-410
    1 Tu-154 (Chief of Central MD)
    4 Mi-8AMTSh

    Let's see new satellite images and photos of the Migalovo air base in Tver

    Migalovo is the main base of Military Transport Aviation (VTA, in russian: BTA)


    In this base there are the next units:


    ● Command and Headquarters of Military Transpot Aviation (KVTA)
    ● Squadron of Headquarters (BKhAT, in russian БХАТ КВТА). This unit has a couple of An-12 , 3 An-26 and one Tu-134 (Chief of VTA)
    In the satellite we can see this airplanes in the north-west área of the aerodrome:  https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8357923,35.7433829,404m/data=!3m1!1e3


    ● Headquarters of 224 LO (Flying Group - with a civil lisense for fly out Russia bypassing the western limits to russian military aircrafts)
    ● Detachment of 224 LO with Il-76MD
    224 LO has detachments of several Il-76MD in Tver, Pskov , Taganrog, Orenburg and Ulyanovsk. In total at least 16  Il-76MD
    Also 224 LO has a squadron of 8 An-124-100 based in Sescha (566 VTAP is in reserve with the not modernizaed An-124)


    ● Headquarters of 12º VTAD ( VTA División)
    ● 196 VTAP (VTA Regiment) with 18 Il-76MD
    We can see the airplanes of this regiment in the central área of the aerodrome https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8300695,35.7564936,646m/data=!3m1!1e3
    In the satellite images of last year and the present year, some Il-76 are not in the aerodromes, they are working. Is for that the high number of photos of Il-76 appeared in RP since the end of 2017


    ● 76 OVTAE (separate squadron of VTA) with An-22 and An-124-100
    We can see those airplanes in the north-east área of the airbase https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8361797,35.7599161,404m/data=!3m1!1e3

    We can even see the registration of that big airplanes: https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8361921,35.7583252,50m/data=!3m1!1e3
    In each parking site for this big airplanes there are big green boxes with tools and other things prepared for the maintenance of the airplanes.
    In total there are 9 parking sites prepared for the big airplanes of 76 OVTAE

    In the satellite we can see one An-124-100 (RA-82011) and 5 An-22 (starting from rigth: RA-09344, RA-09328 , RA-09342, RF-09309 and the fifth in the left, without numbers, but it is RA-09341)

    Also , in previous satellite images there was other An-124-100 parked in Migalovo , the RA-82035 https://russianplanes.net/id218219

    There are one empty site for a sixth An-22, this airplane is parked in Ivanovo airbase, perhaps waiting for reairs in the 308 ARZ https://www.google.es/maps/@57.0530665,40.9856882,100m/data=!3m1!1e3
    It is the An-22 RA-08832 arrived to Ivanovo time ago https://russianplanes.net/id200483

    At Ivanovo 308 storage site , also there are one seventh An-22 (RA-09029) , but seems decomisiones some time ago. https://www.google.es/maps/@57.0456392,40.9685395,50m/data=!3m1!1e3

    The 76 OVTAE has assigned in total at least 8 big airplanes; 6 An-22 and at least 2 An-124-100

    Probably more just modernized An-124-100 will replace the reamining An-22 once they consume the flight hours that remain to the resource of the An-22

    76 OVTAE is the successor of regiment 8 OVTAP with An-22 , that was downgraded to squadron by 2010-2011
    In this old satellite image we can see the full regiment of An-22 https://zoom.earth/#view=56.835616,35.759298,16z/layers=archive47


    ● In the Migalovo air base also there was a reserve unit, but currently the most of the airplanes have been recycled
    The reserve unit is in the south west of the aerodrome: https://www.google.es/maps/@56.8277613,35.7426596,404m/data=!3m1!1e3




    We also can see this airplanes of 76 OVTAE in detail in russianplanes:
