Default MiG-25 "Foxbat"?

I want to see how many people on here would acually be interested in a MiG-25 (thinking the MiG-31 would be a "little" bit hard to get data on atm..).

And if you would like one in-game, what model would it be?

I tought i would bring my topic here because i think leatherneck did an amazing job on making the MiG-21, and i really hope they keep bringing us some good old russian aircrafts to (try) to fly.
i love having lot's of buttons to press

I agree, it might be hard to find a place for it currently. But i think if the MiG was to be added, the MiG-25 might be better suited for DCS out of the two anyways. since the MiG-25 is single seat while the MiG-31 is a dual seater where (i think) only the co-pilot has the radar screen. when i think about it though, it would be fun going out flying with one of your friends being the navigator less work for you to do..

I have actually directed a Mig-25 question to the LN guys in the past regarding information resource. Cobra847 responded:

"LN have done no research on this topic (yet, possibly)."

The version I personally would like to see is the PD variant, however the BM variant is usually fairly popular too.

You're missing the famous Mig-28

We will never see a Mig-31 module in our lifetime

what makes you say that?

they are making Su-27 and MiG-29 improvements, so I am sure that at some point they will get around to making it.

(Especially since you can buy a ride in a -31 and a guy in the USA bought a working -29)

EDIT: here is the proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xq92ZC5cYoM

Mig-31 is rather advanced with too much classified data to accurately model. Simply buying a ride won't give you the information to model it.

The Su-27SK and Mig-29A, G, S are old variants and have outdated and enough unclassified data to be able to model.

I am sure they can get allot of data on it, just not enough for a DCS level standard.
