Profiles of SyAAF Units - Part I (Fixed-Wing Aircraft)

Very special thanks for the very special gift for this blog prepared by our friend "Erased24" !!!
Awesome profiles of some SyAAF units those accurately rendered after referring to their real photos to be recorded as good reference for modellers. 

  
Starting with an L-39ZA with serial 2119, this UNIT which last seen fitted with unguided rocket pods, used to be operated from Kweres (Rasm Al Abboud) AFB.
On 19 November 2012, Free Syrian Army succeeded to shot down this aircraft which was assaulting towns and villages in the suburbs of Aleppo.



Another L-39ZA with serial 2136 (written here 2126)
This UNIT was spotted twice at least last year releasing two free fall bombs (FAB-250) and firing unguided rockets over the city of Aleppo, also used to be operated from Kweres (Rasm Al Abboud) AFB.


MiG-21MF with serial 1549 fitted with four AA-2 Atol air-to-air missiles, this UNIT was photographed in Dhmair AFB with the SyAAF legendary hero Magid Al Zughbi


MiG-23ML with serial 2755, first published in Combat Aircraft Monthly magazine in the episode of September 2010.


MiG-23BN attack/bomber with serial 1677, this type of aircraft is being used almost daily to assault suburbs of Damascus, Deir EzZour and recently Dar'a.


MiG-25RB with serial 2705, first published when it was in Dhmair AFB HERE


MiG-29 Fulcrum A with serial 2420.


Su-24MK with serial 2509, this type is also in use widely with SyAAF to conduct bombing missions against FSyA, and sometimes against civilians mostly in the provinces of Idleb, Homs and Aleppo.
