    In various sources (Scramble, this forum, etc.) i have run accross 2 Air Bases in Sakhalin only: DOLINSK SOKOL and BUREVESTNIK (the latter, further east, reaching into the West-Pacific Area)

    But no Units based there. Just a couple of transport helicopters in BUREVESTNIK from an Independent Helicopter Detachment of the 573rd Air Army Aviation and a Command Post in DOLINKS SOKOL, used by Aviation Command, 23 IAP integrated in the 303rd Composite Aviation Division.

    The 303rd Composite Aviation Division has itself some Fighter-Bombers, like the 277th Bomber aviation regiment based in KHURBA AB, much further west, in continental Eastern Military District. Is it the case that the SOKOL Base is active and some of these aircraft are regulary forward deployed there ?¿

    Thanks!!


    The Helicopters are supposed to belong to the 101st Army Aviation squadron. I don't believe there to be regularly deployed combat aircraft here or at least that I have heard of. There are 10-11 fighter and bomber squadrons based on the mainland that are within combat range of these airports.

    In Sakhalin Island there are the next bases:

    Dolinsk Sokol , base of 777 IAP of PVO, with Mig-23 until 1985 and Mig-31 until 1997, that regiment was disbanded.Today only a helicotper detachment , and used for drills of East Military District
    Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk (Khomutovo) base of 752 ZRP (anti aircraft misile regiment) until 1998. Today only a battallion of 1724 ZRP with S-300 and the 39 RTP
    Smirnykh (Sakhalin Oblast) , base of 528 IAP of PVO , with Mig-23 until 1994. Today empty

    Burevestnik is not at Sakhalin island, is in Iturp (Kuril Islands) , as well Kuril Islands are part of Sakhalin Oblast (district) , and here was the base of 41 IAP of PVO with Mig-23 until 1993 :Today only a helicotter detachment

    I think the only thing they have on the islands is air defense systems like Buk's and Tor's. Outside of that, no airforce. Things may change though with growing threats from US.

    OSAP (ОСАП)  O=Separate/Independent  S=Composite  A=Aviation  P=Regiment

    OVO (OBO) O=Separate/Independent V=Helicopter O=Detachment (Section/Squad size) , as Burevestnik/Iturp unit

    47 SAP was composite when had a squadron of Su-24MR. Once Su-24MR return to Shatalovo (former 47 GvORAP, now 4 ORAE) , regiment 47th is now bomber and "Gv"(former 455 BAP)
    The regiment is operating at Buturlinovka since 4 years ago, because Vorónezh airbase is in an eternal reconstruction
    AT Buturlibovka was based the 899 ShAP (Su-25) , was disbanded in 2008-9 , but was said that VVS wants to reopen about 2018-2020, once Su-34 retrun to Baltimore

    The Nº28 had an incident in Buturlinovka, overturned and is being repaired at Novosibirsk >>> http://russianplanes.net/id191328
    Nº 11 of Lipestk was repainted Nº32, transferred to 47 Gv.BAP for complete the regiment  >>> http://russianplanes.net/regs/RF-95844

    At Vorónezh is also the University of Aeronautical Engineering , that has some prototypes in a parking adjacent to the base of Baltimore included the 5th Su-34 prototype nº 46
    >>>  https://www.google.es/maps/@51.6235758,39.1601362,547m/data=!3m1!1e3

    Su-24MR numbers of Shatalovo are from 40 to 51 . Other planes/helicopters aren´t part of squadron, were there before 24´s
    Shatalovo could get a regiment of Su-34 if the total number for the VVS is arround 190-200

    The Il-20 , An-26, An-30 and other are not part of regiment or división, is other unit
    By 2008 , before reform of 2009 was part of Moscu Spacial Purpose command , as the 16 Army VVS, 4 y 5 Div PVO and other forces:
    5th Separate Long-Range Reconnaissance Aviation Squadron (5 ODRAE) (Il-20, An-72, An-30, An-26, Mi-8 ) (Voronezh - Baltimor, Voronezh Oblast)

