DT Variant - Bekaa Blues - Syrian Aircraft (Pt1)

The Syrian airforce at this time appears from my simple research to be mainly MiG-21 and MiG-23s.  I have the Osprey for the MiG-21 in Arab Service which has some good shots but have had to rely on help to put together something for the MiG-23.

I had four MiG-23 which had been undercoated for my Iran-Iraq project.  I had completed a range of MiG-21 and Su-2x series aircraft but hadn't progressed the MiG-23.  So downside is that need another set of MiG-23 to Join the Iraqi Airforce.

In the meantime the four have been pressed into service as Syrian fighters for some late 1970s - Early 1980s themed games.
