Naval aviation Pacific Fleet received another upgraded MiG-31BM

Marine aviation Pacific fleet (Pacific Fleet) replenished with another modernized fighter-interceptor MiG-31BM. This was reported by the press service of the Eastern Military District in the Pacific Fleet.


During the repair and modernization, the high-altitude fighter received the latest avionics and electronic systems, as well as improved tactical characteristics, which significantly increases its combat capabilities

- said in a BBO report.

The press service noted that in the near future the personnel of the fighter squadron will begin to prepare a new aircraft for combat duty on air defense. Earlier it was reported that the upgraded aircraft entered service with a mixed aviation regiment deployed at the Yelizovo Pacific Fleet airfield.

MiG-31 (NATO - Foxhound - foxhound) is an all-weather double supersonic fighter-interceptor of long-range radius. It is designed to intercept and destroy air targets in any altitude range, at any time of the day, in simple and difficult weather conditions. Without refueling, the aircraft is able to fly over distances of up to 3 thousand km. Its ceiling is 20,5 km. The average duration of a flight without refueling is 3,3 hours. A group of four interceptors is able to control the space, the length of which along the front is 800-900 km.

        There is no need to divide the people of our country into those who are “before” and who are “after”. I have lived in the USSR for most of my life and do not consider myself a stranger in Russia, “gouging”, “deceiving the USSR”. If you think that you have profiled, then write like that - not "about us", but "about me"

        In what you are right .. We and my generation are delayed .. Are you satisfied?
        But you have to raise with us .. So far you have no qualifications!
        It’s scary for you to leave the country ..! hi

      Serve then they still serve. The only question is - how long? After all, nothing has been invented to replace them. Yes, and did not even start to invent, it seems.

    MiG-31 can launch “Daggers”. The aircraft is potentially adapted to intercept medium-range ballistic missiles.
    We look to the future, however.

      No. The interceptor is an interceptor, and which with the “Dagger" is a special aircraft, modified for this case. Perhaps he will not be able to work simultaneously as an interceptor. Because (according to rumors) even the radar station is removed from them ... The famous ...

          I think the lack of an aircraft to replace the Mig-31 interferes. The point of taking planes from interceptors that are already in demand and will not be superfluous? Let the "Daggers" cling to the carcasses - there are more dope and places. And the MiG-31 will do its job.

    20 kilometer
    The MiG-21 also flew at an altitude of 20 kilometers. May 17, 1967, less than a month before the start of the Six Day War, a single MiG-21 with cameras took off from the Meliz air base, headed for the Gulf of Suez, and then to Jordan. And then - turned to the west and at an altitude of 20 kilometers passed exactly above the Israeli nuclear reactor. The Mirages that climbed in a hurry did not have time to gain height, the Hawks also did not reach the goal in height, so the future brigadier General Abd El Hamid Kadri returned home safe and sound.

        No, it was much earlier, before the MiG-21s began to be shot down as partridges. And it was not in the 72nd, but in the 67th year. May 17, 1967, less than a month before the Six Day War, a single MiG- 21 with cameras took off from the Meliz air base, headed for the Gulf of Suez, then - to Jordan. And then - turned to the west and at an altitude of 20 kilometers passed exactly above the Israeli nuclear reactor. The Mirages, who climbed in a hurry, did not manage to gain altitude, the Hawks also did not reach the height goal, so the future brigadier general Abd El Hamid Kadri returned home safe and sound. Ten days later, Captain Fuad Kamal, commander of the first Air Force MiG-21 squadron Egypt, passed at low altitude passed over Tel Aviv. This event had rather psychological significance, the Egyptians did not get any valuable information, but the fact itself is curious. And what, the Jews could not do anything about it? Could not. They just didn’t have time to react and raise the planes, and when the Mirages were in the air, it was impossible to catch up with the Egyptians. Scouts were pursued almost to their air bases, they demanded escort in a panic, aerial battles began, but they could not shoot anyone down. The Egyptians carried out their last flight over Israel on June 4, 1967. And what happened two days later, we already know. In general, those flights did not help the Arabs much. But everyone had fun. https://zen.yandex.ru/media/mlozha/odin-mig-nad-telavivom-ili-kak-eto-bylo-na-samom-dele-5e29b2b25d6c4b00af6b81a4

          Su-34 can also.
          Khabarovsk military pilots performed flights on Su-34 fighter-bombers, raising them to a height of 17 kilometers in conditions of Far Eastern frosts, the press service of the Eastern Military District said.

          Now the average daily temperature in Khabarovsk is below 20 degrees below zero. At an altitude of about 17 kilometers, the air is colder than 55 degrees below zero.

            And, like, in the summer at H ~ 17 km warmer?

    In that strategic area, all elements of the armed forces will have to be strengthened. This is an objective necessity.
    A good aircraft, it effectively protects our air lines, and now it is becoming a powerful strike unit.

      Twist, everything would be fine. They only receive, individually, repaired with minimal modernization of the weak level of the 90s, and not the shelves, new or substantially reworked. It is recycled, because there is nothing to modify, everything outdated - only replaced. And the new generation is no longer a luxury, but an urgent need. If you make empty promises and wait, you can never wait.

        It is clear that a little. I immediately recall "there is no money, but you ......", it is possible, you have to project it onto everything that we do.
        You can look at it objectively, there are arguments, but you need to objectively look at the situation in the world.
        We are not weak now, arguments "vigorous" for each aggressor there, if that ....
        This, now, is like complacency, for many.
        But it is necessary to objectively consider, first of all, how we are developing in general, how we are preparing to meet future challenges ... which will be, it is undoubted !!!
        There is no absolute certainty on this issue. This is just annoying.
        We will break through, as always, but do not want to sacrifice excessively again and again, saving ourselves, saving the world !!!
        Something like this.

    What to modify? Additional MIG-31 or other types? To launch the dagger, you need the appropriate speed. Otherwise, dvigun will feel very painful. He needs a powerful ramp of oncoming air. If it weren’t, then would these unique machines be redone?
