Ace Combat 5: The Unsung WarEditIn Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, the MiG-31M Foxhound is a high-speed fighter/interceptor aircraft. It is the second aircraft of the MiG-31 family, and is unlocked by filling the MiG-31's Kill Rate Gauge (65,450 pts.)
In terms of performance, the MiG-31M is both identical and different to its normal counterpart. Mobility, defense & stability have been slightly increased. As well, both Air-to-air and Air-to-ground capabilities have been significantly upgraded, giving the -M greater combat abilities. It is equipped with XLAAs for long-range combat. Together with the older MiG-31, the MiG-31M is the fastest aircraft in the game.
At an altitude of 9,450m, the MiG-31M can reach a speed of 3,044km/h. At this speed it can outrun its own missiles, never mind incoming from other craft. In a head on pass going top of the green, the MiG-31 can easily achieve a head on kill, assuming your heading is the exact reverse of the oncoming aircraft. With the XLAA load, a triple splash against the Ofnir and Grabacr formation in the mission The Unsung War is also possible.
- Osea: Standard gray.
