"9-01" was first prototype of 9-12, MiG-29A Fulcrum A
never heard of 'unmanned reusable interceptor" 901 neither 9.01
you can seriously imagine such a UCAV technology level in early 90s?

I will modify your question a bit: Why we are so prospective when we find some "fantastic" new information? Because there is a loooot of fakes, misinterpretations and personal imagination, so being a skeptic and rational/evidence based is a good thing to do.

So, now when we have a source... how thrustworthy it is? What I find interesting/suspicious are also other listed projects such as:

izdeliye 41 -  The project is a light tactical fighter, 1981 г 1981 . . Нормальной аэродинамической схемы, боковые ВЗ, ТРДДФ тягой 10 т (на 2-м этапе), БРЛС Комар Normal aerodynamic configuration, the lateral VZ, turbofan thrust of 10 tons (at the 2 nd stage), radar is "Mosquito"

izdeliye 4.12 - The project is a light tactical fighter 5 th generation (Project-21 - "Fighter of the 21 st Century) 1998 г 1998 . . С РЛС с АФАР Жук-МАЭ, ТРДДФ тягой 11,5-12 т With radar AFAR "Zhuk-MAE", turbofans Thrust 11,5-12 m

izdeliye 1.27 - Draft medium tactical fighter 5 th generation, 1998 г 1998 .

Regarding the 901, if the 1990 is really the year, it can be something similar to Tupolev Tu-300. It means at best semi-autonomous RPV, able to deliver weapons in a medium distances. I am going to write to the author.

Source for all (except possibly the 901) appears to be Paralay. They are, to the best of my knowledge, correct.

Well, I'm myself suspicious of an "901" too, however lets not forget that Hawker Siddeley designed an unmanned interceptor in the early 1970s (see British Secret Projects vol.3 page 75), and continued work in the late 1980s as UFA (Unmanned Fighter Aircraft) (Projects P.1224 and P.1243).
Hmm, time for a new thread perhaps?

well, I became interested

*original* and only mention of Article 901 (or 9.01?) in media is 2005 article on UAVs in Kommersant Business Guide, a supplement to #1 business newspaper here, Kommersant. Seems that designation leaked from interview with chief of MiG Engineering Center, Barkovsky.

"were intended to counter LO targets with Gs out of limits of human pilot"

No answer so far. So if someone - preferably Russian native speaker - wants to try...

New topic split from older thread. Please use this for post-war projects that are insufficiently documented for now to have their own topic.
