Presumably then the izdeliye 33' had origins going further back into the early 1970s then?

No my dear Hood,

it was begun to study by MiG in early 1980s.
Incorrect. This "Project 33" is from the mid 1970s and was based on the MiG-23 with a new fixed wing with LERX. It was planned to use an R-100D engine (further developed R-35) and a "Коrall" (Coral) weapons system and the weapons of the later model MiG-23s (GSh-23, K-23/K-24/K-60/K-13M1) with the addition of K-14 and K-73.

Incidentally this is exactly what most people expected the MiG-29 to be.

Thanks for confirming that information Paul.
MiG certainly seem to have tinkering with LERX throughout the 1970s on their legacy delta and swept wing designs.
