    Su-34
    Su-24 (except Naval Aviation)
    Su-25
    MiG-29/35 (except Naval Aviation)

    There is some case where I think the information may not be complete:

    Su-27/30/33/35 in the case of the Su-27 and Su-33 (Naval Aviation)

    There is not information:

    On this part I have the feeling that the numbers are a little short still. It seems to me that we are missing something still. About the rest the numbers seem complete.

    As example in the case of the Il-38 russianplanes says they are 25 flying(?) and 17 in storage(?).

    Those are for active aircraft, not those in storage or spares. As for the Il-38, World Military Balance has 22 while the World Air Forces has 20. I base mine on something I read a few years back when they started the -38N upgrades, that at that point only 8-10 -38's were still operational. Since then 7-8 have been rebuilt.

    World Military Balance=World Air Forces= Western shit
    The only way is to look videos and pictures with real airplanes, know the serial numbers , registration , tail numbers , etc...
    For example, they say 135 or 150 MiG-31 in Airforce, and the real number is about 106

    Russianplanes is outdated in some cases. The data in the tables does not correspond with actual photos in a lot of airplanes


    Su-24M: 55 in 4 squadrons:Chelyabisnk(2) Marinovka(1), Gvardeyskoye-Simferopol(1)  and several at Lípetsk-Akhtubisnk
    Also there are one squadron of Su-24M2 in Khurba still working, while the second squadron of Su-34 is in conversión period
    Su-24MR: 50 in 4 squadrons: Shatalovo,Marnovka,Chelyabisnk,Varfolomeyevka, and a couple Lipets.Akhtunick


    STRATEGIC BOMBERS
    Tu-160 16
    Tu-95 about 50 (Engels 18 , Ukrainka about 30 , and a couple for training at Ryazan)
    Tu-22M3 about 55 (Shaikovka about 24 , Belaya About 30 and a couple for training at Ryazan)

    NAVY
    Su-33(Su-27K): 20 at Severomorsk of 26 serial Su-33 made.
    Su-27P/UB: 13 (10P+3UB) at Chernyakhovsk
    Su-24M/MR: 48 in 4 squadrons (30 M and 18 MR). Also there are more in the shelters of Monchegorsk and Chernyakhovsk)
    MiG-31: 2 squadrons about 25-28 at Monchegorsk and Yelizovo

    Il-38 about 20 (Severomorsk 7-8 , Yelizovo 5-6 , Nikolayevka 5-6 , Yeisk 2) , 8 of them modernized to Il-38N (2 each base). Also are several in Pushkin ARZ Nº20 waiting for modernization.

    It would be very interesting if you can include the numbers like in the previous comments, including also the isolate units in training schools or used for investigation. Also just curious about which would be the numbers of the MiG-29 of the Navy. To include the numbers makes always more exact the data, and more solid the comments.

    As example, I think your data about the Il-38 with the aircrafts numbered, will be very coincident by the end with the data of Russianplanes.net. This kind of details help to validate your data as source to take into account.

    Taking into account the last comments I have the impression that in this topic we are missing still some active units of:

    Su-27
    Tu-22

    For the rest we have data here for aircrafts in active service I can agree with.

    Several airplanes has different numbers in the tail and in the landing gear, so probably , numbers have been changed when the airplanes chaged of airbase
    The list of bombers has about 2 years, so probably a few modernized/repaired bombers received since 2016 can be added to the list, and others can be deleted for accicdents.




    ABOUT NAVY
    The numbers of MiG-29 K/KUB are well known:
    20 MiG-29K 30-49 (Nº47 lost in Syria and Nº41 damaged in a landing)

    About Su-27 in Navy , today there are only one squadron in Kaliningrad-Chernyakhovsk
    A couple of airplanes just received after repairs in late 2017, like this https://russianplanes.net/regs/RF-33753  , bring the total to 10 Su-27P (Nº90-99) and 3 Su-27UB (Nº100-102)
    The rest of airplanes of old 689 regiment was abandoned/canibalized in Chkalovsk-Kaliningrad in 2012 and today are derrelictic , waiting for scrap
    https://www.google.es/maps/@54.7730296,20.403527,219m/data=!3m1!1e3
    In this video you can see the real state of the airplanes in Chkalovsk , that some people count as "active" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObNsKw3JEYA


    In the case of Il-38 , the number of units of airplanes in fligth could be like that:

    SEVEROMORSK about 8:  Nº11 Nº15 (modernized, in yellow) and 06 , 09 , 12 , 14 , 16 , 18
    Some of not modernized Il-38 of North Fleet have a POLAR BEAR painted:

