Exclusive photos I shot myself for the 33 ex-Belorussian MiG-23's stationed at Neyrab airbase at the tarmac infront of 'the factory' the main maintenance and overhaul facility for SyAAF.
Not all these MiG-23s are MLD, few are UB trainer variant AKA (DUAL) in SyAAF.
These MLD's should be fitted with longer range radar than the ML, enhanced avionics and BVR air-to-air missils reported to be maintained and overhauled to join in the front-line air bases.
On the date of my photos I could count 30~31 units in that air base, seems the remaining truly saw their way inside the overhaul facility.
Note how the Red star at fin is over painted randomly in green.
