Operatives and analysts of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine have identified 29 personnel from the command, flight, and technical personnel of the 44th Separate Special Purpose Aviation Regiment of the Long-Range Aviation of the Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation.

Additionally, seven officers from the technical personnel of the regiment have been identified.

The 44th OAP SP (military unit 83122) was formed on December 1, 2021.

Permanent location: Savasleyka Airfield, Nizhny Novgorod region, Russian Federation.

The regiment has a two-squadron structure, with a standard complement of up to 24 aircraft - MiG-31K long-range interceptor fighters.

The aircraft registration numbers of the MiG-31K from the regiment have also been determined: RF-20862, RF-03230, RF-20882, RF-03231, RF-03234, RF-19275, RF-94268, RF-42251, RF-42253, RF-20867, RF-20883.

Armament: Kh-47M2 Kinzhal aviation missile complex (combat part 500 kg, possible nuclear armament); purpose - delivering maximum-speed strikes at distances of up to 2000 km.

The hypersonic flight speed of the missile on the final segment is achieved due to the acceleration of the carrier aircraft to supersonic parameters (i.e., the MiG-31K acts as the "first stage").
