    The last photos are of Kh-38 actually...

    Seeker in my opinion is laser, with multiple apertures for high accuracy and sensitivity.

    Kh-35U unified missile (can be used with any carrier) carried by Su-34 in Syria

    So this missile variant of Kh-35, attacks also land targets?

    Interesting photos George, but as far as I know the Kh-35U is the domestic version of the Kh-35UE which is a long range version of the Kh-35 which is an anti ship missile....

    Yes i have the same view, but provided that ISIS has no navy i assume that this missile maybe targets land except shipping

    It is quite interesting to see Su-34 with Kh-35U missile. Maybe they send some of them to Syria to show them to NATO to not start something stupid in Mediteranian Sea or they test land attack version of Kh-35 like SLAM-ER. Time will tell, when we will know more about missile on Su-34.

    they already have a SLAM and SLAM-ER like system in the Kh-59 and Kh-59M (AS-13 and AS-18) missiles.

    they are older weapons that they might want to replace now but they would still be very effective at their role.

    Kh 59 AS13 kingbolt

    Post  nastle77 on Tue Jun 28, 2016 2:55 pm

    When was the Kh 59 as 13 kingbolt in widespread use with Su 24 ? Wikipedia says in 1982 don't know how accurate that is

    It was probably available in 1982, but such weapons were not purchased in enormous numbers... the Soviet Airforce neglected purchasing expensive guided weapons.

    They had a variety of guided air to ground weapon types but their numbers in service were small and while a wide range of aircraft could carry the AS-13, it was the expensive ground attack aircraft only that carried it... ie Su-24M.

    I would not expect them to have enormous numbers of the system but the air units that would have deployed it would have been Fencer units.

    Russia and India to develop BrahMos light cruise missile for PAK FA 5th-generation jet

    The missile has a range of 290 km and carries a warhead weighing from 200 to 300 kg

    REUTOV, January 27. /TASS/. The BrahMos light cruise missile will be mounted both in submarines’ torpedo launchers and on Russia’s fifth-generation T-50 PAK FA (Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation) fighter jet, CEO and General Designer of the Machine-Building R&D Consortium Alexander Leonov said on Friday.

    "We are working on the missile’s light version. It should fit the size of a torpedo tube and be almost 1.5 times smaller by its weight. It will be possible to mount our airborne missile on a wide range [of aircraft]. Of course, we’ll be developing it, first of all, for the fifth-generation plane but, possibly, it will be mounted on the MiG-35 fighter, although we have not carried out such developments," he said.

    The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile is the product of Russia’s Machine-Building Research and Development Consortium and India’s Defense Research and Development Organization, which set up BrahMos Aerospace joint venture in 1998.

    The missile’s name comes from the names of two rivers: the Indian Brahmaputra of and the Russian Moscow river. The missile has a range of 290 km and carries a warhead weighing from 200 to 300 kg.

    Nice... that will be the lighter version of Brahmos sometimes called Brahmos-M I think that is smaller and lighter and actually faster and able to be carried by smaller lighter tactical aircraft.

    I would assume for larger aircraft they will be able to carry more... the Su-30MKI and Su-34 and of course the Tu-22M3M could carry them in significant numbers...
