    Gotta give it to the F-14, it looked way ahead of its day.

    Speaking of the devil... this is one of the last Tomcats that flew on a combat mission. Photo was taken on February 25, 2006, aboard the CVN-71 TR.

    I always loved this bird, and though I like the superbug, it's really sad too see decks of the US CVN's without it.

    That's a good looking Flogger. I'm more into the MLD than the BN, but is still nice looking. The BN should have evolved swivelling hard points under each wing and moved away from armor towards sensory. The airframe was multi role, but the actual variants never were multipurpose. Too bad they are fading out their usefulness fast this past decade. One of my favorite 3rd gens.

    Same.

    Keep in mind by the 80s the USSR gave up on the original intention for the MiG-23BN/MiG-27 and Su-17 variants to be fighter-bombers (due to Teen fighters), so the multirole ability really was only a title. MiG-27K did have a more dedicated ground attack sensor suit (Kaira), but that abandoned in favor of cheaper Klen.

    Isn't that a MiG-27 as opposed to a MiG-23BN?

    MiG-27M by the look of it.

    MiG-27 is an extention of the MiG-23 family. MiG-23B was the first move towards what later was redesignated MiG-27. I never bothered to distinguish between the many offshoots.

    It's easy. MiG-23BN has the same complex intake vanes like all fighter Floggers. MiG-27s have simple fixed intakes and therefore the whole mechanism replaced by short fixed vanes.

    Another way to tell them apart is buy looking at the weapons pylons. The two forward fuselage stations on the MiG-27 were moved under each air intake while on the MiG-23 series they are inboard on the center fuselage itself. I presume this was done to allow the MiG-27 to carry larger stores on those locations.

    One question, how does the vapor trail at wing tips form and why does it look so smooth and symmetric ?
