The MiG-25 can supposedly damage its engines by commanding too much thrust and gaining too much speed. Somewhere around mach 3 damage to the engines is likely, I believe.
What about the F-16?
What happens if the pilot, at altitude, attempts to simply go as fast as it will go?
I believe the F-16 has FADEC (Full Authority Digital Electronic Control). The MiG-25 does not. I imagine this would limit the amount of fuel flow by some limit.
However, even if this is true, is it still possible for the pilot to exceed the ordinary limits imposed by the computer?
As a bonus question, it would be interesting to also mention if this does or does not apply to other fighters, in particular the F-14, F-15 and F/A-18.
