The Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-152A was a twin-engined interceptor built as an twin-engined version of the Ma 2.5+ class Ye-150, sharing its general layout with MiG-21, somewhat similar to the process that led from the F/A-18 A/C Hornet series to the F/A-18E Super Hornet. Only one aircraft was built. The Ye-152 design however was built in two examples; the Ye-152/1 and Ye-152/2. These had only one engine but it was the Tumansky R-15 engine that would end up in the MiG 25. Ye-152/2 was rebuilt as Ye-152P as a step on the way to the improved Ye-152M version, but when it was finished the MiG 25 was already in development.
