6963-ая авиабаза, Халино ■ 6963rd Air Base, Khalino (Kursk)

Since the end of the year 2009 Khalino was a home of the 14-й гвардейский Ленинградский Краснознамённый ордена Суворова III степени истребительный авиационный полк (14th Leningrad's Guards Fighter Air Regiment honoured with a Suvorov Order 3rd class). When the 14th Regiment was disbanded in December 2009, a 6963rd Air Base was formed.

In 2009 and 2010 regiment gets MiGs-29SMT and upgraded (modernized) MiGs-29UB (sometimes wrongly called MiG-29UBT) from Lukhovitsy and Nizhniy Novogorod plants. Known numbers of the SMTs are: 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 20 21* 21* 22** 22** 23** 23** 24 25 26 27 28 29 32 and UBs: 21* 39 71 72 73 74 (* three aircrafts with the same number 21, ** two aircrafts with the same number 22 and 23).


Prototype MiG-29SMT #777, Russia 2009. Good, old #777 in new painting: grey and darkgrey polygons on lightgray background. Russian SMTs were painted in the same excellent pattern. Drawing accuracy: 100%.

All Russian SMTs and upgraded UBs have very interesting type of camouflage with large irregular polygons (grey and darkgrey) on lightgrey background. The colours of polygons are shifted on aircrafts, there's at last four-five schemes. Since May 2010 aircrafts have Russian stars, and since July 2010 small numbers on top of the fins painted in red, instead standard white. Note a different colours in MiG's emblem on left air intakes. Aircrafts have a position lights to night flights compatible with night-vision googles.
