The MiG-23 airframe was used for two main types of aircraft: frontline fighter/interceptor and ground attack variants.

Most know fighter variants were the MF, ML and MLD. These were mainly focused on air-to-air combat, but can also use most Soviet non guided rockets and bombs and the radio guided Kh/X-23 missile.

The bomber variants were the MiG-23B, BN and MiG-27. These lacked the radar having a laser rangefinder and much better forward visibility. Later variants of the MiG-27 were able to use PGMs and ARMs.

There was also the MiG-23UB two seater training aircraft.

Now the Big Question is: Did the MiG-19 do well enough to make a MiG-23? And perhaps in the farther future a MiG-27?

Likely. As they are making the MiG-23MLA, but that drops the Mig-27 out of the question as easy job as it has totally different flight modeling, but it would be far nicer than any MiG-23 bomber variant.

Yeah a 27 would be great... I just don't see it happening documents wise. Not like they were exported much if at all.

India uses/used MiG-27s extensively.

OverStratos' forum avatar has changed, it's too small to tell, but I'm wondering if it's in DCS or a real Flogger?

Nice catch. I seem to remember it used to be a Mig-19 when he was working on that
