    I know about it, however...
    Under PAK-DP, the project of a future interceptor is being worked on..
    Until the official project name is changed to MiG-41 or MiG-XX, that project is PAK-DP.
    Even wikipedia does not label the aircraft as a MiG-41.

    Well the point is that the programme name is PAK DA, like the PAK FA for the Su-57, but while MiG can call their prototype MiG-41 it is the Russian Air Force (or Army or Navy) that gives the aircraft its designation, so they can use any designation they please... until it enters service or normally before we wont find out what it will be officially called, though MiG-41 is a reasonable guess for it.

    The air regiment in the Krasnoyarsk Territory received upgraded MiG-31BM
    09.12.2022

    Two modernized supersonic high-altitude MiG-31BM fighter-interceptors entered service with a fighter aviation regiment stationed in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the press service of the Central Military District (CVO) reported.

    The received combat vehicles will be involved in combat duty for air defense and airspace protection in the region. Due to the modernization of on-board radio electronics and new weapon systems, the efficiency of the MiG-31BM compared to the MiG-31 has increased by two and a half times.

    The MiG-31 is a Soviet and Russian two-seat, long-range supersonic all-weather fighter-interceptor. Developed in the 1970s at the Separate Design Bureau of Plant No. 155 (now JSC RAC MiG).

    The aircraft is armed with a six-barreled 23 mm cannon, various modifications of the MiG-31 can be equipped with various types of air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles, as well as bombs. One of the modifications of the fighter-interceptor, the MiG-31K, is the carrier of a hypersonic missile as part of the Kinzhal complex.

    The air regiment in the Krasnoyarsk Territory received upgraded MiG-31BM

    These two aircraft are most likely aircraft that have passed major overhaul after a decade.
    The Kansk regiment was rearmed with MiG-31BM between 2011 and 2012, and last year it began to undergo scheduled repair after 10 years of service.

    2 MiG-31BM fighter-interceptors arrived in Kamchatka after modernization


    2 MiG-31BM supersonic fighter-interceptors arrived in Kamchatka, having undergone a deep modernization at the Sokol Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft Building Plant.

    Both fighters returned to a separate mixed aviation regiment of Troops and Forces in the North-East of Russia, from where they had previously departed for modernization to the BM modification.

    This upgrade several times improves the combat power of fighters, which increases the ability to perform assigned tasks.

    On the occasion of the arrival of the improved MiG-31BM to Kamchatka, a solemn rally was held at the Yelizovo airfield, during which the regiment commander accepted a report from the pilots on an accident-free flight from the plant.

    In addition to the command and personnel of the regiment, the pilots were met by relatives and friends.

    After a long-range flight, the upgraded MiG-31BMs will undergo maintenance and become part of the squadron, where they will be on combat duty for air defense both in Kamchatka and in the Arctic in the regions of the Far North.

    Their version MiG-31 are not upgraded up to date aircraft... Turkey couldn't operate them without support and they wouldn't last a day in the Ukraine... there would only be a few places they could even take off and those locations would be well within S-400 reach.

    Kazakhstan is not going to continue operating the MiG-31, but neither is any other country, without experience or technical support for this machine.

    There are only two options for the 37 MiG-31s that Kazakhstan has in storage:

    1- Send them to the scrapyard

    2- Sell them to Russia, especially considering that it is buying military material including Su-30SM and they could be used as a means of payment. In addition, the current president seems much more willing to collaborate with Russia than the previous corrupt president managed by Turks and Anglo-Saxons

    It would be very good for Russia to get these planes, including a squadron of MiG-31B with refueling probe.

    It could not only complete the entire current fleet of MiG-31BM, but also open another additional regiment somewhere like Tiksi, which is halfway between Monchegorsk and Yelizovo and is an important place to protect the entire Russian Arctic and the Route of the North that will become less important in the next decades

    No, tokayev said theres no alternative to the rules based international order. He openly obeys western sanctions. He sends military and industrial aid to ukraine. Also kazakhs are fed russophobic propaganda more and more. I saw a video on tg of kazakhs brutally beating a random russian civilian too. A kazakh who murdered a russian was released from prison after just one year and the police beat the victims family members. Kazakhstan is a traitorous state dabbling in grey wolves trash ideology, just like azerbaijan. Yet putin and peskov are barely doing anything.
    Tokayev must be blockaded if he sends ANY dual use goods to ukraine. It shoulkdve been sanctioned for assisting azerbaijan.

    Ukrainian pilots could be trained in 1-2 years on MiG-31s, so ukraine would definitely love to get some. Im sure kazakhstan and azerbaijan have already secretly sent several dozen mig-29s to ukraine btw.

    Moskals are based chuddies giving wholesome assisted suicide and wholesome bottom surgeries to valid ukrainian transwomen.

    You just cant appreciate chuds because of soytroon humor
    Meanwhile I wonder why you denigrate the views of russian war correspondents and active duty soldiers risking their lives on the frontline when they talk about how the MOD's retardation got thousands of their friends and family members killed due to lack of drones, shitty bureaucracy, lack of encrypted radios, etc. and how that should be fixed,  by comparing them to random forum goers on paralay, as well as taking konashenkov's BS with full credulity.

    Does Kazakhstan have r-33 ? Even if they have they aren't in working condition, they would be as bad as S-300 in Kiev.

    Even their mig-31 aren't in flying conditions IMO and neither Turkey nor Ukraine has pilots or support equipement for them.

    Russian R-33S are upgraded and have double the range of the 120km of the R-33. R-37M has even more.
