The Mig-31 'Foxhound' was developed as the replacement of the Mig-25 'Foxbat', the prototype Ye-155MP took the first flight on 16 September 1975. As the heaviest fighter/interceptor in the world, the Mig-31 is much heavier than other similar aircrafts. At the same time, two powerful D-30-F6 engines and a stronger airframe gave it a top speed to Mach 2.8 at high-altitude and Mach 1.23 at low-altitude. The Mig-31B were put out under the threaten of the western countries in the 1980s, they can be regarded as the mixture of the Mig-31BS which developed from the basic Mig-31 sans suffixe and the Mig-31DZ, with a series of new avionics and WCS made it much more efficient than any other version.
KH-47M2 is the first and only air-based hypersonic air-launched ballistic missile in the world. The appearance is very similar to the appearance of the Russian main military tactical missile "Iskander-M". The fuselage / wing integrated design is adopted. The projectile is cylindrical and has no obvious intake port, and the tail has obvious "ten" shaped small pneumatic tail. It weighs about 5 tons, with a length of about 7 to 8 meters, a diameter of about 2 meters, and a wingspan of less than 0.5 meters. The head of the missile has a slender double cone streamline shape, and the engine compartment of the central engine shows an obvious crown. The maximum speed is up to 10 Maher. At the same time, both the ballistic missile and cruise missile's functional characteristics can carry various high equivalent warheads. It is called "the most difficult missile to intercept in the world". It is currently carried by the MIG -31BM.
