WORLDS FASTEST AIRCRAFT in service today Russian Mig 31 Foxhound
An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the
air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet. It counters the force of
gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an
airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines.
The human activity that surrounds aircraft is called aviation. Crewed
aircraft are flown by an onboard pilot, but unmanned aerial vehicles may be
remotely controlled or self-controlled by onboard computers. Aircraft may
be classified by different criteria, such as lift type, propulsion, usage
The Mikoyan MiG-31 (Russian: Микоян МиГ-31; NATO reporting name:
Foxhound) is a supersonic interceptor aircraft developed to replace the
MiG-25 "Foxbat". The MiG-31 was designed by the Mikoyan design bureau based
on the MiG-25.
Like the MiG-25, MiG-31 is a large twin-engine aircraft with side-mounted
air intakes, a shoulder-mounted wing with an aspect ratio of 2.94, and twin
vertical tailfins. Unlike the MiG-25, it has two seats, with the rear
occupied by a dedicated weapon systems officer.
The wings and airframe of the MiG-31 are stronger than those of the MiG-25,
permitting supersonic flight at low altitudes. Its D30-F6 jet engine, rated
at 152 kN thrust, allow a maximum speed of Mach 1.23 at low altitude.
High-altitude speed is temperature-redlined to Mach 2.83—the
thrust-to-drag ratio is sufficient for speeds in excess of Mach 3, but such
speeds pose unacceptable hazards to engine and airframe life in routine
MiG-31 is limited to only 5 g at supersonic speeds. At combat weight,
its wing loading is marginal and its thrust to weight ratio is favorable.
However, it is not designed for close combat or rapid turning.
The MiG-31 was the world's first operational fighter with a passive
electronically scanned array radar (PESA), the Zaslon S-800. Its maximum
range against fighter-sized targets is approximately 200 km (125 mi), and
it can track up to 10 targets and simultaneously attack four of them with
its Vympel R-33 missiles. It is claimed to have limited astern coverage,
possibly due to drag chute housing above and between the engines. The radar
is matched with an infrared search and tracking (IRST) system in a
retractable undernose fairing.
Adopted in 1981
the range detection of air targets: 200 km (for the purpose of with the
radar cross-section of 19 m² on a collision angles with probability 0.5)
target detection distance with radar cross-section of 3 m² in the rear
within 35 km with a probability of 0.5 ()
number of detected targets: 24
the number of targets for attack: 8
the range of automatic tracking: 120 km
detection of thermal goals - 56 km
The basic differences between versions МиГ-31БМ:
The onboard radar complex MiG-31БМ is capable of simultaneously detecting
24 air targets, 8 of which can be simultaneously attacked by missiles
R-33S. Achieved a possibility to intercept targets flying at a speed
corresponding to M=6, improved other characteristics of the
Modernized variants of the aircraft can be equipped with radar missiles
Kh-31S, Kh-25MP or Kh-25МПУ (up to six units), anti-ship UR Kh-31A (up
to six), class missiles air-to-surface Kh-29 and Kh-59 (up to three) or
X-59M (up to two units), up to six corrected air bombs KAB-1500 or eight
KAB-500 with television or laser-guided. Maximum mass of payload is to 9000
The MiG-31M-, MiG-31D-, and MiG-31BS-standard aircraft have an upgraded
Zaslon-M radar, with larger antenna and greater detection range (said to be
400 km (250 mi) against AWACS-size targets) and the ability to attack
multiple targets — air and ground — simultaneously. The Zaslon-M has a
1.4m diameter (larger) antenna, 50% to 100% better performance than Zaslon.
In April 1994 it was used with an R-37 to hit a target at 300 km
distance. It has a search range 400 km versus a 19/20 sq m
RCS target and can track 24 targets at once, engaging six(282 km
The aircraft is a two-seater with the rear seat occupant controlling the
radar. Although cockpit controls are duplicated across cockpits, it is
normal for the aircraft to be flown only from the front seat. The pilot
flies the aircraft by means of a centre stick and left hand throttles. The
rear cockpit has only two small vision ports on the sides of the canopy. It
is argued that the presence of the WSO (Weapon Systems Operator) in the
rear cockpit improves aircraft effectiveness since the WSO is entirely
dedicated to radar operations and weapons deployment. This decreases the
workload of the pilot and increases efficiency. Both cockpits are fitted
with zero/zero ejection seats which allow the crew to eject at any altitude
It has been claimed by Russian Federation Defence Ministry chief Colonel
MIKOYAN MIG 29M OVT Vectored Thrust Demo - Farnborough (airshowvision)
Quite simply one of the most legendary fast jet demos of recent years,
showing the possibilities available to a pilot when he has 360 degrees of
Vectored Thrust to play with.
