A pair of upgraded high-altitude fighter-interceptors MiG-31BM entered service with the air regiment of the Central Military District

The Russian Aerospace Forces have been replenished with modernized MiG-31BM high-altitude fighter-interceptors. A pair of upgraded aircraft entered service with the Fighter Aviation Regiment of the Central Military District stationed in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.


The fighter jets made a flight from the place of repair to the place of permanent deployment, overcoming about 4 thousand kilometers. As part of the modernization, the aircraft underwent a comprehensive factory repair of technical components and assemblies, avionics, navigation equipment and electronic systems were updated, and tactical characteristics were improved. The efficiency of the MiG-31BM in comparison with the MiG-31 has increased two and a half times.

The received aircraft will be on combat duty for air defense and airspace protection in the region.

It is worth noting that work on the modernization of the MiG-31BM does not stop, in 2020 the Ministry of Defense announced the start of R&D in order to extend the flight life of the MiG-31BM to 3,5 thousand hours. Currently, the upgraded interceptor fighters have a resource of 2,5 thousand hours.

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.

    We need a couple more .... You need to hand over the quartets. feel

      there was a MiG-31M project for 6 R-37 missiles - you need to increase the BC of the far arm by 50%

    Unfortunately, this pair of MiG-31s ​​did not arrive, but returned to service. Now, if a couple of new ones were made in Nizhny Novgorod, it would be very cool.

      they are unlikely to make new ones, and the operation of the old ones is a big question, engines for them have not been produced for a long time, and the resource of aircraft engines is small. So the remaining MIGs will save their resources, they won’t drive in the tail and in the mane, most likely they will use them as carriers of Daggers (MIG-31K): it took off, gained altitude and speed, fired a rocket and go back to the runway.

      Actually, the PAK DP program has been in development for a long time, how it flies, you will be informed, and why is the MiG-31BM bad? Well, apart from the cost, it performs its functions, and shoots down the outlying fighters, and works on the ground, but there’s nothing to say about the modification of the MiG-31K, the killer of bunkers and surface ships

    Why to the rear. And not in the frontline areas. So they get sabotage flights in Engels. A would be 31 in the air near the front. I could track and direct or destroy it myself. Where are the generals and commanders who think and predict the actions of the enemy?

    The first fighter in the world with a PAR. But for some reason, AFAR has not yet been put on it .... it’s clear that it’s expensive, but it would give a wonderful aircraft a new life! With such a flight potential and such an antenna, it would still be 20 years old boldly defended the frontiers

      Afar is a double-edged sword, PAR is also not bad, it has higher power and, accordingly, detects air targets further

            And what about the power? If we take the radiation power of the F-22 and Su-35S radars, then they are approximately the same, and Zaslon has lower power than these two, and there is no connection between the type of array and power. But Zaslon is replete with non-trivial methods for increasing the detection range, which these two cannot be implemented due to a certain "primitive" principles of their construction.

              Specifically, about Ibris, standing on the SU-35, they say that he has a particularly powerful emitter. They talk about it as one of the benefits. And then it suddenly turns out that this is an American AFAR glowing like a Christmas tree :)

                The radiation power of the F-22 radar is slightly lower than that of the Irbis, and whether it will be possible to detect radar radiation or not will be determined not by power, but, let's say, by spectral density. Therefore, there is a division of signals into simple and complex in radar, and the main characteristic of this is the so-called "signal base", a characteristic that links the signal duration and its bandwidth. And the more the signal is "smeared" over the frequency band, the more difficult it is to detect. And it turns out that the concept of "shines" does not depend on afarity and other nonsense, but depends on the type of signal used !!!

                  Isn't the AFAR signal with a large number of radiating elements by default "smeared" over the frequency band?

                    Not!!! The number of elements has nothing to do with the parameters of the signal!

      The concept of PAR includes both AFAR and PFAR. On Mig -31 there is a PFAR Barrier.

    New ones have not been released for a long time. The aircraft is a deep modernization of the 25th, which was once developed in the 60s.
    I remember a scandal about 10 years ago, when some plant (like even Sokol) scrapped two new buildings from 31, which had been lying around in their backyards for years ...

    In your opinion, more than 4 t.km to the line of contact and the same amount back is it normal for 31 with a ferry range of about 3500, it seems? Even from the factory airfield in Nizhny it is too far, and here is Krasnoyarsk !!!

    All this is good, but where is the star and the Ministry of Defense trumpeting about? Why do we still screw up over and over again, although we have this and that, which threatens the whole world almost? Why are we not in the chair of Kyiv, or at least Drussel? Meanwhile, "it is not known where" the 141st Sovdepovskie are falling. And we keep reporting success in the person of just us ... the general who put it on.

    Is there an engine upgrade as well? Or a replacement for something else? New materials, lightweight ones are used? In fact, the purpose of modernization is precisely to test the new to increase resources of all kinds. The feeling that it is also used for cutting? Is it really possible for someone in the current situation to raise their hand for this and not wither?
