“During the main stage of the training, pilots of the Central Military District will carry out combat firing at high-speed low-flying targets simulating cruise missiles of a conventional enemy and will work out clearing the airspace for long-range aircraft aviation", - says the release.

The press service noted that “a six-hour non-stop flight over a length of more than 5,5 thousands of kilometers passed in the airspace of three federal districts with two refueling in the air over the Novosibirsk Region and the Perm Territory”.

“The supersonic MiG-31 interceptor fighter is designed for long-term patrolling and combat with high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft, strategic bombers and low-flying targets. The upgraded MiG-31BM has a modern control system, the target detection range reaches 320 kilometers, and the defeat is 280 kilometers, ”the report says.

    It has long been known ... (that they can fly like that) They were created for this in the USSR!
    The territory is large, and the USA has become impudent ... So they created one to spread rot on them

        The teachings are just in time. GDP said: if necessary, the group will quickly increase in Syria. In the meantime, you can practice. Moreover, there is a reason: for long-range aircraft.

        Long-range aircraft, as a rule, are not intended for conducting air battles. Strategists simply cannot fight fighters or cruise missiles. Of course, I’m not talking about modern electronic warfare systems on airplanes. This is a separate battlefield between aircraft and here, too, whoever manages to drown out is the winner, and the enemy can have his own electronic warfare.
        Therefore, long-range aircraft (strategists), as a rule, are accompanied by fighter aircraft, clearing the airspace in front of them.

          You are quoting this concept of World War II when fighters covered bomb carriers ... Now the reality is that long-range strategic aviation aircraft fly along a trajectory that does not allow fighter aircraft to intercept themselves in range, and weapons (CR) allow you not to enter the enemy's air defense zone. So our "strategies" supposedly "intercept" when they return after imitating a strike on the enemy, but in fact this is done on purpose, for reconnaissance purposes, in order to "open" the enemy's air defense and response time. The "strategists", in terms of the range of use, do not allow escort for their cover because of the short range of fighters, but here the ferry line with two refueling ... enemy infrastructure, such as the use of anti-radar missiles, the use of fuel and energy assets, etc.

    Handsome men ahead of their time good
    Today, February 28, the deputy of the State Duma’s defense committee, deputy Alexander Tarnayev, announced that the new MiG-41 will be created on the basis of the obsolete MiG-31 fighter-interceptor

    "The corresponding decision has been made by the Chief of the General Staff, he has already signed a document on research work on the MiG-41," he stressed, adding that the new MiG-41 will combine all the advantages of the aircraft.

    In addition, several hundred MiG-31 interceptor fighters, after repair, will continue to "serve" in the Russian Air Force.


    The MiG-31 aircraft, created in the 70s of the 20th century OKB-155, is a two-seat all-weather long-range supersonic all-weather fighter-interceptor. Its purpose is to intercept and destroy air targets at extremely small, small, medium and high altitudes, in simple and difficult weather conditions, day and night.

        240-250 now it seems. But it was planned to write off 150 pieces, and leave about 100 pieces in the variants of BM, DZ and BS. Do not know where there are several hundred. Maybe something was taken out of conservation.

    In Kansk, the airbase leaves some strange impression: you are driving along the federal highway, by the side of the road - a fence, immediately behind it - MiGs. As it is not solid. Space in Siberia is not enough?
