    I believe it is better to make 2 vertical stabs and put it at the edge of the aircraft hull, similar to MiG-25/31 and F-15.

    That means the vertical stabs won't be blocked by wing and hull at high AoA.

    Russian aircraft corporation MiG working on outlook of new-generation interceptor — CEO

    "After the work is over, we’ll consider the issue of concluding a contract [with the Defense Ministry of Russia] on its [long-range interceptor system] development," the MiG chief said

    MOSCOW, August 21. /TASS/. The aircraft corporation MiG is working on the outlook of a new-generation interceptor for Russian aviation, MiG CEO Sergei Korotkov said on Friday.

    "We’re conducting R&D, which helps determine the outlook of a long-range interceptor system. After the work is over, we’ll consider the issue of concluding a contract [with the Defense Ministry of Russia] on its development," the MiG chief said.

    Meanwhile, Commander of the Russian Air and Space Defense Force Viktor Bondarev said the R&D work on creating a new interceptor to replace the Mikoyan MiG-31 (NATO reporting name: Foxhound) aircraft would begin no early than 2019.

    That means the vertical stabs won't be blocked by wing and hull at high AoA.

    Keep in mind this is an interceptor... so long range, high flight speed, ability to fly very high or very low if needed are all useful features along with very big radar/sensors, and significant payload of air to air weapons...

    High manouver capability, along with stealth are secondary and would actually likely reduce performance in more important areas.

    Twin fins is good for stability, but two fins is twice as heavy and increases drag compared to one.

    On the other hand if you have two they don't generally need to be as big as they need to be when you only have one...

    If the new aircraft has leading edge root extensions like the MiG-29/35 and Flankers then twin fins improve performance as they generally are in line with the energised vortexes generated by the LERXs, which improves control and stability...

    PAK-DP will feature aerospace defense capability

    Сегодня становится очевидным, что через какое-то время изменится характер угроз, исходящих от средств воздушного и воздушно-космического нападения. Произойдет их частичная интеграция, что потребует создания новых средств защиты. Руководство государства это понимает.

    .

    maybe something close to MiG-1.44? max speed was to be over 3000 km/h? (Google shows 3185 km/h)

    Yeah, similar news appared almost 2 years ago, we shall see what happens. My gut says it will be either MiG31 or MiG 1.44 based + borrowed technology from SU35/PAK-FA, nothing too exotic, coz they dont have alot of money to throw in that project imo.

    Interview with the head of the RAC "MiG" Sergei Korotkov.

    He says that a new aerial system is needed to solve the problems of air defence assigned to MiG-31, which actually increased - based on new principles, new materials. It will be an airplane. Work is already underway to determine the shape of the aircraft, and it is not an initiative

    Adapt and Overcome: New Russian Interceptor to Replace MiG-31

    The Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG is currently working on a new military aircraft to replace the MiG-31, according to media reports.

    Despite being one of the fastest combat aircraft in the world, the Mikoyan MiG-31 (NATO reporting name: Foxhound) supersonic interceptor went out of production in 1994. However, as Russia still requires this type of aircraft to protect its sizeable airspace, the Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG is already working on a new combat aircraft which will eventually replace the old reliable Foxhound.

    "The MiG-31 is in great demand to meet our country’s air defense needs. But it went out of production some time ago, although the functions assigned to the MiG-31 will still be required," the corporation’s CEO Sergei Korotkov told Russian Vedomosti newspaper. "We need a new aircraft to deal with these problems—which have, in fact, grown—based on new principles and new materials. And we understand what kind of airplane it will be: work is already underway to determine the aircraft’s design."

    Korotkov didn’t share any other details regarding the new interceptor. However, when asked whether the sixth generation fighter will be a manned or unmanned plane, he replied that UAVs are unlikely to completely replace manned aircraft in the foreseeable future.

    "I think manned and unmanned combat aircraft will coexist for a long time. Today, even though the intelligence of combat systems is growing rapidly, they still need a human to make a final decision," Korotkov remarked, according to Vedomosti.

    "For simple tasks, unmanned aircraft will be enough, but for complex ones, a human presence—either as an onboard pilot or a drone operator—is still needed."

    On the basis of the MiG-31, proposed to create a new high-altitude interceptor MiG-41

    http://www.aviaport.ru/digest/2016/01/20/377210.html

    High-altitude fighter-interceptor MiG-31, which according to experts still do not have analogues in the world, can become the basis for the creation of modern high-altitude combat aircraft MiG-41, said, "Interfax-AVN" on Wednesday, a member of the Duma Committee on Defense Alexander Tarnaev.

    "This view is not only deputies, but also the development and production of this unique aircraft, which they expressed in the visiting session of our committee in Lukhovitsy near Moscow (branch corporations" MIG "-" Interfax-AVN ") and Nizhny Novgorod plant" Sokol "where serially produced MiG-31, and is now undergoing modernization, "- said A.Tarnaev.

