At the beginning of the 2000s, together with Kazakhstan, our country was developing another version of the famous interceptor. MiG-31I Ishim was supposed to launch subcompact spacecraft into orbit. The 10-meter rocket with a mass of 10 tons was supposed to start from the MiG and bring into space from 120 to 160 kg of payload.
In modern Russia, the MiG-31 seems to be becoming the first carrier of a hypersonic weapons mass production. The first Dagger missiles have already been taken on test combat duty in the southern regions of Russia.
