An interesting career for this mighty classic. Starting operational life in 1987 as a Soviet Air Force machine (in Aeroflot livery), it arrived at supporting F-16s that are partly ex USAF jets, during a NATO exercise. In the mid-1990s it had a civil job as well, as UR-76730 without refuelling equipment. With the Pakistan Air Force since 2010.
