The link of the upgraded MiG-31BM interceptor fighters entered service with the 14 army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Central Military District, the press service of the district reported


Modernized fighter-interceptors MiG-31BM were put into service of the Central Military District pilots.


The military department noted that the aircraft were modernized at an aviation enterprise in the Tver region and replenished the fleet of the fighter air regiment stationed in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Due to the modern on-board radio equipment and weapons of the new generation, the efficiency of the MiG-31BM has increased almost three times compared to the MiG-31.

The MiG-31BM supersonic fighter is designed for long-term patrolling and combat with high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft, strategic bombers and low-flying targets. The aircraft is capable of simultaneously striking six and tracking air targets up to 10.

    These are the MiG-31 interceptors, - upgraded to the MiG-31BM standard. The modernization includes new avionics, digital data transmission channels, improved radar and cockpit (color multifunction displays), as well as new powerful fire control systems that allow the use of the latest smart bombs, air-to-air missiles and anti-radar missiles. The new radar has a detection range of 320km and is capable of simultaneously tracking up to 10 targets.

      In serial TTX it was said about 24 targets in escort mode and 8-9 simultaneous attack mode ......
      By the universality and speed of the combat mission of the 31st BM, a unique interception system ...

      The new radar - this is probably "loudly said" - is there any information on the radar and estimated characteristics ??? As it seems, the modernized Barrier-AM is worth it.

    In Russia, until 2020, more than 60 MiG-31 fighter interceptors will pass through the modernization program. This, as reported by RIA Novosti, said a representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Colonel Vladimir Drik. All aircraft will be upgraded to the BM version. The contract for the work was concluded with the United Aircraft Corporation in 2011. The work will be carried out as part of the state arms program of Russia for 2011-2020, the amount of financing of which is determined at the level of 20 trillion rubles.
    The upgraded MiG-31s ​​will receive a new weapons control system and radar stations, allowing them to detect targets at ranges up to 320 kilometers and hit them at distances up to 280 kilometers. MiG-31BM will be able to simultaneously accompany up to ten air targets with simultaneous guidance of weapons on six of them. Updated interceptors will be able to interact with ground-based anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as coordinate the actions of other fighters in the link. (Lenta.ru)

    - We must begin to do the glider again in bulk. At least 100 aircraft per year. So that in the event of a massive air attack on the Russian Federation, it could be repelled at least partially.
    And not PAKFa (each, it seems, $ 200 million) for three years to experience!
    (and promise to take it into service and equip it with troops in the year of commercials in 2118!
    Bare "United Russia" the sky!
    The northern border for the strike of the Kyrgyz Republic with the B-52, B-2 and B-1 is generally open.
    but Russia will never be able to revive MiG-31 production.
    Lost glider technology, Perm aircraft engine factory in ruin.
    In general - all this chatter is the next PR unit before their "Great Elections". And the keys to the sky (our sky!) Remain in the hands of the United States.

      unfortunately, the new MIG-35 and SU-35 aircraft of the Russian Federation are rather weak in speed and launch range

        - You know, these are completely different planes and for different purposes.
        MiGi (29th or its abbreviation-modification 35th) is a front-line fighter.
        Su-35 (a heavily modified modification of the 27th) - actually, without looking at everything they write, it’s real - a long-range fighter - a bomber.
        Yes, he can solve some of the tasks assigned to the MiG-31. Especially if you put a newer radar on it.
        However, this is not a specialized high-speed long-range interceptor.
        Su-35 can not accelerate to 3000 km / h, like the MiG-31 or MiG-25.
        The goal of such high speeds is to intercept the attacking B-52s over the Arctic. Until the moment when these heavy bombers have time to launch cruise missiles, reaching the launch point.
        Another MiG-25th was created for this purpose.
        Every second is precious here.
        Previously, the range of the Kyrgyz Republic was not as large as today. The launch point is shifting closer to US bases as they modernize their missiles.
        And even the high-speed MiG-25 is no longer quite an adequate aircraft for this purpose today. After all, NATO bombers now have to intercept almost over Greenland!
        To do this, they still have to withstand the battle with their fighters, an armada in front of the bombers.
        So: 1) Their speed should be physically as high as possible (around 3200km / h).
        2) Radar and missiles must see and shoot down the enemy at maximum distances exceeding the capabilities of the enemy (which today is not, unlike the beginning of the 80s).
        3) It is necessary to place them closer to the enemy. Ideal options for jump airfields are Franz Josef Land, Severnaya Zemlya, Novosibirsk Islands, Chukotka, Kamchatka (which is often physically impossible). And the strike group is generally at ice airfields near the North Pole.
        4) Such planes need Russia at least 1000.
        Only then can they fulfill their task at least partially.
        There is none of this and certainly never will be.
        All this talk about the “great modernization” of the MiG-31 is another PR move and cut the budget.
        We do not have a new good radar. We buy solid state heterostructure elements for AFAR in China. It is not clear where developed. They break down 2 weeks after being on duty (ask guys who returned from Syria).
        There are no Perm engines. Gliders are not available. Thanks to the USSR for laying a margin of safety in them, that they still have not collapsed.
        And most importantly - these aircraft are not enough. Disastrous. And no one will do them. There is no money in the treasury. They have long been stolen and "frozen" in Western banks.

