Explore our collection of diecast models of the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23 - Authentically Detailed, Cold War Icon, and Collectible Airplane Models.

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23 is a Soviet-era swing-wing fighter aircraft, notable for its variable geometry wings, which allowed it to excel at both high-speed and low-speed flight. Introduced in the 1970s, it was a significant advancement in Soviet aviation technology and became a staple in their air forces and those of their allies during the Cold War.

Key versions of the MiG-23 include the MiG-23ML (a lighter, more agile variant with improved avionics), MiG-23MF (export version for Warsaw Pact countries), and MiG-23BN (ground attack version). The MiG-23 was designed for a variety of missions, from air interception to ground attack, demonstrating considerable versatility. Its widespread use, distinct design with the variable-sweep wing, and role in numerous Cold War conflicts make it a fascinating subject for military aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those interested in the technological evolution of jet fighters during the Cold War era.
