    F-14 vs MiG-23

    Check out our interview with former USN F-4 and F-14 pilot, Jon "Hooter" Schreiber. He chats about his time flying both jets including stories about breaking a Phantom on his last flight with VF-121 and intercepting a Vietnamese MiG-23 in the F-14!

    I do not believe the Vietnamese (aka, mini-Chinese) ever received any MiG-23s. could be Soviet 23s stations in Cam Ranh though.

    From the F-14 to doing cool things (Refrigerator)
    Nice one Robyoung

    Some perspective (carrier landing in the dark, single engine):

    I'm a Russia jet fan but why does this comparo always get made ? The Mig 23 was one heavy ugly dangerous machine. And there's lots of other aircraft to compare to

    The MiG-23 could accelerate like a demon and could pull 8.5Gs in its lightened form. Not great at BVR and miserably short legs but I think it's a tad underrated in a dogfight.
