Chuguev Aviation Repair Plant Modifications MIG-23

  •  MiG-23S – the first serial fighter model of the MiG-23. The first flight of the plane was made on May 21, 1969. Equipment: TRDF R-27F-300, radar RP-22, heat finder, radio compass ARK-10 and equipment of the ASP-PF drive system.

Produced in 1969-1970. in Moscow at the MMP “Banner of Labor" (currently PC No. 2 of RSK MiG OJSC).
The name in production is “Product 22”.

  • MiG-23UB – Spark training and combat aircraft. Produced in 1970-1978. in Irkutsk.
  • MiG-23M – aircraft with a larger wing area and improved aerodynamics, more powerful powerplant (TRDF R29F-300). The fighter’s equipment included an improved Sapphire-23D radar, a TP-23 heat finder, and an ASP-23D optical collimator sight, which made it possible to use the medium range UR R-23R (radar semi-active guidance system) and R-23T (IR self-guidance) also SD with short-range infrared self-homing K-13M. Manufacturer – MMP “Banner of Labor", the name in the production of aircraft MiG-23M / MS / MF – “Item 2".

  • In 1973, the MiG-23MS and MiG-23M with simplified onboard radio electronics and weapons were intended for export deliveries.
  • MiG-23MF – had a simplified radar, compared with the MiG-23M, intended for the Warsaw Pact countries, and then for the Arab countries. Part of the MiG-23MF was converted from the MiG-23M.

  • MiG-23BN – a specialized fighter-bomber. The original version (developer code 32-24) had an AL-21F-3 engine, was produced on the “Banner of Labor” under the symbol “Product 24BN” and was called MiG-23B. The subsequent version 32-23 had an R29B-300 engine and was produced under the “Product 32” index until 1985. A very popular and truly universal fighter-bomber, widely sold out in the third world countries.
  • MiG-23ML – launched in 1974. The aircraft had a power plant with an increased thrust (TRDF R35F-300), an improved automatic control system, the Sapphire-23ML radar, the TP-23M heat finder, and the friend-to-others SRO recognition system -2M and the indicator on the windshield ILS ASP-17ML.
  • MiG-23P – lightweight interceptor for air defense forces, capable of fighting low-flying targets. Began to be produced in 1977. Manufacturer – MMP “Banner of Labor", the name in production – “Product 3" for the MiG-23ML / MLD and “Product 6" for the MiG-23P.
  • MiG-23PD – experimental fighter with a short take-off and landing. The first flight made in 1967. The plane additionally installed two lifting engines RD36-35 with a load of 2350 kgf each.
  • MiG-23MLD – the most advanced modification in the MiG-23 family. The aircraft had an optimal layout, providing a significant improvement in maneuverability with minimal modification of the airframe. The fighter’s radar can detect and track up to six air targets, including against the background of the ground. For protection at low altitudes from MANPADS and SD with infrared homing systems on the fixed parts of the wing, blocks of containers with IR traps were installed. Armament: R-24R, R-24T, and later highly maneuverable R-73 melee missiles with an infrared homing system were installed. Part of the aircraft modified from the MiG-23ML.

The Indian Air Force received the first of 70 Mig-23s in 1981, aircraft for 28 years flew 154,000 hours and were written off in 2009. In some years, the MiG-23 had the highest accident rate among all aircraft of the Indian Air Force. For all the time in the flight accidents about half of the total number of vehicles received was lost.
