No, the Mi-24s are all out of service. Some went for salvaging to eastern european nations, some went to Manching (Bundeswehr test and evaluation
facility) and the USAF for testing. Although the NVA partly had formidable and BRAND NEW, FULLY PAID Mi-24P which only ceased delivery in the ´90
shortly before the reunification, they were only in active use until the NVA/Bundeswehr fusion was completed. Then again, they didnt really fit into
the german doctrine.
I am not aware of if any Suchois were really operated, but the MiG-29 was flown until last year when the last of them were sold to Poland for 1
symbolical € each to Poland (part of the agreement was that Poland would hire german firms for upgrading them, but they fooked us). Until that the
german unit operating these birds probably was the worldwide most feared single squadron operating MiGs. They were constantly invited to maneuvers and
wargames all over the world and got so used to fighting western airplanes and doctrines that they regularly won these scenarios (comparable to the US
special units who had to simulate the russian enemy time and again). WVR the bird was a nemesis.
No other piece of ex-NVA heavy equipment is still in active use to my knowledge, most of it was sent off to trials in Germany, the USA and Israel. But
some smaller equipment was integrated, for example certain radios or pieces of personal gear (the G36 for example was built to fit AK bayonets).
