The latest image from RAZBAM’s DCS: MiG-23 project is out and it’s our best look yet at their swing wing Soviet interceptor. The latest modeling we’ve seen from them have shown off an impressively detailed set of landing gear and now this look at a good chunk of the model.
There’s a background simmer of excitement for this module as near as I can tell around the community. Although the MiG-19 from the same team within RAZBAM did a pretty good job with that module in the end, I think expectations are higher here with the MiG-23 and it also has a much more contemporary capability set that matches better with the more modern types in the sim.
So this latest image, posted to their Twitter, Facebook and Discord channels shows off this module as it slowly comes together.
This image also confirms a debate that has raged on if the type would ultimately be the MiG-23MLA as previously indicated or if there were hints that RAZBAM would be doing the slightly more advanced MiG-23MLD version. The MLA was widely exported while the MLD was not shared nearly as much.
Stretching back to March of 2019 we’ve seen detailed mesh images of the MiG-23 including some very detailed cockpit and exterior model images. Can’t wait to see textures on this aircraft.
