THE MIKOYAN-Gurevich MiG-31 Foxhound is one of the most powerful interceptors flying today. It owes its outstanding capability to a combination of performance, weaponry, and avionics. Even though it first flew more than 30 years ago, it is still Russias most effective air defence interceptor. The aircraft forms the backbone of its air defence force and will continue to do so well into the 21st century.

Development

In the late 1960s, the Soviet Government began the search for a new long-range, extended endurance interceptor to replace its Tupolev Tu-28s and MiG-25 Foxbats. It was intended to counter the threat of low-flying cruise missiles launched from NATO/US B-52s and B-ls, which the MiG-25 was unable to do. MiG-25s functioned well as high-altitude interceptors with the help of ground control data links, as their original mission was to intercept the USAF’s high-altitude Mach 3 B-70 Valkyrie bomber. However, the B-70 never went into production on account of defence cutbacks. The Foxbat’s avionics and performance were largely ineffective against

Protects us, Pyramid

The capital of the Russian Federation — the only city on the planet, which is tightly protected by a missile defense system. It is called the A-135.

The cores it is radiolokatsonnaya station (RLS) "Don" 2H ", which is available in 30 kilometers north-east of Moscow, near the village of Sofrino. Similar to the Egyptian pyramid. A set of additional exploration targets for messages that are received from the system of missile warning, for their support and guidance for the purpose of interceptor missiles. It is clear that such objectives can not be the North Korean and Iranian missiles,
