                Something about the Steppe silence. But in 2017 they promised that there would already be a regiment. New airfield, a new town with town houses. It did not grow together. And the news about Chkalovsk pleased, especially the new PCO. By the way, he is in the queue for Su35 after Besovets.

    Wikipedia, of course, is lying, but you cannot compare it with the mighty USSR in the number of airfields. “After the 2008-2009 reform, of the 245 military airfields in Russia, about 70 remained active, the rest are now mothballed or used sporadically. In the coming years, the process of reducing the network of military airfields will continue, so only 27 major military airfields will remain in the country [1]. Most of the airfields were built during the Soviet period (from the 1950s to the 1970s). "

    For every military aerodrome there should be a jump aerodrome, a maneuver aerodrome, an alternate aerodrome, so think about whether another “unnecessary” aerodrome is needed? DBL BLD.
