Spill tipped me that Russia has delivered 6 MiG-31 Foxhound interceptors to Syria. The Foxhound is a capable long range high altitude air defense platform. But it’s a lousy dogfighter. It was intended to counter US B-52s and B-1s. How it fits into Syria’s air defense plans is a bit of a mystery to me.
Speaking of the Foxhound, a Russian photographer decided it would be a good idea to slap half a dozen or so G0Pro cameras on one, and take it for a spin.
That’s a relatively low altitude, low speed flight. One wonders just how high you could get a GoPro before the extremely cold outside air temperature killed the batteries or otherwise shut down the camera.
