The 120th IAP arrived at Bagram and Shindad Afghanistan as part of the 23rd Air Army in 1988 and stayed until January 31, 1989. The 120th IAP was formed in 1969 at Brest Oblast and transferred to Domna in 1971. The 120th IAP was re-equipped with MiG-23s in 1978 and flew them until 1993 when they converted to the MiG-29. The MiG-23MLD was the most numerous MiG-23 variant in Afghanistan. The MiG-23MLD was nicknamed "Grif - griffon" by VVS crews. Soviet forces were in Afghanistan from late 1979 until late 1989.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23MLD Flogger-K

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.
