Preorder Expected Arrival - MAY 2023

In 1989 the 49th Corps of Air Defense (Kyiv) was formed by combining the 9th, 11th and 19th AD divisions. The 49th was made up of numerous units with one unit being the 933rd Fighter Aviation Regiment AD (Dnipropetrovsk-Kaydaki Air Base). By the end of 1991 there were around 550 MiG-25PD and MiG-25PDS in what was former USSR territory. With this break-up of the Soviet Union Ukraine inherited 79 MiG-25s with 40 MiG-25PDS/PU going to the 933rd but this unit only lasted until 1996 when it was disbanded. The MiG-25 “Foxbat” is a supersonic interceptor and reconnaissance aircraft. The prototype flew in 1964 and entered service in 1970 with an operational speed of Mach 2.83 but if needed Mach 3.2 possibly damaging the engines. The MiG-25 caused concern for the U.S. who demanded increases in the performance of the F-15 Eagle under development. The MiG-25s large wings gave the impression of a high weight of stainless steel used to manufacture the MiG-25.
