30th Air Army Sandbox[edit]

In the spring-summer 1980 the headquarters of the 8th Separate Heavy Bomber Aviation Corps (deployed Blagoveshchensk) х has formed a basis for expansion in Irkutsk managements of 30-th ВА ВГК strategic purpose. The structure of 30-th Air Army ВГК besides 31st and 55th heavy bombing aviadivisions (connections of Distant aircraft entered earlier in number) for some time included also formations of front aircraft (including arrived in the end 1979 into Transbaikalia 21st Bomber Aviation division, (machine translated from http://voiska.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=134&pid=10877&mode=threaded&show=&st=%EF%BF%BDentry1087) Buckshot06 (talk) 06:17, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Convoluted history[edit]

Can we do something about the confusion surround the composition and status of the LRA? It was known as such until 1998 when it was disbanded. Between 1991 and 1998, the force was split between Kazahkstan (I think), Ukraine, and Russia. After 1998 Russia's strategic responsibilities were taken up by the 37th Air Army, until 2009 when again the bomber force was again organised and renamed Long Range Aviation Command. Should I create the articles Long Range Aviation Command and Long Range Aviation (Ukraine)? I need suggestions. --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 05:30, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Long Range Aviation (Ukraine) looks a little unwieldy - are there any other possible titles with a more natural name?
I can only find ru:Дальняя авиация Украины which translates to Дальняя авиация Украины. --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 00:59, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
If it has to be split, perhaps a split between a core article with all the history, and one or more articles for current-day formations. (Or maybe merge something into articles on national air forces which are already biased towards the current day). bobrayner (talk) 11:27, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't catch what you said. Here's what I mean:

Conducted LRA 24/7 patrols like SAC ?[edit]

Claimed in article Launch on warning is that LRA presumably conducted 24/7 round-the-clock patrols like SAC did for some period of time. This seems doubtful, looking at LRAs considerably lower bomber, tanker and base potential. Anything to say about that ? Thank you, --129.187.244.28 (talk) 14:59, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
