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
