Largest Siberian Air Base

Posted on September 3, 2014 by team


This air base is the largest in Siberia, Russia. Here they have interceptors MiG-31BM and they previously had Su-15TM, MiG-15, MiG-17.

Air base 6979 is a so-called air group, now. It used to be named after a guards air regiment, 712, that fought at the time of Great Patriotic War – initially in I-16 fighters, later – in La-5. From the mid 1980s to 1994 the airfield was used by a separate aviation rescue detachment that had An-12BP, Mi-8T, and a Tupolev amphibian aerosleigh in service.
