    Nope, this is a pic of a mig-23:
    [​IMG]

    IIRC, It was the answer to the Northrop-Grumman F-111 Aardvark. Looks similar and has similar properties, except for the single seat for the Mig vs. the double side-by-side of the F-111.

    Thus ends today's lesson in Moparmike's School of American and Soviet Military Hardware.:)

    It's obviously an F-15, but maybe somebody's thinking about a Sukhoi-27?

    Indeed. They can be mistaken for the other. I sometimes do a double take on a Mig-29 thinking its an F-14.

    Those things are scary manuverable. Go vertical, stop in a vertical position, fly foward while still pointed vertical, and then decide which direction you wish to start flying normal again. Before anyone asks, they have vanes on their jet engines at the back that make it possible. They are like weather vanes, only they direct thrust in all positions (360 degree capable).

    Wasn't that a SU-37 that did that, with it's inverted wings and all?

    If it did, then it has teh same engines and thrust vectoring. I havent really seen much on the -37, just the -27. Google might have some more answers.

    That'll never work in redneck country - no room for the gun rack in the back window!

    Actually the Soviet answer to the F/FB-111 was the SU-24 Fencer which if i am not mistaken is larger, slower, less manuverable, and like the F-111 now out of service. (only the Royal Austrailian Air Force still uses the Ardvark, it fills a range/payload/survivability niche that no, more modern design has been able to)

    the MIG-23 family is unrelated. and was NOT in response to a particular American design. the swing wing MIGS were the result of the soviet development of the same basic WW2 era German research the lead us to F-111 and F-14, and were more in keeping with the soviet "quantity over quality' outlook in regards to front line aviation. small, crude, easy to build, i think faster, but shorter ranged, aircraft. the variable geometry MIGS came in two major variants the Mig-23 fighter[pictured], and Mig-27 ground attack plane. the 23 adn 27 shared a basic airframe but each version had a "mission/type specific" nose section with electronics (or lack thereof) that the other version wouldn't need (the 27's nose was a flatter "duckbill" looking design that increased visability forward and down, and dispensed with the heavy, bulky, and in that role useless radar) and different wing/hardpoint designs.


    as for a caption......

    I stand corrected. I never knew what they were in response to, but I do know what they are and do.

    I realize I have seriously contributed to thread drift, but I have to request verification as to wether the RF-111 and the "wild weasel" version are still in service?

    Thanks,

    Oh yeah, on this vehicle aren't the gun racks located just to the left and right of the driver, under the wings?

    EF-111 Ravens are gone.

    No more "Sparkvarks". Well, at least in U.S. service, the Aussies may still use them.

    I was stationed at McClellan AFB, which was the depot for USAF and RAAF F-111 rebuilds, when the last one departed for Australia. It was a sad day.

    Now, Air Force electronic warfare crews share flight time with their Navy counterparts in Navy EA-6B Prowlers.

    BTW, that's not a Strike Eagle in the driveway. Strike Eagles are F-15E models, with tandem cockpits and conformal fuel tanks, among other improvements. The one pictured above is probably an earlier F-15C variant, known in the vernacular as just plain "Eagle". Still more than enough machine to ruin a person's day...
