The "Mikoyan OKB", was founded in 1939 on Leningradskiy Shassi (highway) with a series of buildings and a small factory for use in building prototypes. The OKB was at first, as the title implies, strictly an R&D facility that built prototypes. The Mikoyan flight test center is located at Zhukovskiy (called Ramenskoye, or abbreviated "RAM" by western intelligence and used in the intelligence designation of new aircraft such as "RAM-K", "RAM-J", etc.) and at Volga, on the Crimean peninsula, and other facilities on a temporary basis.     The MIG-23 was a Soviet designed fighter-bomber that utilized an innovative swing-wing design for improved performance. First flown in 1967, the MIG-23 NATO code name Flogger was used extensively by the Soviet Air Force and (East) German Air Force (DDR) and the air forces of several Middle Eastern nations. The Minicraft MIG-23 offers new markings for both Soviet and German (DDR) MIG-23. The kit features poseable variable wing sweep and positionable landing gear.

 There has always been the question of why did the US intell organizations recognize Ramenskoye as the name of the test facility when the Russians have always addressed it as Zhukovskiy. When the facility first opened the town of Ramenskoye was the nearest population center. There was a worker's construction camp, named Zhukovskiy, that eventually grew into a larger town and became the nearest population center and official Russian name for the facility.

The Red Eagles of Project Constant Peg
Peck. Written by the original "Red Eagle," Col. Gaillard R. Peck, Jr., this book examines the recently declassified Constant Peg project. You'll learn how Peck, unsatisfied with the USAF fighter training programs of the 1960s and '70s, established the 4477th Test and Evaluation Squadron in 1980 to train U.S. pilots by having them conduct air-to-air combat exercises against USAF-acquired MiGs. 352 pages, 6"x 9", hardcover.
