You're quite right. They need their fire cones widened, the MiG-31M needs R-77s on every other hardpoint and they both need to have their availability per card doubled. Turning the base MiG-31 into an imaginary hypothetical strike bomber variant is also a possibility.
Hooonestly, I'd rather them just remove the MiG-31s flat out and turn the F-14 into the Cat B ASF for the US Marine deck. AIM-9Ms and -7Ms.
This would be the proper way to go about it.
But, in the hypothetical scenario MiG-31M stays.. 4x R-37, 2x R-40TD-1 as a loadout is an incredibly enticing thought.