    With Voronezh closed , these planes An-30 of Shatalovo could be part of 5 ORDAE (if this name remains)
    The older models should be decomisioned and also coud be more planes at Buturlinovka or other places.... temporaly deployed.... (4 years!!)
    Now could be a central subordinated unit ,or part of 8º DIV (ex 800th Airbase) HQ at Chkalovsk in Moscow where are other planes as Il-80/86, transport,etc



    -(159 IAP) 159th "Tallinnskiy" Fighter Aviation Regiment (Petrozavodsk, (Besovets airfield), Republic of Karelia)
    Equipment: 29 Sukhoi Su-27 "Flanker" (Including variants: 15 Su-27 (No.: 04, 06, 08, 14, 15, 19, 32, 33, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 54), 4 Su-27P (No.: 17, 36, 37, 41), 6 Su-27SM (No.: 01, 10, 73, 75, 76, 91), 1 Su-27UBP (No.: 90), 3 Su-27UB (No.: 65, 66, 71)) multirole jet fighter aircraft, 6 Sukhoi Su-35S "Flanker-E" (No.: 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59)

    Su-35:  50 to 59 (50 to 53 detached in Syria this year)
    Su-27P: 17 , 19 , 36 , 37 , 41 , 47  Su-27S decomisioned
    Su-27SM: 49 (ex-01) , 71 & 73 (must change) , 74 (ex-69) , 75 , 76 , 77 , 78 , 79 , 85 , 90 , 91
    UB`s OK
    159º should receive other couple of SU-35 (and also SU-30M2 ??) in december or the begining of next year, then one squadron with 35´s and other 27SM´s



    -(790 IAP) 790th Fighter Aviation Regiment (Khotilovo (Khotilovo airfield), Tver region)
    Equipment: 24 Mikoyan MiG-31 "Foxhound" (Including variants: 9 MiG-31D3 (No.: 25, 26, 30, 56, 58) and 15 MiG-31BM (No.: 31, 32, 33, 34, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 50, 51, 52, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, 62)) jet fighter-interceptor aircraft, 15 Sukhoi Su-27 "Flanker" (Including variants: 4 Su-27 (No.: 01, 17, 20, 42), 5 Su-27P (No.: 11, 12, 18, 23, 28), 4 Su-27SM (No.: 02, 03, 04, 05, 07, 32), 1 Su-27UBP (No.: 52), 1 Su-27UB (No.: 10)) multirole jet fighter aircraft

    The older Mig-31 dont fly since 2014. DZ´s as this five mentioned are decomisioned, B/BS used for modernization when necesary
    Confirmed 19 modernized ,16 "BSM" and 3 with refueling (32,51,40). Total ,probably 20 (4th BM)  because one plane of the 2015 planing has no photos, Nº40 only one photo in 2015 and seems in reserve.

    SU-27SM: 01 to 07 . Also 09 & 27 (ex-22 IAP), and other tree planes of 23 IAP ,must change number  (32 blue now 01)  >>> http://russianplanes.net/regs/RF-92411
    SU-27S : 17, 20  SU-27P 11, 12, 18, 23, 28, 42
    UB´s 10, 20, 52, 54 blue (ex-22 IAP, need repaint >>> http://russianplanes.net/id210959 ) , nº20 seems in reseve

    Once Su-27SM squadron is complete, not clear if Su-27S/P still fly. A second squadron should be SU-35
    I think this regiment will be dislocated in two regiments as 22 IAP, once VVS ends modernization of Mig-31 .Until now , nothing heard
    The Su-27 component of 790 IAP arrived from  Bezhetsk-Dorokhovo (Tver Oblast) , former 611 IAP , when that regiment was disbanded in 2009-2010


    -(14 Gv IAP) 14th Guards "Lenigradskiy" Fighter Aviation Regiment (Kursk (Vostochniy airfield), Kursk region)
    Equipment: 28 MiG-29 "Fulcrum" 24 MiG-29SMT (No.: 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32) and 4 MiG-29UBM (No.: 71, 72, 73, 74))  

    The airbase is/was known as Khalino . "Vostochniy" means is located "Eastern" Kursk, i think this is used to refer to the civil terminal that shares the airport
    This year the regiment is going to receive squadron of 12 Su-30SM and the next year is supposed other 8 planes.With 20 is enough for start the work as Sukhoi regiment
    Mig-29SMT could be relocated to south Russia or Armenia , as only have 6-7 years in service with VVS .Probably will receive maintenance/repairs/repaint in ARZ before to be handed over to a new base