    He said that in response to the appeal of the State Duma deputies to the country's leadership, decided to include the project of creating long-term high-altitude interceptor, the new armament program with the terms of the realization in 2020. "This car will be the further development of the fighter-interceptor MiG-31, which is a decade ahead of its time. We do not exclude that its development can begin before 2020, since such a plane is very necessary to our armed forces," - said A.Tarnaev.

    According to him, some time ago there was a special meeting of the Defense Committee of the MiG-31 interceptor. The participating experts noted the unique characteristics of the aircraft. Managing Director - General Designer of "" OAO Alexander Inozemtsev, for example, said that the design features of the fuselage such that when you install new engines on a plane, he might even go hypersound.

    "As far as I know, all were built more than 500 high-altitude interceptor MiG-31. In the ranks is currently in the order of 100 machines. Until such time as the MiG-41 begins to enter the army, the last modernization of high-altitude interceptors will remain in the Air- Russian Space Forces, "- said A.Tarnaev.

    He said that thanks largely to the support of the State Duma deputies managed to preserve this unique aircraft in service and start its modernization. Today the modernized MiG-31BM has come into force. "Last September, during a working visit of members of the Duma Defense Committee in the Nizhny Novgorod region and visiting the plant" Sokol "we had the opportunity to personally make sure that there is a large-scale modernization of the MiG-31. The plant successfully fulfilling the state defense order for the modernization of MiG-31. It is pleased that the legendary plane again, "stands on the wing," - said A.Tarnaev.

    The supersonic fighter-interceptor MiG-31, developed by the Russian Aircraft Corporation "MiG". It is designed for long patrols and combat high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft, strategic bombers and low-flying targets. Aircraft was produced at the Nizhny Novgorod aircraft building plant "Sokol" In total, between 1976 and 1994 were issued 533 aircraft of various modifications.

    Earlier, Deputy Assistant Director General of RAC "MiG" Mikoyan Hovhannes (son Artem Mikoyan aircraft designer) told reporters that the fighter-interceptor MiG-31 has a high potential, he will be able to successfully operate a century.

    "This - is my favorite airplane. Even a hundred years, he can defend our sky, because it is - a unique machine that has no direct analogues abroad. It is made of steel and titanium, has a maximum speed of 3 thousand kilometers per hour. Four fighter-interceptor MiG-31, operating in a single information field, may block the front of 900 km, tracking and destroying dozens of foreign cars. " - O.Mikoyan said.


    The contract for the modernization of the 2019 order of 60 MiG-31 was concluded with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in 2011.

    The upgraded MiG-31BM has a modern management system, target detection range up to 320 km, the defeat - 280 km. The aircraft is capable of simultaneously hitting 6 and track up to 10 air targets. Due to the avionics and weapons of the new generation of the effectiveness of the MiG-31BM compared with the MiG-31 has increased by 2.6 times

    The Mig-31BM should get another upgrade in 2022. With a 1200 mm Super Irbis-E2 radar and L-band in the wings.

    Russia is the country that designed the J-20, not China. Buying the J-20 from China is akin to setting a big pile of money on fire.

    Well why J-20 if MiG-1.44 is still in Russia Smile AFAIK J-20 is not a long range interceptor. Stealth is not really key feature for heavy-interceptor: but range, speed,ceiling are. MiG-31 frame is aerodynamically hard to improve only when requirements will change form will follow (like max speed 5,000km/h)

    I presume updated concept of MiG 301/321 can have it´s chance

    Mig-41 apparently is designed to fly faster than missiles.. up to match 4.3. Very Happy

    Pak-da hypersonic and Mig-41 close to it.. sound like a dream come true.
    hopefully they do it .

    PAK-DA is supposed to be subsonic, not hypersonic. Flying wing design does not really allow even supersonic, let alone hypersonic speeds. And when its about "MiG 41", it will be most likely just deep redesign of MiG31 with new technologies and materials i wouldnt expect something like MiG301, maybee eventually something based on 1.44.

    Confirmation about the MiG-31 successor MiG-41

    The upgraded MiG-31 will be on the videoconferencing service until 2028

    After 12 years of fighter-interceptor MiG-31 finish its existence, because you can not always make upgrades to the aircraft, the head of the KLA delegation Sergey Korotkov. According to him, now we need to start developing a new aircraft to replace.

    After 12 years of fighter-interceptor MiG-31 finish its existence, because you can not always make upgrades to the aircraft, the head of the KLA delegation Sergey Korotkov. According to him, now we need to start developing a new aircraft to replace.

    So many different claims regarding MiG31, just 2 months ago we had claims how it can serve till at least 2040. with updates.

