MiG-23 in Cuban service
The first MiG-23BNs arrived to Cuba on June 6th 1978; they were 12 Mig-23BN Flogger H serial FAR 710-721 and 2 MiG-23UB Flogger C serial FAR 700, 701.
The MiG-23s participated in the first exercise against the Soviet Navy on a visit to Cuba, attacking their ships at Matanzas on October 3rd 1978. The second operation called Granma XXII was on December 1978, training on bombings raids and getting plans ready, for possible bombing missions against Homestead and MacDill Air Force Base in South Florida. Following that, the MiG-23 appear for the first time in public, during a military parade of the XX Anniversary of the Revolution on January 2nd 1979. Lt. Colonel Rafael del Pino commanded 9 MiG-23 which passed through Revolutionary Square in three groups with the variable wings on 16º, 45º, 72º position. The MiG-23s were based at San Antonio de los Baños. Colonel Henry Perez Martinez flew 340 hours in 44 months from 1978 to 1981 flying MiG-23BN and UM since he had become one of the squadrons instructors. The first commanding officer of these squadron, was Lieutenant Colonel Bismark Torres Sosa, with three wings commanders, Captains Edelmiro Sanchez, Mario Sierra, and Albio Cordoba Mantecon. Major Eduardo Gonzalez Serria was the chief of tactics and shooting, when in October 1983, the US invaded the island of Granada where Cuba had troops, the coordinates for different objectives in south Florida were given to Eduardo, by the Ministry of Armed Forces, to input personally into the navigation computer of the MiGs-23BN, in complete secrecy without the Soviet assessors finding out.
Major Eduardo Gonzalez Serria was also the pilot that was send to Boca Chica Naval Base (Key West, US) to pick up a MiG-23BN serial 722 that Mayor Orestes Lorenzo had use to escape from Cuba to the US, in 1991, according to my sources Eduardo was one of the best pilots they had seen, without getting any advanced training in the Soviet Union, Eduardo was let go from the DAAFAR only about a year later and has been a Taxi driver in Havana since then, what a change.
