The Mikoyan MiG-31 (NATO reporting name: Foxhound) supersonic interceptor is one of the fastest combat aircraft in the world, and remains an integral element of Russia’s aerospace defense arsenal.

However, even when you sit in the cockpit of an agile and maneuverable jet, it takes considerable piloting skills to perform an aerial refueling.
