In 1970 the Soviet Air Force 787th IAP (Istrebitelniy Aviatsionniy Polk) (Fighter Aviation Regiment began operations in Eberswalde, Finow AB, Brandenburg, East Germany not far from Berlin. At this time they were equipped with MiG-21s and in 1976 received the new MiG-23Ms and MiG-23UB two-seaters. The 787th IAP was originally activated in 1941 as the 423rd IAP PVO and in 1942 renamed 787th IAP PVO with the final name change to 787th IAP coming in 1951. The 787th IAP was eventually disbanded in 1993.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23M Flogger-B

Designed as a heavier, more powerful improvement on the MiG-21 Fishbed, the MiG 23 first flew on June 10, 1967. This fighter/bomber had variable-sweep wings and could achieve speeds greater than Mach 2. It was the first Soviet aircraft capable of firing "beyond-visual-range" missiles, and the first to have look-down/shoot-down radar. As one of the most successful military aircraft built during the Cold War, MiG-23s were produced in large numbers, with more than 5,000 coming off of the production lines. Although retired from service in the former Soviet Union, many MiG-23s are still in service with various export customers.
