MIG-31B Foxhound - Russian Air Force, Blue 08, Russia

Historical Note:


Between 1976 and 1988 production began on the first series of the baseline MiG-31. There were 519 aircraft produced during this period at the Sokol factory and 40 of these aircraft would later be upgraded to MiG-31BS. The next series ran from 1989 to 1991 and consisted of 101 MiG-31DZs followed by the final batch of 69 MiG-31Bs between 1990 and 1994. The Kazakhstan Air Force retained 50 MiG-31Bs after the breakup of the Soviet Union. The MiG-31B received upgraded avionics and an in-flight refueling probe and new R-335S missiles.

Designed as an enhanced version of the MiG-25, the MiG-31 was first flown on September 16th, 1975.

Russia's MiG-31 Foxhound: Mach 3.0 Monster Supersonic Assassin (12:10)
Russia's MiG-31 Foxhound Fighter jets Moscow's Old Mach 3 Monster - The Mikoyan MiG-31 Foxhound is a supersonic interceptor aircraft developed for use by the Soviet Air Forces. The aircraft was designed by the Mikoyan design bureau as a replacement for the earlier MiG-25 Foxbat. The MiG-31 is based on and shares design elements with the MiG-25. The MiG-31 has the distinction of being one of the fastest combat jets in the world. It continues to be operated by the Russian Air Force and the Kazakhstan Air Force following the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Russian Defence Ministry expects the MiG-31 to remain in service until 2030 or beyond. A long-range supersonic interceptor aircraft, the MiG-31 Foxhound, a two-seat aircraft developed principally for the Russian and Kazakhstan Air Forces, was derived from MiG-25 Foxbat. The maiden flight of the MiG-31 took place in September 1975. Mikoyan is the designer and manufacturer of the MiG-31. MiG-31 can work efficiently in all weather conditions while fulfilling visual flight rules (VFR) and instrument flight rules (IFR), day and night. It is equipped with state-of-the-art digital avionics. MiG-31 was the first soviet fighter aircraft to have true look-down and shoot-down capability. Approximately 500 MiG-31 aircraft have been produced, out of which 370 were delivered to the Russian Air Force and 30 are in service with Kazakhstan Air Force. The remaining aircraft were upgraded to different variants under several upgrade programmes. Only some of the Russian MiG fleet have been upgraded to MiG-31BM standards under the upgrade programme. The MiG-25 Foxbat was unable to fly at low altitudes. The installation of inefficient turbojet engines led to decrease in combat range at supersonic speeds and an increase in the speed gauge of the MiG-25 resulted in the destruction of the aircraft’s engine. In an effort to overcome the drawbacks of the MiG-25 Foxbat, the MiG-31 was developed to fly at low altitudes with required supersonic speeds. MiG-31 is equipped with efficient low-bypass-ratio turbofan engines, which allow an increase in combat range.
