This changed in 1982. The old Su-17M ‘Fitter-C’ and 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.
