Never had even knew a MiG-41 existed or even was in development. Able to even operate in outer space? This from an air-breathing [jet] vehicle?
Again thanks to Russian Times.
"New Russian MiG interceptor will be able to operate in space – developer’s CEO"
"The cutting-edge interceptor aircraft, which has been under development for several years, will be able to reach space and even potentially operate without a pilot"
REPLACEMENT FOR THE MiG-31 AT HAND? A TOTALLY NEW WARPLANE THE MISSION OF WHICH IS AIR DEFENSE OF THE RUSSIAN HOMELAND!
. . . .
"The plane, however, will not be just a modernization of MiG-31, it will be an entirely new machine, having 'the ability to operate in space, new weapons, new speeds, new operational range,'" - - MiG Corporation CEO Ilya Tarasenko.
“'It will be an entirely new plane, where entirely new technologies to operate in the Arctic zone will be utilized. This plane will safeguard the whole border of our homeland. Later, the project will become unmanned,'” - - Tarasenko.
SOMEONE TELL ME IF I AM WRONG BUT THE MiG-41 BEARS A REMARKABLE RESEMBLANCE TO THE AMERICAN F-35!
