In the 1960s, the MiG Design Department started to express an interest in variable-sweep wings. The MiG-23 was the result of fairly simple specifications: to produce a fighter plane flying at Mach 2-Mach 2.5 with much shorter take-off and landing rolls.
This aircraft was one of the best front-line fighter planes in the 1970s. The MiG-23 has often been upgraded and is still being used in a few air forces around the world. The last versions are propelled by the Tumanski R-35 turbojet.

This unique piece is composed of the 3 first stages of the R-35. It is entirely made of titanium and has been mirror polished.
The 3 stages are on an axis mounted on bearings. Due to its considerable weight, the stainless steel base of the piece is fitted with wheels which can be replaced with fixed legs made of carbon.
