Russia’s MiG-25 is fastest high-speed military fighter in the world, japanese analyst said
TOKYO, (BM) – Japanese military analyst Mori Kentaro spoke about the MiG-25 fighter, which is “the fastest in the world”, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting a statement of the expert shared on Yahoo News Japan.
MiG-25 is still the fastest high-speed military fighter in the world. “In 1962, he set a world record, reaching an average hourly speed of 2981.5 km on a 500-kilometer route with a radius of 80 kilometers,” writes RIA Novosti. Nobody has managed to break this record so far.
Kentaro added that special steel alloys were used to create the fighter. They were more resistant to high temperatures, which was important with a quick set of speed. Another climb of the MiG-25 was its rate of climb: the aircraft reaches an altitude of 35,000 meters at maximum thrust in 4 minutes 11 seconds. According to the expert, the Soviet fighter has been considered the “king of speed” for 50 years.
In 2019, it became known about the tests of a new generation Su-57 fighter in Syria. The Ministry of Defense said that by mid-2020 such aircraft would go into service with the Russian Aerospace Forces. Military experts do not rule out that fighters can get new weapons, including hypersonic missiles, the agency recalls.
