According to this website,
NVA never used a single Lim-6bis, the photo you find is probably a Lim-5 (MiG-17F). That β€˜β€˜Mars-2’’ 16Γ—57mm S-5 rocket launcher may let you mistakenly believed those planes are Lim-6bis

In Detlef Billig, Manfred Meyer, Flugzeuge der DDR I. Band bis 1962 (2002) it is mentioned that some Lim-5P were converted to Lim-6bis standard, but without the breaking chute. So externally they would look similar to a Lim-5P and would probably still have the same tactical markings and so on.

@Stuhlfleisch Another possible addition is the MiG-23S

Given to East Germany by the Soviets as an instructional airframe.

East Germany possibly order the export Su-27, Not sure tho.
