DESCRIPTION:

MiG-25 Picture AlbumWhen the US Air Force began developing the B-70 bomber capable of delivering nuclear weapons to the Soviet Union whiletraveling at Mach 3 at altitudes over 70,000 ft, the Soviets started planning a new super-fast, high-altitude interceptor. Though the B-70 project was eventually abandoned, the MiG-25 program continued, eventually producing the fastest fighter in the world.

The MiG-25 is designed only for high-altitude fight and has correspondingly terrible low-level performance and dogfighting characteristics. Although reconnaissance and defense suppression variants of the MiG-25 were developed, the aircraft's range of applications has always been limited.
As a result, Mikoyan Gurevich later designed an improved MiG-25, the MiG-31, with improved low-level performance for use in more common attack fighter roles. An interesting note is that the first air-to-air kill of the Gulf War is believed to be a US F/A-18C Hornet shot down by an Iraqi MiG-25 on 17 January 1991.
