The only similar MiG-23 exploitation that there is any credible information on was Have Pad (MiG-23MS) which took place during the mid 1970s and was declassified years back. Several authors obtained information via FOIA and some has appeared in books such as Red Eagles (Davies S) and Americas Secret MiG Squadron (Peck G).