    It is not "forming", it is working in Domna since 2009 (without the regiment name because of the "airbase" system reform),
    Restored the name&number of regiment last year , to retrun to the previous base in Step-Olovyannaya at Transbaikal Terrotory. Step(степь) means Steppe. Transbaikal is Krai(Territory/Border/March or Mark)

    Until the 2009 reform, the 799 RAP, based in Varfolomeyevka (Primorie Krai) had two squadrons
    With the reform, it joined with the "AirBase" 6988 AB of Khurba, but does not mean that the aircraft were transferred, in some ORBAT´s are placed SU-24MR at Khurba , but it is not true
    A squadron remained operational in Varfolomeyevka subordinate to Khurba 6988 AB

    In the satellite can be found about 30 aircraft in the base, half seems not used, but a squadron is operative >>  https://www.google.es/maps/@44.2646639,133.418862,520m/data=!3m1!1e3

    At least three. We could see borts 05, 06 and 07 ready for delivery in NAPO.

    There were 5. 05, 06, 07, 09, 10. All of them to Hurba. They received 01, 02, 03, 04 earlier this year.

    What happened to "8"? That confirms the military spokesman who said the delivery makes 50% of the planned years total. And previous article about the 100th Su-34 claimed that 18 were scheduled for this year.  

    There is not Nº08 in Khurba

    The 16 planes of 2016 deployed in 4 batchs are:
    01 , 02 , 03 , 04
    05 , 06 , 07 , 09 , 10
    11 , 12 , 14
    20 , 21 , 22 , 23

    The first batch of 2017 is:
    24 , 25 , 27 , 29

    In the Russian air forcé, who decide the tail numbers of the airplane is the chief of the airbase , the commander of the regiment
    Usually the numbres are from 01 to 99 , but sometimes there are also Nº 100 and higher, but is not usual
    In soviet times there were numbres of 3 digits, of course, USSR have a lot of thousends of planes

    There is a unwritten "tradition" in RuAF/Soviet AF ,  by which, the tail number of the aircraft in which the pilot died in accident is written off
    Also , of course, no one pilot would fly with number Nº 13 in his plane

    For example:
    Su-27SM of Lipestk had numbers: 02 ,  03 , 04  ,06 , 07
    Now , Su-35 of Lipestk have numbers: 01 , 02 , 03 , 04 , 06 , 07
    There is not figthers with Nº05 at Lipestk as it seems

    In the same way:
    Numbers of Su-27SM of Vladivostok were: 20 , 21 , 24-33 (no 22 & 23)
    However , this time the Su-35 , there is Nº 23 , not sure why this changes the "tradition"

    That 10 Su-35S at the Testing Center worry me unless they are focused on new weapons testing.

    10 Su-35 were received in 2011-12 but several of those were transferred to Lipestk. Today 6 based in Akhtubinsk and 6 in Lipetsk, 24 in Dzemgi, 12 in Vladivostok and 10 in Besovets (with 4 deployed in Siria)
    Sometimes, planes of other bases go to Lipestk or Aktubisnsk for trials or training
    For example, 01 and 02 of Dzemgi were at Lipestk for training of chinese pilots , but this do not means the airplanes have been transfeerd
    Once China gets its 4 first Su-35 , 01 and 02 returned to Dzemgi

    The airplanes based at Akhtubisnk should have a symbol like this under the wings or near the munbers:

    I have a question about camouflage. Some of the aircrafts received black camo rather than older sky blue. But then again they went back to light sky blue from black! Why is that?

    Not black, rather grey. Its detractors call it "eggplant grey". This was an idea from former minister of defence Serdyukov, to paint all aircraft (including helicopters) that color. Fortunately, Serdyukov was sacked and then returned to more traditional colors.

    And what was the reason behind that color? I know when it was chosen but what was the reason?

    The top surface is dark and the lower surface is light blue...

    From the ground you look up at a light blue surface... which matches the sky.

    From above you look down at a dark coloured surface which should be difficult to see against a dark ground surface... especially at night.