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cute_KRWEAAtjKW.jpg

    YELIZOVO about 6: Nº24 , Nº78 (modernized, in yellow)and  Nº01 , 05 , 06 , 07
    The not modernized Il-38 of Yelizovo has a shield with an eagle that has a submarine in the hands:
    https://russianplanes.net/images/to148000/147547.jpg
    However some Il-38 have changed of airbase and could have any with the Nikolayevka shield at Yelizovo
    The modernized Il-38N of Yelizovo has receive a new emblem with the eagle and submarine, without shield: https://russianplanes.net/images/to213000/212789.jpg

    NIKOLAYEVKA about 6: Nº23 , Nº27 (modernized , in yellow) and Nº 25 and 70 at least , posibly also Nº20 and Nº21, there are very few photos of this airbase
    The not modernized has painted a shield with the head of a tiger with a submarine in the mouth:
    https://russianplanes.net/images/to82000/081442.jpg
    http://photos.wikimapia.org/p/00/05/49/16/43_full.jpg

    YEISK are the modernized : Nº19 and Nº22 (in yellow numbers). Also there are a couple older IL-38 in the sediment

    Also, always you can find there are a couple in Phuskin (ARZ 20) , waiting for modernization or repairs

    If you use satellite:
    SEVEROMORSK-3: You can find 22 "Flankers" (2 Su-30,2 Su-27UB, 18 Su.33) , 15 MiG-29K , 2 Il-20PT and one Il-22 at north and other 6 Il-38N, included the two modernized. There are airplanes in operation, so probably not all are in this satellite capture.Other airplanes used to go to Yeisk, Saki, etc... or Pushkin for repairs/modernization
    https://www.google.com/maps/@68.8773289,33.7299971,417m/data=!3m1!1e3
    In north Fleet also are 6 Il-38 stored in SEVEROMORSK-1 (Mixed with other 2 Il-20PT and one Il-22)
    https://www.google.com/maps/@69.0277194,33.4207434,545m/data=!3m1!1e3

    YELIZOVO:
    You can see 8 in the parking zone, included the two modernized (probably a couple of them in the left bottom corner do not fly)
    https://www.google.com/maps/@69.0277194,33.4207434,545m/data=!3m1!1e3

    NIKOLAYEVKA
    You can see one Il-20 at the bottom, 5 Il-38 (included 2 modernized) and a 6th Il-38 in tech zone. In the north, other 9 Il-38 in the sediment.

    Then In the refered to the Il-38, it would be 22 + a couple undefined units in Yeisk.

    Russianplanes.net also include the 22 you numbered as "flying" plus these 3 for a total of 25:

    https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/34746
    https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/34767 (to mix not with this one that is in the 22 that you numbered: https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/33888)
    https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/35049

    It is possible that these units be the undefined units in Yeisk? In overallterms is a high level of agreement.

    Can you also number the units of the Navy of the Su-24, MiG-25/31 and Tu-95/142 that you commented before? It would complete the view about the combat aircrafts in active service. Thank you very much.

    Later, in another post I will comment something more about the Su-27 and the Tu-22.

    Russianplanes.net also include the 22 you numbered as "flying" plus these 3 for a total of 25:

    https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/34746
    https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/34767 (to mix not with this one that is in the 22 that you numbered: https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/33888)
    https://russianplanes.net/reginfo/35049

    It is possible that these units be the undefined units in Yeisk? In overallterms is a high level of agreement.

    Can you also number the units of the Navy of the Su-24, MiG-25/31 and Tu-95/142 that you commented before? It would complete the view about the combat aircrafts in active service. Thank you very much.

    Later, in another post I will comment something more about the Su-27 and the Tu-22.

    No, russianplanes is outdated with some planes
    There are potos of 20 airplanes active and I can supose other two in Nikolayevka after see old satellite images with more Il-38 in the sediment.
    Several airplanes have been used for modernization or retrun to active service
    I have seen potos of Nikolayevka with one Il-38 without emblem and the tail number os not visible. This must be one of refered as "in reserve" in russianplanes

    Russianpoanes gives 12 airplanes "in storage" at Nilolakevka and one in Yelizovo , but today there are only 9 at Nikolayevka and perhaps 2 in Yelizovo
    Also some of the active airplanes of Yelizovo come from Nikolayevka , as Nº05 and Nº06

