There must be an X-15 add-on somewhere in this forum. The X-15 was intended to be a hypersonic aeroplane, but it became a spaceplane as various pilots flew it above 80 km.

The Mig-31 is not hypersonic by itself. Its performance is quite equivalent to the F-15 (and of course the Mig-25) : those are Mach 2.85 fast interceptors, mainly designed to neutralize enemy strategic bombers as fast as possible, certainly not at their best in dogfights.

I love those planes as they are pretty much the best you can get from "classic" air-breathing turbofan engines.

Even with the DG, you can easily fly hypersonic already. I can't tell that it is something special - the DG is even way more maneuverable than many existing MaRVs

let's have a deal, I'm ok to try to model the plane, those blueprints are good. Can you try to model the cockpit ? I'm going to be very lost with all those Russian analog gauges (but they also can look real real cool). I'll manage the coding.
it's more useful for the community to have the Proton and the Long March 5 you're building
