wrong, part of the hidraulic sistem was removed, radar, fire control too, also the afterburner gets more fuel feed, the basic maneuvre was accelerate to max at low level, then jump the zoom climb ,they knew that the f100 had problems of stalling and power at medium- high altitude, the mig25 has better t/w ratio at medium heigh.
about the poland case i dont have information, but about the libian problems, well i had explained that before, its not only about the plane, but also the pilots, and........the carriers in the mediterran, whe know whats the performance difference of the mig29 between iraki pilots and german pilots, the mig 25 have much better supersonic maneuverability than the sr71, there reports of virtual kills made by mig25/31 in the north of russia, the sr71 never flew too close of russian territories
is stupid that blinded defence of the sr71,it never lacks the one that says that the max speed is M4
