    @AMCXXL, I don't think this has been posted before on this thread.  Impressive stuff, MiG-31BM firing at least 3 R-37Ms that I can see of including the one already showing its smoke trail at the start of the clip.  Now if the genius who decided to add such a huge and irritatingly moving watermark for some stupid reason could get a little smack upside the head so he never does that again, I I would appreciate that.

    Awesome find gomig. Those R-37m travel so fast even at long range the missiles are travelling at about mach 4 streaking downwards towards you. As soon as its active seeker head lights up, it is already over doe you. They describe it as lightning out of the blue.

    Dang, bro!  That was quite the description you had me looking behind me for a second lol.  Imagine the receiving aircraft's MAWs sensors lighting up in the cockpit with all sorts of alarms and red lights and the old common, supposedly soothing female voice recording saying "Warning...Warning" "Missile lock" oooff talk about stress.  At that speed, by the time the warning bells are chiming there isn't much time left for any evasive tactics, especially using electronic warfare countermeasures and trying to jam the missile unless it's merely a flick of a switch.  Either way, what are the percentages of dodging the first missile let alone the 2nd as well.    

    After further reviewing that short clip, it appears the first missile is fired from another aircraft, one that is much closer to the one filming.  It's amazing it would be that close because you can even see the start of the smoke trail and where the missile ignites its propellent after being released from whatever aircraft was there, most likely another MiG-31BM, regardless of the depth of field.

    The pics are awesome but the video is better, you can see the flight path of r37 on the right which shows the perspective of the target longitudinally

    The missile weaves in an S-curve going from high to low to gain as much speed in the initial phase

    We can also see IFF on the zaslon as well as the cone of the radar waves

    Red is enemy, green is the missile
