From that it sounds like BS III is a mode originally from the PVO's N006 ie unfiltered long range high altitude search. (A real kick in the teeth to all those who prescribe to the "PVO are strictly GCI until engagement" theory")

End of development = free resources is a quite common misconception. Especially with a small teams where it's easy to assume that the same team that did the development during the project will have to provide maintenance.
Actually the result of having the same team to make a support of old project is that it ruins any scheduling as by their nature defects occur and have to be addressed ad-hock. In extreme cases such teams are not able to move forward with the new projects at all.

In other words if the same team that worked on MiG-19 will work on MiG-23, lets hope they did a good job on the project so there are no bugs at all

more often the case it accounts for the "unresponsive" postlaunch support as the current monetization model favors new product throughput over existing product support.

which is in the grand scheme, a good thing imo

This would probably come down to if they are a Cuban based team, or just there doing research. If it's the latter, they could probably fudge it. If its the former, not so much.

I guess it all depends on how complete the first product was in the first place.

I dont think the team is Cuban based, they have to be living abroad, maybe they have a friend in Cuba that is the one with the proper connections and do the research.

Anyway, there are former Cuban MIG-23 pilots that live in Miami. Another one, Alberto Ley Rivas, who shot down the South African Mirage F1 in Angola is living in Cuba.
