Did the pilots of Soviet airforces during the cold war ever consider ramming as a tactic to intercept intruders ?
is that effective ?
Did high command ever consider that as a viable option

I heard that was a viable tactics in WW II, but those are with low subsonic fighters, doing the same with supersonic fighters seem too dangerous
