The regiment used slowly L-29 Delfin trainer aircraft too.
At the end of the eighties, the MiG-21SMT Fishbed-K of the 228th Training Air Regiment was replaced by second-hand MiG-23MLD Flogger-K. The new type arrived from 168th Fighter Air Regiment. These MiG-23MLD aircrafts fought in Afghanistan between 1987 and 1988.
