Eastern Order of Battle

Soviet Turkestan Military District's
49th Tactical Air Army
in January 1, 1978

The seventies were a quiet period at the Turkestan Military District. The Soviet Union had no conflict with the Imperial Iran. Also, the neighboring Afghanistan was a friendly state.

The main type of 49th Tactical Air Army was the MiG-21 Fishbed. The 115th Guard Fighter Air Regiment received factory new MiG-21bis Fishbed-L fighters around 1976. The two fighter bomber air regiments exchanged the MiG-17 Fresco-A with second-hand MiG-21PFM Fishbed-F. Some of the old subsonic MiG-17 Fresco aircraft have been used as training aircraft.