    With a new AESA radar and updated avionics and new engines it should be perfectly capable of doing its job for some time to come.

    It is rather heavy, but that is a direct consequence of needing to fly fast... some of the upgrades could include new composite materials and heat resistant metals... that new heat resistant aluminium would be ideal for upgrades as the reduced weight yet good tolerance to high speed (high temperatures) would allow an enormous improvement in performance and a simplification of maintainence and a serious weight reduction which would also improve acceleration and flight range and speed.

    A change of engine to allow bypass air to be used as a ramjet with the turbojet airflow cut down to almost nothing would allow much higher flight speeds without requiring too much exotic technology...

    The interceptor MiG-41 will improve all parameters

    http://rg.ru/2016/04/06/perehvatchik-na-baze-mig-31.html


    New fighter-interceptor based on the MiG-31 will receive an improvement of almost all important parameters, said in an interview with TV channel "Star" President and General designer of Ramenskoye design Bureau (RPKB) Givi Janjgava.

    - Fighter will be a continuation of ideas and technologies MiG-31: slightly increase the speed, the range of the radar, range of weapons. But the fact that it modernization is modern: its main feature is that it initially was a network plane, and this is very important, - said the expert. - In the modern world, planes don't fly solo: it is the complexes that include dozens of cars, and this significantly improves combat effectiveness. Now, the MiG-31 at a time when no one talked about network groups, had the avionics, which allowed to coordinate the group.

    2016sixth-generation Russian aircraft will hypersonic


    The whole interview in Tass:

    MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. Russian combat aircraft of the sixth generation will be hypersonic, its prototype will make its first flight until 2025, said on Thursday TASS the head of the Directorate of military aviation programs of the United aircraft Corporation (UAC), Vladimir Mikhailov.

    MOSCOW, June 9th. / TASS /. Russian combat aircraft will be the sixth generation of hypersonic, his prototype made its first flight until 2025, he told Tass on Thursday the head of the directorate of military aircraft of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Vladimir Mikhailov programs.

    "Experienced sixth generation aircraft made its first flight pattern before 2025 it will rise into the air, as we plan, no later than two -. Three years after the 2020 th", - said the source.

    Mikhailov, who previously held the post of commander in chief of the Russian Air Force, said that the appearance of long-term aircraft is already defined. "It will be a hypersonic at several Makhov, Single, invisible to the enemy, super-maneuverable, multifunctional, made of composite materials. The aircraft will have a booth, but he will be able to fly as a pilot in it, and without it, that is, he he will combine and manned and unmanned variant ", - said the representative of the KLA, noting that the development is planned to equip long-range hypersonic missiles.

    According to Mikhailov, the sixth-generation aircraft have conducted research projects, including engineering design.

    In early March the commander of aerospace forces of Russia Viktor Bondarev said that work is underway over the manned and unmanned versions of the sixth-generation aircraft in Russia. He did not specify how many years you may need to create an unmanned aircraft, but made it clear that it is not the next few years. At the same time Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Rogozin said that the Sukhoi Design Bureau presented the first design for the sixth-generation fighter. In 2014, the KLA stated that the first such aircraft will be built in the second half of the 2020s.

    Mikhailov is talking about a 6th generation fighter to replace PAK FA, so no, this is not MiG-41.

    Are you sure? I would not be surprised if Russian would skip a generation of the "Istrebitel perechvatchik" to make Mig-41 truly into a hypersonic plane. At this stage they have enough expertise to do so... and today with (sadly) weaponization of space they will need a plane that can go very high, very fast and very far... i feel that the new Mig-41 will have an additional roles to the existing Mig-31 roles. And these roles will be space related... like launching LEO microsatellites and shooting down american satellites. Americans currently have a project regarding low cost capability to quickly launch small payload satellites. This plane would be the perfect weapon to introduce such capability domestically and threaten the opposing force capability at the same time. Being able to quickly relocate to any friendly nation upon request and cut short american planning to "spread democracy". Nudol will be a good weapon but more oriented towards domestic defense - but if you want to conquer a specific frontier you have to "put boots to that frontier" and Mig-41 would be the perfect entry candidate for a near space vehicle. And beside we know perfectly well that a generation leap in fighter game history already happened. F-15 and F-16 were exactly those planes when america skipped the time and effort to develop a MIG-23 equivalent and instead opted for taking a risk and make a one generation ahead technology planes. I see no reason why Russians cant do the same. True there will be some risk involved but how long the Russians have been developing hypersonic propulsion? Airbreathing engines? The first successful flight test of a Scramjet was performed by Russia in 1991. more than 20 years ago! With current economic situation this might be a big risk to undertake now but prijects like these are planned for atleast a decade ahead and the economic situation then might be totally differrent. So i would not be surprised to see them skipping a generation - in fact it would be quite logical step.
