Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series HA5303
Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23MS Flogger-E die-cast Model
USAF 4477th TES, Red 49, Tonopah Test Range, NV, 1980s
Length: 23 cm. - Wingspan: 19 cm.
Recommended Retail Price in the US: 99,- USD.
The 4477th Test and Evaluation Squadron is based at the Tonopah Test Range Airfield, Nevada and was tasked with training USAF, USN and USMC crews how to better fight Soviet aircraft. The 4477th pilots would act as aggressors called Bandits flying Soviet built aircraft acquired by countries friendly to the US. Some of the aircraft used were MiG-17, 21, 23 and the Chinese Shenyang F-7B. MiG-23MS "Red 49" was used by Major Thomas Drake in 294 sorties and was the most experienced pilot of the 69 Bandits.
Designed as a heavier, more powerful improvement on the MiG-21 Fishbed, the MiG 23 first flew on June 10, 1967. This fighter/bomber had variable-sweep wings and could achieve speeds greater than Mach 2. It was the first Soviet aircraft capable of firing "beyond-visual-range" missiles, and the first to have look-down/shoot-down radar. As one of the most successful military aircraft built during the Cold War, MiG-23s were produced in large numbers, with more than 5,000 coming off of the production lines. Although retired from service in the former Soviet Union, many MiG-23s are still in service with various export customers.
