And also an F-15 he has to run and climb in a hurry, because of the altitude of the Mig-25. At that altitude the F-15's maneuverability does not matter. The F-15 has to climb and then go down and, I think, without drop tanks.
but if the f-15 is the attacking strike fighter the mig-25 will have to go down to its level to intercept it ? the ground clutter will make its SARH missiles useless but the IR R-40 still have a chance ?
