The MiG-31 emerged in the late 70s as an advanced modification of the MiG-25 Foxbat - a high speed, high altitude interceptor developed to counter the Mach 3 threats from the West such as the Blackbird and the B-70 Valkyrie bomber. The MiG-25 was a crude machine - blocky fuselage hiding two massive engines optimized for high speed flight, fuel tanks sticked wherever possible to increase range and a massive nosecone housing a powerful radar which relied on it’s sheer power to burn through any and all jamming the enemy may throw at you. By the 1980s the airframe was starting to show it’s age, and missile developments meant that the Foxbat was not untouchable anymore. Thus, the Foxhound was born. Apart from it’s twin-seater pilot/RIO configuration similar to the one seen in the F-14 Tomcat it introduced modernized electronics and a new Zaslon long-range radar. Despite being heavier than the Foxbat it still retained it’s precedessor’s Mach 3 capability. Over the years it has estabilished itself as the backbone of Russian air defense forces. Carrying long-range R-33 and R-37 missiles, similar in functionality to the US AIM-54 Phoenixes it makes sure Russian skies stay clear of bombers, and with it’s powerful radars and engines it is sure to deliver it’s payload anywhere within it’s operational radius quicker than any other aircraft. Due to it’s weight it handles like a bus, but you can’t have everything I guess! It’s limited to approx 5-6Gs but will pull 7-8G turns when necessary.

I was not sure where to put this and this seemed to most relevant place. If i'm wrong i do apologize. In 40 days an asteroid is going to impact Kerbin. I want to catch it and put it in a stable orbit to use as a mining station for re-fueling. So I need a ship that can grab it, divert it from an impact then maneuver it into a stable orbit around Kerbin. I am probably going to have to assemble it in orbit, one section at a time with docking ports but aside from that i just don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
Introducing the F-2 Thunderhawk, a Mach 1+ interceptor It's stats are on view here. It can turn at a maximum of 10 gs when at ~250 m/s. It is very easy to modify for a variety of missions, such as attack, bomber, ELINT, AWACS, etc. It's creation was a complete accident. I was going for an F-14 or B-1-ish look, form over function, and when I launched, it flew like a beast. A few modifications later, I came to this.

For more He-series jets, visit my fighter jet and odd trinket repository, you can find the rest of them, or links to their individual pages there, the purpose of this is to prevent my repository from being on the front page 24/7, and to prevent myself from annoying others with it.
