Description: The Mig-31, Foxhound NATO-codename, is a long range, two-seat, high-speed, high-altitude fighter aircraft developed on the basis of the proven Mig-25 Foxbat interceptor. It is powered by two D-30F6 fuel-efficient engines developing a top speed of Mach 2.83 mach at high altitude. Besides, it is fitted with an entirely new state-of-the-art weapons system providing multiple target engagement capability using long range air-to-air missiles. The weapons system also allows cooperative engagements within groups of Mig-31 aircraft sharing data between them. The Soviet Union's Air Force introduced the Mig-31 aircraft in 1981. About 500 Mig-31s were produced in the former Soviet Union and no export sales have been reported yet, despite Russia was marketing the aircraft to China in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The Mig-31BM is an upgraded version featuring improved air-to-air and air-to-surface capabilities with the inclusion of Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD) using anti-radiation missiles. It is fitted with upgraded avionics and digital data links, a new Zaslon-M multimode radar, color multi-function cockpit displays, and a new, more powerful computer. As of August 2010, the Russian Air Force plans call for the upgrade of 80 Mig-31 interceptors to the Mig-31BM standard by 2020. These aircraft will be equipped with R-73 short-range air-to-air missile, R-77 medium range air-to-air missile, R-33S and K-37M long-range air-to-air missiles as well as the latest Kh-31 anti-radiation missile. The new multimode radar is able to track up to 24 targets at ranges of up to 320 kilometers and engage eight of them simultaneously.