This aircraft is one of the Mig29M prototypes, retro fitted with 360 degree
thrust vectoring nozzles, enabling it to turn within its' own axis and
produce the amazing manouvers you see here, including the backflip, the
super cobra, and the flat spin. All under total control.
Also, during the final part of the display, we see the pilot stop playing
around and open the jet up and really let rip with a very high speed
rolling loop, for me possibly the highlight of the display.
This aircraft is still in this colour scheme, but sadly, like most Russian
fighters rarely ventures outside Russia, but it came over in 2006 to do
Farnborough and the Paris air show. Here is its' moment of magic . . .

RARE VIDEO Russian Air Force Su-24 on bombing mission.
Russian air force bomber aircraft The Sukhoi Su-24 (NATO reporting name:
Fencer) is a supersonic, all-weather attack aircraft developed in the
Soviet Union. This variable-sweep wing, twin-engined side-by-side
two-seater carried the USSR's first integrated digital navigation/attack
system. It remains in service with former Soviet air forces and various
air forces to which it was exported.
The Su-24 has a shoulder-mounted variable geometry wing outboard of a
relatively small fixed wing glove, swept at 69°. The wing has four sweep
settings: 16° for take-off and landing, 35° and 45° for cruise at
different altitudes, and 69° for minimum aspect ratio and wing area in
low-level dashes. The variable geometry wing provides excellent STOL
performance, allowing a landing speed of 230 km/h (143 mph), even lower
than the Sukhoi Su-17 despite substantially greater take-off weight. Its
high wing loading provides a stable low-level ride and minimal gust
The Su-24 has two Saturn/Lyulka AL-21F-3A afterburning turbojet engines with 109.8 kN (24,700 lbf) thrust
each, fed with air from two rectangular side mounted intakes with splitter
In early Su-24 ("Fencer A" according to NATO) aircraft these intakes had
variable ramps, allowing a maximum speed of 2,320 km/h (1,440 mph), Mach
2.18, at altitude and a ceiling of some 17,500 m (57,400 ft). Because the
Su-24 is used almost exclusively for low-level missions, the actuators for
the variable intakes were deleted to reduce weight and maintenance. This
has no effect on low-level performance, but absolute maximum speed and
altitude are cut to Mach 1.35 and 11,000 m (36,100 ft). The earliest
Su-24 had a box-like rear fuselage, which was shortly changed in production
to a rear Exhaust shroud more closely
shaped around the engines in order to reduce drag. The revised aircraft
also gained three side-by-side antenna fairings in the nose, a repositioned
braking chute, and a new ram-air inlet at the base of the tail fin. The
revised aircraft were dubbed "Fencer-B" by NATO, but did not merit a new
The Su-24's fixed armament is a single fast-firing GSh-6-23 cannon with 500
rounds of ammunition, mounted in the fuselage underside. The gun is covered
with an eyelid shutter when not in use. The warload includes various
nuclear weapons. Two or four R-60 (NATO AA-8 'Aphid') infrared missiles are
usually carried for self-defense by the Su-24M/24MK.
Initial Su-24s had basic electronic countermeasures (ECM) equipment, with
many Su-24s limited to the old Sirena radar-warning receiver with no
integral jamming system. Later-production Su-24s had more comprehensive
radar warning, missile-launch warning, and active ECM equipment, with
triangular antennas on the sides of the intakes and the tip of the vertical
fin. This earned the NATO designation "Fencer-C", although again it did not
have a separate Soviet designation. Some "Fencer-C" and later Su-24M
("Fencer-D" by NATO) have large wing fence/pylons on the wing glove portion
with integral chaff/flare dispensers; others have such launchers scabbed
onto either side of the tail fin.
Syrian civil war
During the escalation of the Syrian Civil War, starting in November 2012,
around four months after the first air raids from different fixed wing
aircraft started, and after 18 months since the beginning, the first Su-24
medium bombers were filmed dropping their heavy payload on the rebels.
The first and to date only Su-24 loss, an upgraded MK2 version, was downed
by an Igla sufrace-to-air missile fired by the insurgency already on 28
November near the town Darat Izza in the Aleppo Governorate. One of the
pilots, Col. Ziad Daud Ali, was injured and was filmed being taken to a
rebel field hospital.
Furthermore, Syrian Fencers have reportedly been involved in
near-encounters with NATO warplanes. The first of such incidents occurred
in early September 2013, when Syrian Fencers of the 819th Squadron
(launched from Tiyas airbase) flew low over the Mediterranean and
approached the 14-mile air exclusion zone surrounding the British airbase
in Akrotiri, Cyprus. The jets turned back before reaching the area due to
two RAF Eurofighter Typhoons being scrambled to intercept them. Turkey also
sent two F-16s. The Fencers were possibly testing the air defenses of the
base (and their reaction time) in preparation for a possible military
strike by the U.S, the United Kingdom and France in the aftermath of the
chemical weapons attack in Ghouta, Damascus allegedly committed by the
Surviving Su-24M models have gone through a life-extension and updating
program, with GLONASS, upgraded cockpit with multi-function displays
(MFDs), HUD, digital moving-map generator, Shchel helmet-mounted sights,
and provision for the latest guided weapons, including R-73 (AA-11
'Archer') air-to-air missiles.
Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

NEW CHALLENGER to Leopard 2 and Abrams Tanks Russian T 90MS Main Battle Tank
Great tank for Russian military be interesting to see it against the
leopard 2 and Abrams tanks The T-90 is a Russian third-generation main
battle tank that is essentially a modernisation of the T-72B, incorporating
many features of the T-80U (it was originally to be called the T-72BU,
later renamed to T-90). It is currently the most modern tank in service
with the Russian Ground Forces and Naval Infantry. Although a development
of the T-72, the T-90 uses a 125mm 2A46 smoothbore tank gun, 1G46 gunner
sights, a new engine, and thermal sights. Standard protective measures
include a blend of steel, composite armour, smoke mortars, Kontakt-5
explosive-reactive armor, laser warning receivers, Nakidka camouflage and
the Shtora infrared ATGM jamming system. The EMT-7 electromagnetic pulse
(EMP) creator has been used in testing but not fitted to T-90s in active
service. It is designed and built by Uralvagonzavod, in Nizhny Tagil,
Russia. Since 2011, the Russian armed forces have ceased ordering the T-90,
and are instead waiting for the development of the Universal Combat
Platform T-99 that is expected to enter service in 2020.

The new 2011 made T-90MS "Tagil" the worlds best tank currently hands down.
This tank was named T-90MS on purpose to mislead NATO to believe that its
"just an upgraded T-90". While T-90 was upgraded already in 1999 the T-90A
"Vladimir" that is current Russian MBT and T-90MS "Tagil" hopefully will be
next to enter service soon. This has completely new turret and it is so
radically modified and upgraded that it is completely new tank compared to
the normal modernized T-90A it has very little in common anymore with the
normal T-90 that was made few examples in 1991 or 1993. Anyway, during
second Chechen campaign T-90A got hit up to 7 times with different RPGs,
modern and old ones and it remained in action. No T-90A tank has ever been
destroyed and that is current Russian MBT, it has the longest range of all
tanks due to its capability to launch laser guided missiles trough its
125mm smoothbore gun up to 5-6km. Just some few of the new features: T-90MS
is production version featuring new explosive reactive armor (ERA) Relikt,
new 1,250 PS (920 kW) engine, new improved turret and composite armor, new
gun, new thermal imaging Catherine-FC from Thales, an enhanced
environmental control system for providing cooled air to the fighting
compartment, integrated tactical system, satellite navigation and others.
DSHK with IR camera, and PNM Sosna-U gunner view, 7.62mm turret UDP T05BV-1
RWS, GLONASS+inertial navigation, explosive reactive armor (ERA) Relikt and
ammunition is now mounted in rear of the turret for improved crew safety
and using an improved faster
autoloader, the list could go on...etc etc etc. So really its not a "T-90"
anymore even...its a whole new different 3.5 generation tank.
The T-90's main armament is the 2A46M 125 mm smoothbore tank gun. This is a
highly modified version of the Sprut anti-tank gun, and is the same gun
used as the main armament on the T-80-series tanks. It can be replaced
without dismantling the inner turret and is capable of firing
armour-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot (APFSDS), high-explosive
anti-tank (HEAT-FS), and high explosive fragmentation (HE-FRAG) ammunition,
as well as 9M119M Refleks anti-tank guided missiles. The Refleks missile
has semi-automatic laser beam-riding guidance and a tandem hollow-charge
HEAT warhead. It has an effective range of 100 m to 6 km, and takes 17.5
seconds to reach maximum range. Refleks can penetrate about 950 millimetres
(37 in) of steel armour and can also engage low-flying air targets such as
The NSV 12.7mm (12.7x108) remotely controlled anti-aircraft Heavy machine
gun can be operated from within the tank by the commander and has a range
of 2 km and a cyclic rate of fire of 700--800 rounds per minute with 300
rounds available (the NSV was replaced by the Kord heavy machine gun in the
late 1990s). The PKMT 7.62mm (7.62x54mm R) coaxial machine gun weighs about
10.5 kg while the ammunition box carries 250 rounds (7000 rounds carried)
and weighs an additional 9.5 kg.
Like other modern Russian tanks the 2A46M in the T-90 is fed by an
automatic loader which removes the need for a manual loader in the tank and
reduces the crew to 3 (commander, gunner, and driver). The autoloader can
