    From the article I posted:
    The maximum range of the missile will be somewhat less than when starting with the MiG-31, due to the lower ceiling and speed of the Tu-22M, but it will still be quite sufficient. The interception of such missiles today is a great challenge even for modern air defense and missile defense systems. https://iz.ru/762766/ilia-kramnik/kinzhal-dlia-tushki
    A 2nd stage could also be added to it to increase range.

    Been meaning to suggest this.

    Compared to MiG-31, Tu-22 is a pack mule so adding extra stage on Kinzhal should go off smootly.

    Also, extra stage version opens some interesting possibilities for subsonic aircraft, PAK-DA including.

    Larger booster should do it.
