Tambov is an air base in Russia located 4 km southwest of Tambov. It is a bomber training base with many Tupolev Tu-134UBL aircraft. Yefim Gordon's MiG-23/27 book[1] refers to a 652 UAP (652nd Aviation Training Regiment) stationed at Tambov/Vostochnyy flying 96 Aero L-29 Delfin, but Vostochny is Russian for "east", which may refer to the civilian Tambov Donskoye Airport rather than this southwest airfield.

Tambov used to be home to 4255 BRS flying MiG-23 aircraft.
