    Is this a photo recce version, hence all the stars?


    Yes, a Mig-25RB, bort red "46"; you can see, in the nose, the cameras. This Mig-25RB, if i'm correctly reading, brings the name of "Valentin Sugrin", Hero of the Soviet Union (the red badge with the star, on the side of the air intake). The aircraft brings also the red banner of the Revolution's Guards, and almost 40 recon missions, (afaik) above all over the Cecenia. 47° indipendent regiment of the Guards. Voronez-Baltimore air base (or Monkegorsk?).
    The Mig-25RB is very fast, and it has a slightly shorter wing, with specific tip-pods, afaik with ecm.
