Libya's first air force was established in 1951 as the Royal Libyan Air Force but after a 1969 coup that saw Col. Gaddafi seize power the name was changed to the Libyan Arab Republic Air Force. This brought about the aligning with the Soviet Union that would supply Libya with arms and aircraft. Some of the aircraft supplied were MiG-17/19/25 fighters and Tu-22 bombers and Mil Mi-24 Hind helicopters. Libya received a total of 170 MiG-23MS. MiG-23MS 6915 was C/N 039126915 and delivered to Libya in 1976.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23MS Flogger-E

Designed as a heavier, more powerful improvement on the MiG-21 Fishbed, the MiG 23 first flew on June 10, 1967. This fighter/bomber had variable-sweep wings and could achieve speeds greater than Mach 2. It was the first Soviet aircraft capable of firing "beyond-visual-range" missiles, and the first to have look-down/shoot-down radar. As one of the most successful military aircraft built during the Cold War, MiG-23s were produced in large numbers, with more than 5,000 coming off of the production lines. Although retired from service in the former Soviet Union, many MiG-23s are still in service with various export customers.
