Guns were deleted and aircraft relied completely on pair of semi-active guided guided missiles. SM-12PMU, in addition to upgraded RSM-26 main engines received a permanently installed integrated rocket/propellant tank pack RU-01S (U-19). This aircraft during trials (pilots Vladimir Nefedov and Grigory Sedov) climbed to 24,000m. It was an ultimate development of the MiG-19 line.
