The training version The MiG-23UB jet propelled airplane is the two-seat trainer version of the MiG-23. It first took off on 10 April 1970. The Hungarian Air Force had four planes in service between 1979 and 1997. NATO reporting name: Flogger C. Construction In the tandem seating arrangement the student sat in the front and the instructor in the back. The instructor’s cabin was built in the place of the flight recorder, part of which was moved to the nose. However, in this setup there was no room for the radar so the training version of the MiG-23 does not have a radar. The instructor’s cabin was not raised, therefore a periscope that opened using gears was installed as previously used on the MiG-21. With this the instructor could see forwards during take-off and landing. The MiG-23UB also contained an instrument with which the instructor could simulate certain hazardous situations for the pilot. In Hungary The Hungarian Air Force originally introduced three MiG-23UBs, but received two more after the end of the socialist era when Soviet troops withdrew. The model on display was made in 1979; serial number: A1037926
