There were two Mikoyan Ye-152 aircraft built as part of a number of similar prototype interceptor aircraft that date back to the mid 1950's. The first Ye-152A took to the sky on July 10, 1959. The second Ye-152-1 first flew on April 21, 1961.

It was necessary to build the aircraft large enough to hold the cumbersome avionics, radar and guidance systems of the time. Mikoyan Ye-152 aircraft were powered by the powerful Tumansky R-15 turbojet engine that was under development. Although the engine generated an enormous amount of power, it was unreliable.

On July 7, 1962 the Mikoyan Ye-152-1 no. E166 set a world speed record of 1,665.9 mph.

Flight tests of the Mikoyan Ye-152 led to the development of the MiG-25 that successfully used more reliable, upgraded, twin Tumansky R-15 turbojets.
