Comments and historyAppears to be an old 1960s-era base, poorly maintained. Hardened with 10 revetments and small tarmac. The U.S. Department of Defense cited this as one of the first two identified air assault brigades in the mid-1970s (also Mogocha). This seems to be given as 13th, 44th, and 80th Airborne Assault Brigade. Elevation of airfield area is 400 m according to Soviet topo maps; using ONC elevation of 369 m.
