Severomorsk-3 (also referred to as Malyavr or Murmansk Northeast) is an air base of the Russian Navy's Northern Fleet in Murmansk Oblast, Russia. It is located 28 kilometers (17 mi) east of Murmansk, next to Lake Malyavr in the west of the Kola Peninsula.

The main operator of Severomorsk-3 has been 279 OMSHAP (279th Independent Naval Shturmovik Aviation Regiment) operating at least 41 Sukhoi Su-25 aircraft in 1992, with 4 Su-25UB and 5 Su-25UTG trainers, plus 27 Yakovlev Yak-38 and 1 Yak-38U aircraft.[1] The unit changed its name to the 279th OKIAP (279th Independent Shipborne Fighter Aviation Regiment) sometime between 1992 and 2016 and it made up of two fighter and one training squadrons operating the Sukhoi Su-33, Sukhoi Su-27UB & Su-25UTG.[2]

The 100th OKIAP is based here and made up of two fighter squadrons operating the Mikoyan MiG-29KR/KUBR.[2]

The Russian Navy's ZEVS-ELF Transmitter is located directly south of Severomorsk-3.
