Gross Mohrdorf airfield (german: Feldflugplatz Groß Mohrdorf, Russian: Грос-Мордорф) was an airfield 210 kilometers north of Berlin.
Built by the German Democratic Republic in the 1967-1974 timeframe, it was a reserve NVA LSK (Nationale Volksarmee Luftstreitkräfte, or East-German National Peoples Army Air Force) dispersed airbase (a.k.a. Feldflugplatz) for Jagdgeschwader (Fighter Wing) JG-9 'Karlshagen' stationed at Peenemünde, and in 1989/1990 it was under reconstruction to have a concrete runway, so it could serve as a base for the Sukhoi Su-22 fighter-bombers of the new Marinefliegergeschwader (Naval Air Wing) MFG-28 from 1992.

After the Berlin Wall fell and the two Germanies were united, the project was ultimately not completed. The site was abandoned. Around 2010 a small solarvoltaic site was erected on the site of what was formerly the support camp. The existing buildings were demolished to make room for the solar panels.
