    Are you sure? We know the R-73 can intercept AAMs, it would certainly be an interesting insurance, in case some enemy manages to put a missile in range to hit the MiG.

    MiG-31s are not expected to meet enemy fighters.... the PVO had both MiG-31s and Su-27s so I would suspect any risk of air to air combat the Su-27s would be vectored in to the fight rather than the 31s.

    I would say they r heavy fighter-inteceptors- they defeated Libyan Su-22s & MiG-23:

    Hahahaha... those heroic F-14s shot down two Su-22s when one of the Su-22s dropped a drop tank and the brave heroic F-14s panicked and thought they were under attack. In reality there was zero chance of an Su-22 starting combat with an F-14 by launching an AAM at them head on...

    It would be vectored by GCi to launch its missiles at the fighters. Then if it miss su-27 will go in and have the advantage as the enemy would try to dodge r-33/37 and not see the su-27.

    Is MIG involved in the Chinese FC-31 program at all? Perhaps they are a consultant and agreed to do this with the Chinese as long as they could also use the IP.

    I very much doubt there would be any enemy fighters where the MiG-31s operate but any that were there would more likely be engaged by Su-27s with long range R-27E missiles than with R-33 missiles... the R-33 and R-40TD missiles the MiG-31s carried are optimised for use against large heavy aircraft that require large warheads to destroy.
