Chernyakhovsk (also Chernyahovsk) – Russian: Черняхо́вск – is a naval air base located 4 km southwest of the city of Chernyakhovsk in the Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia. It is a medium sized interceptor airfield, listed as a nuclear bomber base by a Natural Resources Defense Council study.

It was a major base for Su-24 (Fencer) aircraft [1] with up to 29 examples flown by 4 Gv MSHAP (4th Guards Naval Shturmovik Aviation Regiment) [2]. It was also home to 15 ODRAP (15th Independent Long-Range Reconnaissance Regiment). A few sources cite the airfield as being a Tupolev Tu-16 base during the 1960s or 1970s.
