    Correct. I just checked and SR-71 top speed is 3,540 km/h while MiG-31 is 3,000 km/h. Not that big of a difference actually.

    I always thought that SR-71 is much faster...

    Looks like that if VKS does go for new interceptor it will really be out of this world.


    EDIT:  Speaking of those two, I just stumbled on this from 2013:

    How the Mig-31 repelled the SR-71 Blackbird from Soviet skies

    Curious how the article implies the SR-71 flew within Soviet airspace, considering it did no such thing...

    The SR-71 has side looking sensors and flew along the border of the Soviet Union most of the time.

    Sometimes due to the shape of the border it will have clipped into Soviet territory for very short periods... not long enough to allow interception and certainly not when Soviet interceptors were around...

    I'm thinking of the annoying neighbourhood kid who pokes his tongue out and steps on your manicured lawn with one foot while you're watching... then when you open the front door the little f*cker runs away giggling... and brags to his idiot buddies that no-one can catch him...

    Those USSR untermenschen must have had some nice late 1960s and early 1970s SAM systems to keep America's best
    spy plane dancing just outside its borders. Even after the 1990s collapse, Russian development of advanced missiles of
    all types did not stall and nothing was unlearned. American clowns who think that they own humanity's IQ are going to be
    in for a terminal shock when they face Russia's ABM shield.

    Actually a wee bit more sinister than that...

    Those annoying kids are not from the neighbourhood... they are criminals from a long way away and they are not putting toes on the lawn for giggles... they want to know who responds and how quickly, and where all the exits and entrances are and what sort of responses to expect...

    They aren't neighbour kids being annoying... they are home invaders planning a new attack.

    It creates a situation where nothing is believed to be innocent anymore so even a delivery truck could end up being shot at... simply because the house owners are stressed and have been pushed and pushed...

    Many of these so called recon flights have been made by obsolete bombers like the old Canberra bomber and other types with RB designations... which just makes things worse.
