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 Russian Air Force Mig-31BP, formerly known as Mig-31K, is a further variant of the Mig-31BM developed to release special weapons such as the Kh-47B Kinzhal hypersonic cruise missile. In September 2018 rumors emerged that the Mig-31 interceptor might be used to launch a new anti-satellite weapon with the aircraft variant involved with the new weapon being the Mig-31BP. The aircraft itself has no under wing pylons attached and may be provided with state-of-the-art navigation equipment for optimal release of special weapons and payloads.
