    Now the airbase received a second squadron of MiG-31BM, so it was split into a fighter regiment with two squadrons of MiG.31BM (174th IAP), leaving the 98th SAP with the squadrons of Su-24M and Su-24MR. The Su-34 is expected to arrive as a replacement for the Su-24.

    The defense ministry confirms on its website that the Pushlkn helicopter regiment recovered its old name:

    https://structure.mil.ru/structure/forces/navy/news/more.htm?id=12328185@egNews
    The readiness of personnel, weapons and military equipment for the new academic year in the 332 separate helicopter regiment in Pushkin was reported to the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Lieutenant General Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, by his commander, Colonel Rashid Halimov.

    On behalf of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, the Deputy Minister inspected the regiment's weapons and military equipment, as well as the simulator complex being built, and discussed with the builders and representatives of the military-industrial complex the timing of the completion of construction and installation work, as well as the commissioning of flight simulators for Mi-helicopters. 28N and Mi-8.

    332th Helicopter regiment was based at Pribylovo (airfield Glebychevo)
    With the cuts, the regiment was absorved about 2009 in the 549th Airbase in Pushkin, until late 2016 or 2017, that the regiment was restored  


    Now, the 332º OVP (otdel'nyy vertoletnyy polk = separate helicopter regiment)  has the HQ in Leninrgrad city, at the Pushkin airfield,:

    1ºAE: Mi-28 (currently has 16 -12 Mi-28N and 4 Mi-28UB- the normal for a suuadron are 20 helicopters in 5 "zveno" of 4 each)
    2ºAE: Mi-8MTV-5 (currently 18, wait for complete until 20)
    detachment of Mi-35M (the usual probably are 8 Mi-35M in 2 "zveno" of 4 each, but currenly has 6 Mi-35M and 2 Mi-24P)

    3º AE at Prybilovo (Airfield Glebychevo), near the Finnish border
    currently has 8 Mi-24P and 12 Mi-8MT (old soviet hardware)
    This squadron are for the service of peace forces of UN- The helicopters of this squadron are painted in white for this purpose
    The airfield is also often used to store helicopters without use or waiting for repairs at 419º ARZ

    Meanwhile, at the Iturup airfield (also called Yasny), there is a parking lot for a detachment of planes from the 11th Air Army. On this occasion the Su-30SM of Domna (120º IAP) are deployed,

    RF Armed Forces in the Western Military District according to the CNA report (Centar Naval Analyzes https://www.cna.org/)

    https://colonelcassad.livejournal.com/6899017.html

    Well, it has some bugs, like calling Pushkin's regiment 549th instead of 332nd.
    Also missing in the 6th Army VVSiPVO a squadron from the 33rd Transport Regiment in Vladimir in addition to the Gromovo base, also from the 33rd Regiment
    Perhaps a glance at Russian wikipedia could have prevented these errors and a few more.

    Here is the 6th Air Army VVSiPVO
    Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) bases (Locations, units & equipment) - Page 6 28978410

    Equipament of ZPR Regiments
    Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) bases (Locations, units & equipment) - Page 6 28983610

    Kaliningrad units, including air component
    Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) bases (Locations, units & equipment) - Page 6 28997110


    About Kaliningrad, finally the Division was called 34º Composite Division
    https://sudact.ru/regular/
    according to the instructions of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces from DD.MM.YYYY 72 AVB, referred to as military unit 30866 of the city of Kaliningrad, was reorganized into a division referred to as military unit 32312 and three regiments: military unit 77100, military unit 32497, military unit 30866 of the city of Chernyakhovsk - formed from January 1, 2019

    Commander of the Western Military District from DD.MM.YGGGg. № and in order to improve the organizational and staff structure of the formations and military units of the Baltic Fleet, directive D-06 was issued, according to which it was determined to carry out organizational and staff activities in 2018 until DD.MM.YYYY, namely to form the management of the 34th mixed aviation division , 689 Fighter Aviation Regiment, to reorganize 72 air base into 4 mixed aviation regiment and 396 mixed aviation regiment, appoint a military unit - the formation of the 34 mixed aviation division - 72 air base of the Baltic Fleet, form the division on the funds of 72 air base.


    So at the moment there are three regiments in the 34th Composite Division:

    689th IAP with two Su-27P squadrons

    4th SAP:
    - 1st AE Su-24M,
    - 2nd AE Su-24MR, Su-30SM

    396th SAP:
    - 1st AE Ka-27M / PS / PL, Ka-29
    - 2nd AE Mi-24P / Mi-24V
    - 3rd AE: Mi-8, An-26, Tu-134

    4º SAP should receive more Su-30SM for complete two squadrons and become Marine Assault Regiment
    396º should receive more shipborne helicopters , as Ka-27M, Ka-29 and Ka-52K and become helicopter regiment
    Finally , An-26, Tu-134 and Mi-8 will become a intependent mixed transport squadron

    Thanks for sharing, I do wonder if the 689th will ever get Su-35s, doesn't seem too illogical for the Navy to use them as well for land based work?

