MiG-31 or MiG-41. Russian interceptor.

MiG-31 or MiG-41 The advanced Russian interceptor planned for maturation will be able to combat hypersonic missiles and become the world’s fastest aircraft of this domain.

This was reported by the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Safe keeping, former Commander in Chief of the Russian Air Force Viktor Bondarev. It is expropriated that the interceptor’s combat radius will be in the range from 700 to 1500 kilometers. It should be armed with radically new air-to-air projectiles, as well as the world’s longest R-73 missile, flying 300 kilometers.

At the unchanging time, a missile KS-172 with a range of 400 km is also on the way. It is usurped that the development of the interceptor will begin in 2018. And in military parts it can start to arrive in 2025 – three years before the technical resource of the coeval interceptor MiG-31 is exhausted. It is called MiG-41, however, this is not all out correct, because at the moment only the stage of the preliminary design is being completed. At the Agreed Aircraft Corporation (USC), the project was named Perspective Long-range Interception Aviation Complex – PAK DP.

The chief work on its creation is to be performed by the Russian Aircraft Corporation (RAC) MiG. But this prodigals the question: does the VCS need a new interceptor? The fact is that the latest modification of the interceptor, the MiG-31BM, is the first-rate aircraft of this class in the world. Has the highest speed, equal to 3000 km / h. Atop it no one rises – the practical ceiling is 20600 meters, and the dynamic – 30,000 meters. It has the time’s longest R-73 air-to-air missile. And soon the firing range will expand to 400 kilometers.

The advanced Russian interceptor planned for development choose be able to combat hypersonic missiles and become the world’s fastest aircraft of this form. This was reported by the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Custody, former Commander in Chief of the Russian Air Force Viktor Bondarev. It is taken that the interceptor’s combat radius will be in the range from 700 to 1500 kilometers. It should be armed with radically new air-to-air projectiles, as well as the world’s longest R-73 missile, flying 300 kilometers. At the for all that time, a missile KS-172 with a range of 400 km is also on the way.

It is presumed that the development of the interceptor will begin in 2018. And in military elements it can start to arrive in 2025 – three years before the technical resource of the in the know interceptor MiG-31 is exhausted. It is called MiG-41, however, this is not in toto correct, because at the moment only the stage of the preliminary design is being ranked. At the United Aircraft Corporation (USC), the project was named Perspective Long-range Interception Aviation Complex – PAK DP.

The biggest work on its creation is to be performed by the Russian Aircraft Corporation (RAC) MiG. But this boosts the question: does the VCS need a new interceptor? The fact is that the latest modification of the interceptor, the MiG-31BM, is the unexcelled aircraft of this class in the world. Has the highest speed, equal to 3000 km / h. Unaffected by it no one rises – the practical ceiling is 20600 meters, and the dynamic – 30,000 meters. It has the circle’s longest R-73 air-to-air missile. And soon the firing range will spread to 400 kilometers. From the MiG-31 is required to catch up with the the opposition at any altitude and launch missiles on it. That is why the low for the class of fighters is laid in it the crowning operational overload – 5g. The F-14 is 1.

The quality of the interceptor defines such a character as the “ultimate interception threshold” – this is the removal of the target, in which the interceptor, eating started, is able to catch up and destroy it. At a target speed of 2. 35 M for the MiG-31, this parameter is 720 kilometers. 5 M, is reachable from a mileage not exceeding 250 km. At a target speed of 0. But the rocket for the F-14, AIM-54, was multitudinous long-range – 185 km against 160 km from the MiG-31. In over, she had the best handling capabilities, and a higher speed – 5 M vs. 4.

At the moment, the event to our interceptor has further decreased. F-14 replaced the deck multipurpose aircraft F / A-18E / F Wonderful Hornet. It is armed with a missile, the range of which is only 40 km. This reduction in the skills of air interception is understandable, because air defense of aircraft-carrying groups is entrusted to projectile armament. Well, the Russian interceptor has by now significantly increased its combat powers in connection with the appearance of the modification of the MiG-31BM. Almost all avionics has been superseded by it.

Thus, the new radar “Zaslon-M” is capable of detecting bombers that are at a footage of up to 400 km, and fighter jets – up to 320 km. At the same time 24 ideals are being followed, and 8 are being… That is, any commercially available fighter aircraft is upped with special equipment and becomes thus an interceptor. Its maximum step on the gas is 2500 km / h, the ceiling is 16,500 m. The farthest air-to-air missile is the Super R 530, which hustles up to 5 M and flies by 40 km.

The combat radius of the aircraft is 700 km. The British interceptor Tornado ADV (1985) has a cogent combat radius of 1,400 km. But the maximum speed and ceiling are small – 2340 km / h and 15000 m. The American AIM-120 ballistic missile, depending on the modification, has a range of 120 km or 180 km…. The Air Force of the PRC acts three hundred J-8 Finback, which in many respects borrowed the motif of our MiG-21. This is a universal fighter, which, among all other oppose missions, can also intercept enemy aircraft.

So with our existing interceptor at the import, we seem to have nothing to fear. PAK DP is intended, like the MiG-31, with a reckoning of 40 years or more. During this time, the US may well possess hypersonic flying platforms with missile weapons. Here, the alacrity is up to 5 M, which is spoken by the leaders of RAC “MiG”, and unmanned modifications, and hypersonic armament. Correct, it seems that there will be new aircraft in the VCS still later in 2025.
