Historical:

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23 (Russian: _Ï_ü_¼__åãå__ _ü _ÒåãÄåãÛ_µ___üåãà _Ï_ü_Ò-23; NATO reporting name:Flogger) 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.

  1. A great addition to the HM catalog 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2016

    The model is well made, with a near perfect finish. An exception is the paint finish on the main landing gear doors (closed). Most of the attention was paid to the extended landing gear assemblies, which I chose not to install. Of interest is the interchangeable, lower rear fin, which has a alternate piece, cocked to the side so it won't hit the ground. Typical of the kluged designs of some Russian planes.

    I received the Iranian F-14 a few weeks earlier, which makes an interesting model for comparison. Same paint scheme.
