The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23 had its maiden flight on 10th June 1967, and on 9th July it was unveiled to the public at the Domodedovo airshow, receiving the name “Flogger” in NATO code.
The main feature of this aircraft was the variable-geometry wings, unprecedented in the history of Soviet aeronautic construction; nonetheless, the development time was relatively brief for such an innovative project, and the first pre-production variant went into service as early as 1971. Since that time, it is estimated that over 2200 Mig-23s were produced for the VVS, and about the same number were exported to more than twenty countries. A ground attack variant, the MiG-27, was also developed.
The last MiG-23s in front line service were retired around 1997.
