The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25 NATO reporting name: Foxbat, is a supersonic interceptor and reconnaissance aircraft that was among the fastest military aircraft to enter service. It was designed by the Soviet Union's Mikoyan-Gurevich bureau and is one of the few combat aircraft built primarily using stainless steel. It was the last plane designed by Mikhail Gurevich before his retirement. Primary Role: Interceptor And Reconnaissance Aircraft.
In 1989 the 49th Corps of Air Defence (Kyiv) was formed by combining the 9th, 11th and 19th AD divisions. The 49th was made up of numerous units with one unit being the 933rd Fighter Aviation Regiment AD (Dnipropetrovsk-Kaydaki Air Base). By the end of 1991 there were around 550 MiG-25PD and MiG-25PDS in what was former USSR territory. With this break-up of the Soviet Union Ukraine inherited 79 MiG-25s with 40 MiG-25PDS/PU going to the 933rd but this unit only lasted until 1996 when it was disbanded.
