It appears that in the beginning, around 2012 it was, every base was given its own block of RF serials. I only know of one example, either the Su-25s from Buddenovsk or Buturlinovka which indeed had their c/n as the RF number.Pieter wrote:Is there somewhere an explanation of the "new" RF- serial system the Russian Federation use.
I can't find any logic in it
After aircraft were rotated to different units they mostly retained their original RF registration messing up the original system.
It appears that new aircraft are receiving RF serials off-factory.

In most ways there is no logic at all in the system. But sometime there is. For instance MChs aircraft begins with RF-31 til RF-32.... altough they also have serials in RA- series.