            - At least recklessly think so.
            Such as Trump, McCain or others can not be sober. Although no one will give them a nuclear button (they simply scare), it is not known when the thunder will strike.
            At the time of the attack on the Shayrat, we experienced another Caribbean crisis (as at the time of the drowning of the Kursk).
            Our strategic nuclear forces were fully prepared.
            If they lost their nerves, their shooting destroyer with an escort could drown them. A couple of trivia.
            The answer is unpredictable. Further - escalation to complete mutual destruction.
            Remember how Trump's hands shook and his voice trembled? See the footage somewhere there.
            Even this ill-mannered psychopath understood what dangerous roulette was played.
            And 10 “Yars” is a weak argument.
            And bravado is useless. By 2020, NATO will have done more than 1000 missile defense systems.
            And even if we don’t throw 10, but 1000 bows on them, it will not be easier for us if the whole power of not only their ICBMs and BRLs, but also the Air Force falls upon us.
            Our country must possess sane air defense capable of intercepting everything that will fly to us through the air. And you can’t save on this. Technical capabilities - there is. MiG-31 is one of the important components of this system. The sky must be clear. But nothing (or almost nothing) is being done. Just chatter and advertising.
            With missile defense is more difficult. however, this direction needs to be developed.
            And the “Yars” should not be 10, but to give an adequate answer, a minimum of 1000 at present. And the BZHDK project was closed.

              No, well, as part of the strategic nuclear forces strategic nuclear forces (nuclear deterrence) strategy, the main task of air defense is not so much to bring down as to detect the enemy’s nuclear attack in time in order to be able to deliver a retaliatory strike.
              Our enemy does not count on his missile defense either, he proceeds from whether we manage to strike back or not. So far, all calculations show that we are doing well.
              That is why now there is a race for hypersonic missiles, as they provide the fastest possible flight time, such that the air defense systems do not have time to detect them. According to the calculations, the states will possess such somewhere by 2025, and we by 2023.
              So they don’t even jerk, so do we.

          For the MiG-31 with four missiles and two hanging tanks, launching missiles in the middle of the way, dropping the suspension tanks after they are produced and the PMK launched, the subsonic practical range and flight duration are 3000 km and 3 hours of 38 minutes, respectively.

          A subsonic practical range and duration without hanging tanks and retracted PMK is:

          no missiles: range - 2480 km, duration - 2 hours 44 minutes;
          with four missiles and launching them in the middle of the path: range - 2400 km, duration - 2 hours 35 minutes;

          Distance between cities Greenland and Murmansk, Murmansk Oblast, Russia ★★★ in a straight line (flight distance by plane) 2566 kilometers (1593 miles)

          3 hours 38 minutes ... imagine the crew MIG-31 ...

              2009 OJSC Svetlana together with OJSC VNIIRA and OJSC OKB Planeta developed the first domestic broadband amplifier for nanohetero-epitaxial heterostructures of gallium nitride over the 50-3500 MHz frequency band with 19 dB gain and 2 W output power.

            Otherwise, why would it be created.
            Although, I agree. He cannot fly even half way, even from the North Pole at full speed. Some drastic measures are needed to fill this gap. For example, improved aerodynamics.

              On the other hand, how to say. Again, a radius of 500 km. Range
              There should be about 1000 in full afterburner. And this is without decilin. In general, I have not found these data anywhere.
              They have a route to the pole from the North Land. You are not a map - take the globe. There are about a thousand and no F-16s. Farther to Greenland from the pole - less than a thousand. We’ll hit them in the back. And to the head (North of Canada and Alaska).
              At speeds even 2500 is 1 hour 20 minutes. If necessary - a jerk on 3000 or 3200 (25 is so flown).
              Well, from the polar airfield jump to Greenland less than 900 km. So at a speed of 3000 (achievable) - 20 minutes.
              And before reaching there, the MiG strikes with missiles (rocket speed M = 4).
              Do not have time to shoot bombers. they will have to do this from Canada.
              That’s it. It turns out not the fools were those who created them with very specific goals. And you directly baffled me.


              And they have long-range missiles. With conformal tanks. We just don’t know everything (especially from the Internet). They are not fools either. Not today, tomorrow and 5000 will do.
              It turns out that about 1000 of these aircraft are able to reliably cover Russia from a NATO air strike from the Arctic. In any case, from airplanes.
              You cannot save the country from long-range missiles with such weapons.
              Although some of the missiles, they also knocked down.
              Well, in addition, MiGs will provide air cover for our SSBNs. So that those from under the ice could shoot back successfully. Without looking at the NATO Air Force and other crap.
              This seems to be the main goal. Air supremacy over the Arctic.
              This aircraft is needed in large quantities!

            Why would they trample around the corner? There is a continuous adder.
            True, NATO can use this, launch strategists from there. But then we will have a time gain.

            On the other hand, how to say. Again, a radius of 500 km. Range
            There should be about 1000 in full afterburner. And this is without decilin. In general, I have not found these data anywhere.
            They have a route to the pole from the North Land. You are not a map - take the globe. There are about a thousand and no F-16s. Farther to Greenland from the pole - less than a thousand. We’ll hit them in the back. And to the head (North of Canada and Alaska).
            At speeds even 2500 is 1 hour 20 minutes. If necessary - a jerk on 3000 or 3200 (25 is so flown).
            That’s it. It turns out not the fools were those who created them with very specific goals. And you directly baffled me.
            It turns out, about 1000 of such aircraft are able to reliably cover Russia from a strike by NATO air forces from the Arctic.
            But this is for a jerk. In general, they should be on duty in the air above the pole. To take any NATO trough for escort (as they do).

              MiG-31 equipped with power plants D-30F6. This is a more economical (by virtue of bypass) engine built on the basis of the D-30, which was installed on civilian aircraft (in particular, on the Tu-134). For a supersonic mode, the engine received an afterburner.

              [Quote] Since our (USSR) arctic zone is very extensive, the aircraft to cover the north of the missiles were manufactured over xnumx units. [/ Quote]
