Books on the MiG-25 Foxbat
This book takes a detailed, informed, and dispassionate viewpoint of this awesome aeronautical achievement. The MiG-25 follow-on was the similar-looking MiG-31 ‘Foxhound,’ which has not been well documented until this book. The MiG-31 was a new aircraft designed to counter U.S. cruise missiles and was put into production in 1979.
