Regiment history


The history of the 2nd Fighter Air Regiment ( 2nd IAP) officially begins to be written on December 21, 1937, when the directive of the People's Defense Commissioner of the USSR No. 4/1/49862ss ( № 4/1/49862сс) in conjunction with the Military Council Directive of the Kiev Military District of 14.04.1938 No. ŠM/3/0031ss ( № ШМ/3/0031сс) was in the city of Vasilkov ( Kiev Military District) from 13.05.1938 created the 2nd IAP.

At the same time, the newly formed regiment was supplemented by personnel from the 5th Fighter Squadron ( 5 истребительная авиаэскадрилья).

Already a year and a half since its inception, the regiment is involved in a faithful invasion of Poland, or as euphemistically states the source below "until the liberation of Western Ukraine". While Wehrmacht troops are attacking Poland from the west, the troops of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army are marching from the east. As part of it, the 2nd IAP, whose pilots are fighting on machines, is involved in the fighting in the ranks of the 22nd Fighter Air Brigade of the Ukrainian Front.=/topic/view/15692] I-16[/url] a I-15bis.

In this lineup, the regiment also catches the attack on the Soviet Union June 22, 1941. At the time of entering the fighting, the regiment had 57 aircraft of the type I-16 and I-153, of which 11 irreparable. The regiment recorded its first air victory in the battle chronicle on the first day of the war - a group of fighters were in air combat around the city Kiev shot down two German bombers identified as Ju-88. After three months of fierce fighting, the regiment was 20.09.1941 taken to the reserve of the Air Force Southwest Front.

During this period (23.08.1942-06.10.1942) he was stationed at the airport near the town of Židkur, located on the left bank of the Volga, while not taking part in combat operations.
