    please any suggestions are welcome

    thank you

    I might dig out World Air Power Journal volume 3 later and post here as it's got the numbers of aircraft used by the PVO/ VVS/ Navy in 1990 so I could compare to post 65. That issue is worth a buy as it's got orders of battle for the Warsaw Pact Countries in that year.

    *Edit*

    F*ck it, I'll do it now.

    According to this, the PVO in 1990 had

    MiG-21bis- 40
    MiG-23mf/ML- 900

    MiG-25M- 350
    Su21- 475
    Su27- 150
    Tu-28- 15
    Il76- 12
    Tu-126- 3

    Very impressive numbers in hindsight.

    VVS had:
    Su-24 450
    TU95 Bear B/C 70
    TU95 G 40
    Tu142 50
    Tu160 12
    Tu22 120
    Tu16 220
    Tu26 175
    MiG21PFMA/SMB/bis- 200
    MiG 23MF/ML- 875

    MiG29- 450
    Su-27- 135
    MiG21PFMA/SMB/bis (ground attack)- 130
    MiG 25- 45
    MiG 27- 855
    Su 7- 50
    Su 17- 700
    Su24 (ground attack)- 300
    SU25- 225

    mya 4- 40
    Tu16- 20
    Il78- 40

    MiG 21R= 60
    MiG 25- 130
    Su 17- 150
    Su 24- 100
    Yak 28- 160

    I'll add the rest later.