    689th regiment is newly formed, with the majority of novice pilots. It makes no sense to equip them with Su-35s now, the Su-27 is enough to have experience.
    Other regiments such as the 38th in Sevastopol, formed in 2015, will likely receive the Su-35s earlier.
    I don't think any newly formed regiment will receive new material like the Su-35 for 10 years.

    At the moment it was announced that the next regiment to receive the Su-35 is the 31 IAP in Millerovo, which will surely transfer its Su-30SMs to the Navy, either in Saki, or in Kaliningrad, to complete those regiments with Su-30SMs.

    Ah fair enough and yes they'll be the first Su-35s allocated to the Southern MD?

    On another note, I guess an advantage of procuring Su-35s is that for pilots already trained on the Su-27, there won't be a significant difference so the conversion time won't be as long as if another type was being bought in. Rather like training current F-15C crews on the EX.

    A few mooted changes

    https://www.scramble.nl/military-news/news-from-russia

    Hot news from Russia
    From reliable sources, Scramble has obtained information that the Voyenno Vozdushnyye Sily (VVS, Russian Air Force) has decided on the modernization of some of its inventory.

    The 21st Composite Aviation Division of the Central Military District, based at Perm/Bolshoye Savino (Sokol) is one of the first.

    The 21st CAD is currently flying the MiG-31B/D3/BM, and will switch to the Sukhoi Su-34M and MiG-31BM. The transition will gradually take place, but is expected to be completed by 2024. These MiG-31BMs can be armed with the 2000 km range Kh-47M2 Kinzhal ALBM (air-launched ballistic missile)

    The 2nd Frontal Bomber Aviation Regiment , based at Chelyabinsk-Shagol, will see a transition from their faithful Sukhoi Su-24M to the Sukhoi-34. Initially only the reconnaissance unit (flying the Su-24MR) will switch to the Su-34, later on the other two units of the regiment will change their Su-24s for Su-34Ms.

    Finally a decision was made that the 712th Fighter Aviation Regiment, based at Kansk-Yuzhiny, will be fully equipped with the MiG-31BM.

    The 2nd has already switched out their Su-24M's for Su-34's. Their Su-24MR's are now starting to switch out. In fact some of their Su-34's have started upgrading to the Su-34NOV standard which gives improved ground attack and fighter capabilities. Kansk is already switched over to the Mig-31BM and Bolshoye Savino is partially.

    Hot, very hot  lol!

    scramble ???  attack

    The 21st Composite Aviation Division of the Central Military District, based at Perm/Bolshoye Savino (Sokol)


    The 21st Air Division has its headquarters at Shagol Airfield in Chelyabisnk

    The 21st CAD is currently flying the MiG-31B/D3/BM, and will switch to the Sukhoi Su-34M and MiG-31BM. The transition will gradually take place, but is expected to be completed by 2024.


    21º Air Division only has MiG-31BM. This nonsense is writen with these same words in Russian wikipedia

    All the MG-31B were modernized to BM between 2008 and 2013
    The only unit that still has MiG-31DZ in service is Yelizovo

    The 2nd Frontal Bomber Aviation Regiment , based at Chelyabinsk-Shagol, will see a transition from their faithful Sukhoi Su-24M to the Sukhoi-34. Initially only the reconnaissance unit (flying the Su-24MR) will switch to the Su-34, later on the other two units of the regiment will change their Su-24s for Su-34Ms.


    the two squadrons of Su-24M of Shagol were replaced by Su-34 between 2018 and 2020

    Su-24MR is still in service but could be replaced by Su-34NVO (with recon pods), starting this year

    The MiG-31BM program ended in 2018 for the Air Force

    The four regiments  were full completed betwwen 2011 and 2018. Total 116 airplanes (including training center), 5 of them lost

    Monchegorsk was completed in 2020 with the second MiG-31BM squadron.Other 24
    Only Yelizovo need to be completed, Has 4 MiG-31BM for the moment
    With known data/images 144 MiG-31BM were deployed to the combat units between 2008 and 2020

    712º of Kansk was rearmed with 24 MiG-31BM type 28 (with refueling probe) between 2011 and 2013
    After lost 3 , in 2018 received 4 aditional MiG-31BM type 58 or78 (without refueling), then has one more than necesary
    Because the first airplanes were received 10 years ago, now are passing repairs, it is a mistake of the press that regiment are not complete its MiG-31BM inventory

    It is announced that 712º will receive a third squadron of MiG-31K, as Monchegorsk and Yelizovo.
    It would be good if 764º in Perm also received a third squadron of MiG-31K, the problem is that it is not clear that there are enough MiG-31DZ in storage, if it is that all MiG-31K have a refueling probe
