Any chance there's been any progress toward the Mig-23? Been a while since we've heard anything, but I know the Mig-19 was and may still be the primary focus.

Last word from Razbam is that they are focused on finishing current modules. At a guess I'd say the mig23 might be out next year.

I certainly don't expect it any sooner, either. I just want to see some of those juicy progress pics and updates someday to tide me over! But I'm 100% for them taking as long as needed to sort out anything remaining on the current modules either way, so it's no big deal.

As a discussion point for any who know or are interested: I know the variant we're getting is the MLA with R-24R/T and R-60M support, and that we'll have the option for the SPO-15 since at least some were retrofitted and to make it more broadly viable in DCS. But I can't find any good information on total equipped weapons or pylon arrangement here or elsewhere. Do we know how many of what we'll be able to equip?

Dunno exactly,

This is for the MLD should be similar for the MLA. For a full AA load 4xR60 and 2xR23/24

It looks like that chart is for the P, ML, and MLD. I may be misunderstanding variants a bit, but I believed the P is the closest to what we're getting from what I read a while back. Still, I saw this chart earlier in the thread but didn't notice that it was for more variants than the MLD. Considering the only thing on there not available to the MLA is the R-73, it seems likely that this is correct.

This is what most people will carry.

Also as for progress, I'm pretty sure the 3D team(s) are hard at work on the mig23 considering the 3D work on the existing models is basically done, and I'm sure they aren't sitting around doing nothing.

I heard the team working on the Mig-19 will work on the Mig-23. So the sooner the Mig-19 is done, the quicker the Mig-23 should see a ramp up in development.

We all heard that, the problem being we don't actually know what the word "team" means in Razbam speak. My guess is their 3d guys are hard at work on it already, and some basic FM/coding is probably going on too behind the scenes.

I wonder how many people will take only one R-24R and a R-24T

Hopefully we'll get to learn more soon. I know the Mig-19 still has a few outstanding items (sounds, at least), but it seems to be wrapping up from the last time I flew it. We're a long way off of a Mig-23 regardless, but it's easily the future module I'm most looking forward to!
