Libya is believed to have had 60 MiG-25s. In 1973 Libya declared the Gulf of Sidra as being part of their territory but this claim was never accepted by international law. When President Ronald Reagan came to power he tested the Libyan Air Force by sending a carrier force into the area. A couple of Libyan Su-22s were intercepted approaching the U.S. force and when they didn't leave they were shot down by F-14s. Later a force of Libyan aircraft including MiG-25P approached but turned away rather than engage.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25PD Foxbat-E

Designed as a high-speed, high-altitude interceptor to counter the threat posed by the US XB-70 Valkyrie bomber, the MiG-25 was first flown on September 9th, 1964. The airframe was designed around a pair of massive Tumansky R-15(B) turbojet engines, capable of propelling it to a top speed of around Mach 3. The Foxbat is one of the fastest production aircraft to enter service. In addition to the interceptor variants, numerous reconnaisance variants were also produced. The MiG-25 has seen service with several air forces besides Russia including those of Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Syria.
