State of the art jetfighters, unbeatble in dogfights. Russia has the best jets, dont expect to see an f-22 doing that.
The Mig-25 couldn't catch an SR-71 and had no BVR capabilities. The U.S. fighters of those days probably would have beat that steel monster with ease!
The Soviet Union went broke trying to back engineer U.S./Western technology and by the time they got a result it was already obsolete.
That's not "chest beating". That's fact.