    About the three airplanes you say and other three are in NORTH FLEET , in storage at SEVEROMORSK-1 since the regiment was reduced to squadron
    Russianplanes sais "in fligth" several airplanes without any photo in North Fleet ( SF / Сф): at least 02 , 07 , 10 , 20 , 21 are stored in Severomorsk-1 since 2008-2009

    In Yeisk there was two airplanes:
    Nº22 was modernized and Nº08 was canibalized https://russianplanes.net/id168951 and replaced by modernized Nº19
    Yeisk , as other bases has been cleaned of junk and you can see here the two modernized and the other without engines in a side of the runways
    https://yandex.com/maps/10993/yesk/?l=sat%2Cskl&ll=38.242364%2C46.685080&z=18
    The matter Il-38 and other airplanes of pacific and north fleets uses to fly to Yeisk, and that can be shown in satellites https://russianplanes.net/id181473


    The number "in active" is as much 2 Yeisk (19,22) 8 North (11,15+06,09,12,14,16,18 this last in ARZ 20 for repairs/moderniation) and 12 in Pacific (24,24,27,78+01,05,06,07,27,70,76 and other unidentified)
    Nº76 passed repairs in Knevichi ARZ 153 and returned service, despite has not more photos,porbably is at Nikolayevka

    In reserve are 6 in Severomorsk-1 and 9 in Nikolayevka Also 2 in Yelizovo(probably to discard)
    Also one stored in Puskhin for many years (nº71), probably for service the rapair plant and other canibalized in Yeisk.

    .

    The MiG-31 transferred to the Navy:

    Monchegorsk: received the first 10 airplanes Nº1-10 in 2010-2011 (and this included the tree first BM´s based at Kotlas in 2009 Nº12,52 and 79 that were trasnferred when Kotlas was closed, and renumbered). Other soruces say that there is also Nº12 but the only photo of Nº12 with the Nº52 was in 2009 over Kotlas
    In 2013 Monchegorsk also received Nº14,15 and 16 from ARZ 514

    Yelizovo: There was 36 MiG-31 of the old versions and DZ´s numbered fron 01 to 40. Only are used one squadron, rotating aircraft or repalce losses. Also 10 ordered to scrap.
    In the last years habe been used (and the most have received registration): 18 , 19 , 23 , 24, 26 , 27 , 28 , 29 , 30 , 31 , 37 , 40
    Nº01 and 02 was also used recently but it is not clear is squadron has 12 or 14 with this two now in maintenance.

    Aboyt the Su-24 is not easy because there are a lot of suplus Su-24, Some Su-24 of Morozovsk or Khurba have been moved to Monchegorsk , Marinovka and Cheyabinsk. Repairs plant dont stop of repair Su-24 despite are going to be retired soon, and every year a lot of airplanes have rotation.
    Also there are more airplanes in Minchegorsk and Chernyakhovks, many in the shelters

    In Monchegrosk two Squadrons:
    Su-24M 36, 37 , 38 , 39 , 42 , 44 , 45, 46, 47 , 49 , 55 , 56
    Su-24MR 19 , 21 , 22 , 23 , 26 , 27 , 28 , 29 , 30 , 31 , 33 , 35

    In Chernyakhovsk I have this numbers, not all used rigth now, inlcuded one (Nº??) crahed in Latakia
    01 , 02 , 03 , 04 , 05 , 06 , 07 , 08 , 09 , 47 , 55  , 58 , 61 , 67

    Saki decomisioned older Su-24 and received two batch of 3 Su-24M:
    Su-24M 44 , 46 , 49 , ?? , ??  ??
    Su-24MR  15 , 16 , 30 , 31 , 33 , 34


    About Tu-142
    There are 18 at Fedotovo, 17 at Sovetskaya Gavan, included at least 6MR in each base, and also half a dozen in ARZ 325 of Taganrog
    I have numbers and photos of more than 30 included 14 of the Pacific, but I cannot assure what plane is in service and what not, becuse are repaired and rotate in the regiments
    The squadrons of big airplanes have 8 and 9 in the case of big transports, so at least are 8+6MR in each airbase , of pherhaps two squadrons of 8 mixed.
    When I have more time I will revise the Tu-142

    Thank you, interesting, it will be interesting to continue reading about the Tu-142. Between the most credible numbers I saw it were 32 active and 11 in the reserve, not far of the 18+17+halfdozen that you commented.

    I had a pending comment about the Tu-22 and the Su-27. In overall terms I have the impression that still we are missing some unit active.



