Historical:

MiG-23MF “Red 149” MSN 0390217149 was delivered to the 28 Pulk Lotnictwa Mysilwskiego (28th Fighter Aviation Regiment) at Redzikowo AB near Slupsk on June 25, 1979 and served until 1997. In 2005 it was put on display at Babimost, Poland, a former military airbase. The 28th was established in 1952 and consisted of two squadrons. In 1979 after two months of training crews in the Soviet Union the 28th replaced their MiG-15 and MiG-17 aircraft with MiG-23MF and MiG-23UB. The first nine MiG-23MF arrived on June 4.1979.

2nd Squadron 1. SLP (Fighter Aviation Regiment) based at Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic was equipped with the MiG-23MF beginning in 1978. In the spring of 1992 the unit began to use aircraft markings from the 1960s and 70s so the Bat was once again used. MiG-23MF "3922" MSN 0390213922 was delivered to 1. SLP in March 1979, in 1983 it went to 11 SLP and returned to 1. SLP in 1989. In 1994 the aircraft was flown to the military aviation museum Prague-Kbely by pilot Colonel George Trunecka.

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23 is a variable-geometry fighter aircraft, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich design bureau in the Soviet Union. It is considered to belong to the Soviet third-generation jet fighter category, along with similarly aged Soviet fighters such as the MiG-25 "Foxbat". It was the first attempt by the Soviet Union to design look-down/shoot-down radar and one of the first to be armed with beyond visual range missiles. Production started in 1970 and reached large numbers with over 5,000 aircraft built. Today the MiG-23 remains in limited service with some export customers.

The basic design was also used as the basis for the Mikoyan MiG-27, a dedicated ground-attack variant. Among many minor changes, the MiG-27 replaced the MiG-23's nose-mounted radar system with an optical panel holding a laser designator and a TV camera.
