After the post of stills of Syrian MiG-21's, I have prepared this post for the mighty Syrian MiG-23's with some very rare stills been published for the first time.
Actually it is one still which is shown above, for a Syrian MiG-23ML in a HAS ready for scramble fitted with two AA-7 Apex missiles under the pylon of the wing gloves. While unfortunately, It is very hard to recognize the missiles those are fitted under the fuselage on both sides of the additional fuel tank...should be AA-8 Aphid's.
Another Syrian MiG-23ML appeared in media during the last SyAAF live fire maneuvers took place on July 2012. It carries the serial 2795.
Such type has received serious overhaul in Krasnodar facility in Russia.
Another Syrian MiG-23's could be spotted in Hama AFB few months ago.
The very famous take of the pair of SyAAF MiG-23BN's also appeared in the said maneuvers of 2012, firing S-24 unguided air-to-surface rockets.
Great clear shot for a SyAAF MiG-23BN flying over Qaboon district in Damascus in Sep. 2013 after bombardment sortie, showing details of camo could be of interest of modellers and profiles makers.
Another shot from the bottom for a SyAAF MiG-23BN was taken on 21 Aug. 2013 while dispensing flares over Darayya in Damascus.