    Would you elaborate a little about the most recent units of Tu-22 that replaced their Tu-22 or have been eliminated including all the branches?



    After reading about the presence of the Su-27 in the Russian Navy, I have the impression that the new Su-30 can in fact replace the Su-27 instead of the Su-24.

    Would you elaborate a little more about the cases of the Su-27 and the MiG-29 in the following cases? Officially there is some Su-27 or MiG-29A in active service that can be numbered in these bases?


    Su-27:

    Hello:
    No, the Tu-142 only are 41 airframes remaining as much, but at least several airplanes in Fedotovo are canibalized , so are not in service.
    Is easy to find with any satellite page.Only two bases with 35 airframes and one repair plant with several waiting for reapirs, in reserve, or used for parts
    In the Pacific fleet I only have 14 photos. In the satellite there are 3 in diferent parking zone probably unused.

    About the IL-38 I have revised older satellite images
    By 2014 there was:
    7 in active Severomorsk-3 included the first modernized and other 12 in Severomorsk-2 in storage (while Severomorsk-1 was in overhaul)
    5 in Nikolayevka in active and 11 in storage. Also one in Knevichi waiting repairs (probably by  the date is Nº76)
    2 in Yelizovo active (Nº01 and Nº07) and other 2 canibalized without engines, that today continue there
    So several have been taken from the reserve of Severomorsk and Nikolayevka for the modernization, and several other have been scarped after canibalized and take parts
    Yelizovo have received 4 airplanes, 2 modernized and other 2 from Nikolayevka(05 and 06).


    The list of Tu-22 is made mainly with rusianplanes photos. I only can say the planes that fly are the planes on the list. There are not more that 60 airframes nowadays in all active bases
    30 were ordered for modernization, but I don know which because there is not information of that
    Older units at Vodzvizhenka , Sovetskaya Gavan were disbanded 10 yeras ago, some airplanes transferred and the airplanes not useful were stripped or simply vandalized, in some cases are falling to pieces under the sun. You can see here https://www.urbanghostsmedia.com/2011/09/post-soviet-aircraft-graveyard-discovered-abandoned-east-russian-air-base/

    The Su-30 replaces Su-24 in the Navy. Are for Naval assault regiments, like 43 OMShAP of Saki, together with Su-24 , the same will happen with 4 OMShAP in Chernyakhovsk and later with Monchegorsk in North Fleet. Probably a 4th regiment of Su-30SM will be raised in Pacific Fleet in several yeras
    The two Su-30SM (Nº22 and 23) of Severomorsk 3 are probably "two seaters" for 279 KIAP that will replace or complete the two Su-27UB Nº20 and Nº21

    The navy only operated Su-27K(Su-33).
    The regiment of Kaliningrad always was part or air defence despite was under the operative command of Kanilingrad Spacial Military District betwwen 1997 and 2008 , 689 IAP never had the colours and symbols of Navy painted until 2015 and probably this year will be rebuilt as regiment again with more Su-27P or modernized.
    In the past, in Soviet times ,the Navy also operated several units of MiG-29

    Not undrestand what you ask exactly about Kaliningrad, Dzemgi and Millerovo. It is explained enough and I have updated the list of page nº2 of this topic with current active airplanes
    About Su-27 , if you referns to Su-27S , in 2017 only remains in fligth one in Khotilovo (Nº20) , just repaired last year and it is not sure if one of two more in Kubinka (Nº01 and 06) after receive several Su-30SM
    About "MiG-29A" , if you refers to 9.12A only 3 in Astrakhan Nº02, 03 , and 04 , and other in Yerevan Nº15 (ex-Nº05 of Astrakhan) Registrations RF-92178-81

    The data of 32 active and 11 in the reserve (for Tu-95/142, variant not specified in the source) come also from russianplanes.net, from this part of the web:

    https://russianplanes.net/airline/Russia_(USSR)_-_NAVY

    This part of the web for the different owners and operators (airlines,...), is a little less complete and less updated, also the level of the information for different aircrafts is different, depending of their attention to the different models, but some data can be interesting.

    Do you know how many Tu-22 were in these two bases disbanded 10 years ago?


    In the refered to the question about the 3 concrete bases, it was to know if it would be some detail more about the aircrafts commented, if you wold know their numbers or something else. The quotes are just from your comments in the page 2 and 3 of this topic.


    Until recently I tracked more the overall numbers than the concrete units, doing it with detail, but is also interesting to track the units by the numerical reference, and in the comments where the units are numbered tend to be some unit more than in the resumes. I liked them specially.
