The 712th Guard Fighter Aviation Regiment is based at Kansk AB and equipped with the MiG-31BM ?Foxhound?. With the development of the Kinzhal hypersonic ballistic missile Russia required an aircraft capable of carrying it. The BM variant was approved in 2008 so 50 MiG-31Bs were modified allowing the aircraft to detect aircraft at a distance of 200 miles and track 24 targets up from 10 and capable of engaging 8 targets armed with R77, R33 and R37 missiles.

The MiG-31 (NATO ? Foxhound) is a two-seater long-range supersonic interceptor fighter. The MiG-31 was developed in the 1970s and completed Its maiden flight in September 1975. The MiG-31 set several world records by reaching an altitude of 37,650 meters (123,523 ft) in 1977 as well as setting a time-to-altitude record of 35,000 meters (114,829 ft) in 4 minutes 11.78 seconds. The MiG-25 ?Foxbat? was the basis for the MiG-31 ?Foxhound? but equipped with the latest digital avionics that allows it to operate in all weather conditions and the first Soviet aircraft to have look-down shoot-down capability.
