Hypersonic aerogistic missile MiG-31K capable of destroying targets over a range of 2000 kilometers

Hsmilitarycom: The MiG-31K fighter jet is equipped with hypersonic aeroballistic missiles. It was created on the basis of a modernized MiG-31D3 fighter jet and is capable of hitting targets at a distance of more than 2, 000 kilometers.

In 2018, MiG Corporation completed the creation of a special modification of the MiG-31K. Its peculiarity is that it is equipped with hypersonic aerogistic missiles Kh-47M2 "Dagger" (Izdeliye 9-A-7660) for attacking ground targets. 

The fighter jet received new on-board equipment, increased fuel supply, and special communication equipment.

Due to the size and weight of the rocket, the center of gravity of the fighter jet has shifted - as a result, it was necessary to change the method of combat use and train the pilot to take off and land with weapons hanging under the body of the MiG-31K fighter jet.

With the advent of kinzhal, the MiG-31 was retrained from an interceptor to a heavy aircraft. He raised the rocket to an altitude of up to 25 km and accelerated to a speed of 3 thousand km / h, after which it began an autonomous movement. In fact, the aircraft performs the function of the "first stage" of the rocket. 

The range of application of ammunition allows hitting the target without entering the area of coverage of the air defense.

The MiG-31K fighter jet equipped with the Kinzhal hypersonic missile will be equipped with a control system that will take over the test at launch. It is reported that such a system will bring fighter jets to the required flight mode, speed and altitude. 

The pilot of the MiG-31K will only monitor the instrument and launch at the right time. The emergence of new control systems will speed up the process of training pilots.
