  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gbZi2YTxyc The MiG-23 is not as well known as some of the other MiG models. It is not as fast as the 25 or as cost-effective as the 21. The video linked above says that the 23's reputation was built by the early models and that the late models were much better. Little is ever reported about the PVO interceptor MiG-23P. It was the Spitfire to the Su-15's Hurricane although the Su-15 got all the "action" if shooting at airliners can be considered action. The MiG-23BN was an interim model before the MiG-27 ground attack model

He is an aero engineer and goes into actual depth with facts and stuff. He's like the anti-Blacktail anti-Matsimus YT channel.

  8. A little off topic but I have read that aircraft production stats in WW2 Germany were inflated because they counted aircraft destroyed at the factory and rebuilt twice. I forgot the source on that. Maybe someone else has knowledge of it. Adam Tooze is the source for this. The limiting factor on German WW2 armaments production was steel. They could not produce more ships, planes, tanks, shells, or machine tools without lowering production of one or more of the others. This is despite conquering the steel production of most of Europe. It seems like grossly incompetent managemen
