It's going to be wonderful and way more effective than most people think. In the right hands that is.

I'm curious - what is the first variant of the Mig-23 that had a fire control system allowing it to mix IR and SAR missiles in its loadout (apparently the early ones could only carry either 2xR-23T or 2xR-23R but not a mix)?

AFIK, the Cuban MLA can have both at the same time, I was in the Cuban Armed Forces for 14 years and many times went to Air Force Bases for work, and watched the MIG-23ML with R-24T in one wing and R-24R in the other, and below 4 x R-60MK. The one visible in the picture below right wing is the R-24T



The same day left wing is visible the R-24R
