This changed in 1982. The old MiG-21SM Fishbed-J fighter bombers were replaced with modern and factory fresh Su-17M4 Fitter-K airplanes. So they became the Soviet Air Force of the Western Group of Forces most advanced fighter-bomber type aircraft regiment. The photos below were made between 1983 and 1991 at Neuruppin airport about the 730th regiment's crews and technique.
The regiment handed over their Su-17M4 Fitter-K in 1991 to the 20th Guard Fighter Bomber Air Regiment.
