Avro Arrow - MiG 25

But were they that similar? Looking at the aircraft how likely is this claim?

"The Royal Canadian Mounted Police feared that a Soviet "mole" had infiltrated Avro, later confirmed to some degree in the Mitrokhin archives."!
To Me they are much lookalikes!

A number of 'Arrow' sites point to considerable US political/commercial pressure being used to erase the Avro Arrow.
Wrt MiG 25 - there are similarities: large, twin jet, shoulder mounted delta wing, but also differences: single fin vs twin fin, aluminium construction vs nickel steel. More likely convergence due to physical constraints.

What? The Canadian police hunts moles? In the mountains? I thought there are only marmots!
Just seen a programme that claimed the MiG 25 was largely based on the Avro Arrow.
Isn't it the biggest laud you can get when the enemy copies you?
