MiG-23FI non swing wing Flogger for SFP1, WOI, WOE, WOV

 

*************************************

HISTORY

*************************************

 

In the 60th the MiG-23 was developed as counterpart to the american F-111 fighters. In both superpowers the specialists had the strong belief, that the time of dogfight was over. The major task, so they thought, would be the high speed intercept mission. For that kind of warfare the MiG-23 was optimized.

In the local wars in late 60th it was proof, that the days of dogfight were far away to be over. In cotrary, the dogfight was still the major task of a fighter plane and for that kind of warfare the MiG-23 was not suited. So the MiG OKB started a development line to make the plane more agil, which finally led to the MiG-23ML, which was much better than the first MiG-23, but was also no born dogfighter. So in 1971 the MiG-OKB started to develope a high agile future frontline fighter (Project 9), which had its maidenflight in 1977 under the designation MiG-29.

One of the first studies of the project 9 showed a plane in size and shape of the MiG-23ML with F-15 like air intakes, two engines and non swing wings.

 

My MiG-23FI is fiction. It is one step back, a MiG-23ML look alike with non swing wings and dogfight optimized wings with aditionally hardpoints.

FI stands for "frontowoi istrebitjel" what means: Frontline fighter.

I edited the Data file a littel bit and puzzled the parts together. Then i modified the original skin to make a blue MiG.

INSTALLATION

**********************************************

 

1. unzip into your aircraft folder

The subfolder MiG-23FI will be created

2. make sure that the following files are placed in aircraft folder, NOT in MiG-23FI folder:

MiG-23 Pylon.LOD and bmp

MiG-23IRWerfer.LOD and bmp

WPact_Pilot.LOD and bmp

otherwise you will see pilots sitting on the wings and on the back of the bird.

 

 

Thats it! Enjoy flying.
