In 1984 the 368th attack regiment formed with a new type. With the help of the large amount pf weapons carrier, armored Szu-25 battle planes the army's close air support capability increased significantly. The Szu-25 type did not require a high-quality, long runway, thus were create at Kalyniv airport next to a helicopter unit.
