МиГ-31, MiG-31 Foxhound

Sit down, relax, our political officer will attend to you shortly. Vodka might be running scarce, but the possibilities for an open discussion remain almost unlimited!

МиГ-31, MiG-31 Foxhound

Post by Shamansky » 01 Feb 2008 17:44

Russian main interceptor is not Su-27 but MiG-31. We have been dreaming together with Breakshot to finally have MiG-31 (at least one of the earlier types, before modernization) as flyable. There was even some dedicated 3D model shown on Russian side of forums.eagle.ru - that hopefully will be included in DCS.

* heavier then some airliners

Why I'm recalling MiG-31? My Stage6 tag watch just notified me about this new upload to S6:

Can't agree. The diamater of its radar dome pretty much beats F-15. With new AESA radar of this size included and its peformance MiG-31 is a great enemy to any F-15.

Some images of the MiG-31 I found... Absolutely love this aircraft. Wish some third party developer would model it for DCS:World. Even at FC2 level, it would be great...

Some pics...

Can't believe they store such aircraft in such miserable conditions. I guess soviet aircrafts are really built for the rigors of war!!!!
