Worried about the possible downfall of the Syrian Government the former Soviet Union signed an agreement and began to supply arms and aircraft to the Syrian military in April 1978. The MiG-25PD Foxbat E was being delivered as well as MiG-23MF. MiG-25 Foxbat As were being upgraded to Foxbat E standards and were called MiG-25PDS. Throughout the 1980s Syria had numerous encounters with Israeli fighters. Since the 1990s MiG-25PDs have been concentrated at Tiyaz in central Syria with the 5th Squadron and others transferring their MiG-25PDs to the 1st Squadron.Opening canopy

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25 (NATO reporting name: Foxbat) is a supersonic interceptor and reconnaissance aircraft that was among the fastest military aircraft ever to enter service. It was designed by the Soviet Union's Mikoyan-Gurevich bureau primarily using stainless steel; one of the few combat aircraft to do so. It was the last plane designed by Mikhail Gurevich before his retirement. The MiG-25 prototype was flown in 1964 with the aircraft entering service in 1970. It has an operational top speed of Mach 2.8 (Mach 3.2 is possible but at risk of significant damage to the engines), and features a powerful radar and four air-to-air missiles.
