Im going to make a 1/32 mig23 MLD flogger K as a soviet afghan machine.  Could anyone tell me if this mig was used in thé ground attack role?  If so, what weapons did it carry?  Any info on thé mig23 MLD flogger K in afghanistan would be appreciated.

I think is a yes

I didn't check the discussion, I don't know how good Trumpeter 1/32 Mig is nor what you get inside, be warned that Mig-23 and 27 (and many others) are kinda particular as rail and pylon adapters do not follow standard rules so you can have for example

X missile or bomb

Fuselage adapter and rack for X missile or bomb

X2 missile or bomb

Fuselage adapter for X missile or bomb but Y rack for X2 missile or bomb

but also Y and Y for X2 missile or bomb cause I don't know really what reasons are behind it, was going to build a Mig-23 and found out that RV didn't include rails and adapters for it, it appears that I need to steal the fuselage adapters from Art Model Mig-23UB and use the rails from RV aftermarket R3M or whatever those SAHR Atolls were called, pretty much the same for Mig-27 and I guess will apply for Su-17M3 with Kh-25 missiles

Thanks for the reply.  Now thinking it may be easier to make a machine with just an air to air loadout with aphids and some R23s and/or BM-1 rocket pods.  As they were involved with contacts with Pakistani F16s and had a couple of air to air to air kills.  So maybe would be a better option  as after all the mig23 was designed and used as strike package escorts. So maybe a better option. Any comments?  I have the linden hill "aghansti" decals so might be more appropriate vetsion. But let me know what you think.

 

Thanks again for your Iformation and give me your opinion on you think

 

I have the full mig23 zacto set for the mig23 so just loomi g for options

Source for that statement?  Is it one of those websites that also claim the Yugoslavs shot down half the USAF during their war?

I think rocket pods with Aphids can be a certain option, not sure about giving up on them for a R23 and rocket pods on the belly, I scavenged the web for Russian book and magazine scans and the reference material I found it's kinda dull.

Military Photos had a great archive from that era but sadly everything it's gone, I think there is no Floggerman to be found anywhere nor I have Linden Hill decal sheet 😕

Thanks for thé reply.  I aassumed most sorties flown by thé mig23 would have been CAPS flying top cover for SU25s or mig27s.  So I was thinking or putting on dual aphids and a couple or R23s.  There were reports or mig23s downing Pakistani F16s with R23s but of course could never be confirmed. But dual aphids plus some rocket pods would also bé a cool loadout.  I got thé Linden Hill Afghansti decals to use so Ill ses what I décidé.  I welcome thé input.
