In the seventies the Soviet 17th Tactical Air Army received two regiments of advanced MiG-21SM Fishbed-J and MiG-21bis Fishbed-L tactical fighter types. The Kharkov and Chernigov Higher Military Aviation Schools training regiments formed the reserve air force with the MiG-21PF Fishbed-D and MiG-23S Flogger-A types in the late seventies. In case of war, these training regiments were subordinated to 17th Tactical Air Army.
