Photographer's Remark

The MiG-27 shares the basic airframe of the MiG-23 but is optimised for air-to-ground attack. Dissatisfaction with the MiG-23BN led to the further development of the basic airframe to accommodate; a stronger undercarriage, simpler intakes, a shorter exhaust nozzle and a revised nose with a downward-sloping profile for improved pilot visibility. This example is on display at the Central Museum of the Air Forces at Monino.
