MIG-23 is a terrible fighter.

Opening Argument

http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/the-mig-23-russias-worst-fighter-jet-ever-21791 

The MIG-23 was shot down many times by Israeli F-16s and F-15s.  It is not a dogfighter, but a speeder.

"Fast forward to today, and opinions of the MiG-23 are all over the spectrum. Former 4477th Squadron test pilots were afraid the engines would blow up or the aircraft would kill them. "

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? " ~Epicurus

"We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes." ~Gene Roddenberry

Arguments

  • No, the airplane has a great reputation and is a great fighter. It has a lot of strength and is very fast.
  • It's all relative.  What planes are you comparing it to, how are you using it, and how are all the planes in comparison being maintained?  The USA has many terrific aircraft but they need extensive upkeep.  A US design, if it is out of repair, may be far worse than a Russian design completely maintained.