    Obviously not so effective if over water or snow...

    But the results aren't that effective I assume! I mean they are back at light blue camo again.....

    Hi Guys!

    It is my first post on this forum, so I say hello to you.

    I have a question - what is the current structure of the Long Range Aviation (Командование дальней авиации)?

    Could you provide me with some information?

    Is it based on Army-Division-Regiment structure or Airbase structure?

    Have not seen all units reverting to previous names but:

    22nd Guards Aviation Division - Engels

    - ? Guards Aviation Regiment - Engels (Tu-160 / M)
    - ? Guards Aviation Regiment - Engels (Tu-95MS / MSM)
    - 52nd Guards Aviation Regiment - Shaykovka / Olenegorsk (Tu-22M3)

    326th Guards Aviation Division - Ukrainka

    - ? Guards Aviation Regiment - Ukrainka (Tu-95MS)
    - ? Guards Aviation Regiment - Ukrainka (Tu-95MS)
    - ? Guards Aviation Regiment - Beleya (Tu-22M3)

    Would assume all of the Regiments are using their previous numbers before the Airbase concept was switched to.

    EDIT:

    Regiments were 121st Engels (Tu160) and 184th Engels (Tu95)
    Regiments for Ukrainka were 182nd and 79th (Tu95)
    Regiment for Beleya was the 200th.

    Thank you so much Franco.

    So I presume that for example designation 6950 Airbase (Engels) is already obsolete?

    Can't tell you that for sure. Most of the other units have reverted to their previous names... that one specifically not sure.

    6950 AB = División (1st class). The second class are similar to a brigade , An "Air Base" unit can have one or several airfields
    For example , 72 AB in Kaliningrad has several squadrons in several airfields (Chernyakhovsk , Khabrovo,Donskoye):
    -squadron of antisubmarine helicopters
    -squadron of transport helicopters
    -squadron of transport airplanes
    -squadron of Su-24M
    -squadron of Su-27P
    This is a Brigade type unit
    In all cases squadrons come from former regiments , after the cuts in 2008
    Now are forming a new squadron of Su-30SM that with the Su-24M squadron will restore the regiment 4 OMShAP
    Also the 689 IAP shoud be restored , adding other Su-27 squadron when Chakalovsk will be reopened in 2018 ?? after 6 years of works
    When the regiments will be restored , 72 will become a division

    Right now the VKS is in the process of restructuring the "Air Base" system (AB) to the system of divisions, recovering the old numbers of the regiments

    The numbers it is recovering or should be recovered from today to 2020 should be:

    37º ARMY VKS LONG RANGE AVIATION

    #22 HEAVY BOMBER AIR DIVISION (HQ: Engels/Sarátov Oblast)
    >121 TBAP (Engels/Sarátov Oblast):  Tu-160M
    >184 TBAP (Engels/Sarátov Oblast):  Tu-95MS
    >52 TBAP (Shaykovka/Kaluga Oblast):  Tu-22M3

    #326 HEAVY BOMBER AIR DIVISION (HQ: Seryshevo-2,Ukrainka/Amur Oblast)
    >79 TBAP (Seryshevo-2,Ukrainka/Amur Oblast):  Tu-95MS
    >182 TBAP (Seryshevo-2,Ukrainka/Amur Oblast):  Tu-95MS
    >200 TBAP (Belaya/Irkutsk Oblast):  Tu-22M3 , Tu-22MR

    >203 OAPSZ (Dyaglievo-Ryazan):  Il-78M


    About the other two airfields:
    840 TBAP (Tu-22M3) (Sol’tsy, Novgorod Oblast) in the West
    444 TBAP (Tu-22M3) (Ussuriysk - Vozdvizhenka, Primorsky Kray) in the East
    These regiments were disbanded and the airplanes recicled

    Aboot the Navy
    The 40 ORDAP (Olenya/Múrmansk Oblast) was transferred to Long Range ten yers ago , but is inactive , tha airplanes has not seen in fligth since several years ago  , and is not clear if the bombers will be modernized and return to service again.
    The squadron at Sovetskaya Gavan (Pacific) was disbanded and the aorplanes are being recicled
