    One AvGr can range from a old Regiment size(several Sq) and down to less than a Squadron size.
    The list state which type of units, but not how many.

    The old Soviet-style-four-level Command hierarchy: Air Army/Air Division/Air Regiments/Squadron, has been abolished in favor of a more streamlined: three-level structure Operational Command, Air Base(AvB), Squadron(AvGr).
    Is it then possible to deduce (using other sources than just that article) how many squadrons of what type of AC each Avb has? How frequent are situations where one AvB has two or more squadrons of the same type of plane?

      Well i tried before. It is not easy research.
      It gets tricky when you get those Sq of older Su-27S/P and same with older Mig-29.. hard to tell just how many there are still in service.
      Thanks

          And such a nice looker it is
          Grudgingly I have to agree, even though the paint scheme makes me want to throw up.

          I do like how Hip genes are still visible in there somewhere though.

            Is it me - or is the MiG-29 slowly morphing into a Su-27 ????

              So they have Pilot , Co-Pilot and Flight Engineer/NAvigator ? 3 Man cockpit or 4 ?

              The Il-476 is a significantly modernized variant of the Il-76 Candid transport plane, featuring a new wing, fully-digital flight control system, new cockpit with advanced digital displays and PS-90A-76 turbofans with improved fuel efficiency, Russian aerospace holding United Aircraft Corporation says.

                  So why exactly is there a Ju-87 at Zhukovsky? Monino is pretty far away. Some kind of project getting it airworthy going on?

                  By the way, when hotlinking images from RP.net in many cases its advisable to use the smaller 640x480v versions, like this:


                  Just change the .jpg.jpg ending to .jpg-640.jpg - it's better for forum viewing. Then add URL to RP page underneath so people can access the full resolution image and the rest of the information. It's neater that way (and moderators tend to not like huge photos). Just a suggestion.

                  EDIT:
                  The "Ju-87" seems to be flying and it's a 3:4 replica. I had no idea about this aircraft. It's registered as RA-0565C:

                        Very interesting- the DIRCM equipment has been fitted to at least two Mi-8s.
                        Not just for high official use perhaps?

                              Interesting.... Mi-8MTV from Ulan Ude - with solid nose, but no starboard sliding door and raised cabin heater.

                                      Agreed. Nice paint.

                                      So what is the external difference between the Il-476 and Il-76?
                                      I mean bar the new engines ofcource.
                                      Thanks

                                        there may easely be other differences but a quick glance told me the top of the tail has two differences. One is the rudder, which on il76 seems a tiny bit shorter, and on il476 goes all the way to the top. The other is on the leading edge of the vertical stabilizator. the curve of it, for some reason, curves forward in the last 10-20 cm before the top end. That is present on both models. But on il476 the length of that portion of the leading edge seems a bit longer.

                                          Both those differences are related, and aren't actually differences at all. It's just the Il-476 on this picture has the horizontal stabiliser set to full down trim (trimming is by moving the horizontal stabiliser in its entirety).

                                          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tr...stabiliser.JPG

                                          But it does have a much nicer *paint job* than either the Y-20 or An-70, I'll give you that
