Bagay-Baranovka (also given as Sennoy, Sennoe, or Sennoye) is an air base in Saratov Oblast, Russia located 2 km south of Sennoy. It is a small training base, with training airspace about 5–10 km to the east.

Units on the base include 343 IIAP (343rd Instructor Interceptor Aviation Regiment), equipped with Su-17 aircraft in 1989-91 and MiG-23 and MiG-29E in the early 1990s.[1] The unit has been reported to have disbanded in 1998.[2] However, another report says it had as many as 54 MiG-29s by 2003.

The base also played host briefly to the 176th Fighter Aviation Regiment, flying MiG-29s, when it returned from Mikha Tskhakaya (Senaki), Georgia in 1992; it was quickly disbanded.
