    ‘Most advanced & highly reliable’: Putin commends designers of Kh-101 strategic cruise missile


    https://www.rt.com/news/395530-strategic-cruise-missile-putin/


    President Vladimir Putin has praised the reliability of Russian weaponry, while applauding the developers of the Kh-101 strategic air-to-surface cruise missile which has proven its effectiveness against terrorists in Syria.
    Trends

    “I would like to thank both the military personnel and the designers and developers of one of our latest missile systems, Kh-101,” Putin said
    at a Meeting of the Commission for Military Technical Cooperation with Foreign State

    “This missile system has proved highly reliable. It is indeed the most advanced weapon with high precision and capacity, and a range of 4,500 km, which is quite good,” he added, urging defense companies to step up production of modern weapons.

    The Kh-101 missile, created by Raduga (Rainbow) Design Bureau, was first battle-tested in Syria in 2015, but the Russian military once again demonstrated its effectiveness on Wednesday, when Tu-95MS strategic bombers fired the missiles on Islamic State targets in Hama and Homs provinces.

    Noting the potency of the new missiles with stealth radar-evading features, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday’s precision strikes were carried out “from a distance of about 1,000 kilometers.”

    Very interesting piece by Alexei Ramm for Izvestia discussing a new ALCM known as "Izdeliye 715" that is being developed for the #Tu22M3 by MKB Raduga. Missile likely to begin trials soon and will probably be carried internally on a rotary launcher.

    Quite interesting, thanks....sounds like the range will be "several" thousand km....apparently more than double the range of the Kh-22/32 but less than the Kh-101....that's a considerable increase of the firepower of the Tu-22M3

    According to the military historian Dmitry Boltenkov, thanks to the new cruise missiles Tu-22M3 will turn into unique multi-purpose shock systems.

    - We can assume the following scenario. The Tu-22M3 regiment takes off for the mission. Under the wings of each bomber, two X-32 missiles, and in the fuselages - "revolvers" with "products 715" - First, launching cruise missiles. They knock out airbases, positions, radars and air defense command posts. Further, bombers approach targets and strike hard with more powerful X-32s. Tu-22M3 with 9-a-5015 will be useful in the war against terrorists. They will be able to strike high-precision strikes, like the "older brothers" Tu-95MS and Tu-160.

    At present, there are about 80 long-range bombers Tu-22M3 in the Russian Air Force

    Possible look of Izdeliye 715 (Kh-SD?) From patent submission document by Aleksey Yurkonenko [Tactical Missiles Corporation JSC (AO KTRV)]. By some accounts Izdeliye 715 should be similar to AGM-158 JASSM.

    New Russian cruise missiles X-50 and GZUR

    According to Pyotr Butovsky in the article "Russian bombers to be armed with new Kh-50 theater-cruise missile" in the magazine "Jane's Missiles & Rockets", Russian sources in early December 2017 disclosed the designation X-50 for the new Russian operational- tactical (sub-strategic) cruise missile. Sources said that the deployment of X-50 missile production is planned within the framework of the new Russian State Armament Program for 2018-2027 (GPV-2027).



    Developed by JSC "State Engineering Design Bureau" Rainbow "them. A. Ya. Bereznyak "in Dubna as part of the X-SD (" medium-range ") program, the X-50 missile is presumably a subsonic cruise missile using the X-101 strategic cruise missile guidance system, but with a smaller undetectable glider , similar to the American rocket AGM-158 JASSM. R & D on X-SD began in the early 1990s, but was subsequently suspended for several years.

    The X-50 missile, designed to accommodate Tu-22M3 bombers and Tu-95MS and Tu-160 strategic bombers, is 6 m long in length - about 1.5 m less than the X-101 missile - and has a mass of about 1600 kg. It is expected that the rocket equipped with a turbofan engine developed by JSC Omsk Engine-Building Design Bureau (OMKB) "Product 37-04" (or TRDD-50B) reaches a range of more than 1500 km, having a cruising speed of 700 km / h and a maximum speed of 950 km / h.

    The fuselage of the rocket has an oblate cross-section and faceted sides; these forms combine the requirements for a reduction in radar visibility and for the most effective use of the volume of the weapons compartment of a heavy bomber when deployed on a six-position revolving revolving launcher. The guidance system includes a combination of an inertial navigation system with correction for GPS / GLONASS in the march area and an electronic optical digital correlation system "Otblesk" (analogous to DSMAC) for the final section. In addition to the low visibility of the glider, to penetrate into areas covered by enemy air defense, the X-50 missile uses a low-altitude flight profile and is equipped with a self-defense system, including a small station of active electronic interference and towed traps. The military part of the missile can be of two types: the penetrating BS-715P for the defeat of protected targets, or the cluster BS-715K for the destruction of aerodromes and other area targets.

    The X-50 missile is planned as an armament for modernized Russian long-range bombers. The Tu-22M3M bomber will house six X-50 missiles on the internal turret launcher and two rockets on the external suspension, while the Tu-95MSM strategic bomber can carry up to 14 missiles, including six on the internal suspension. Tu-160M ​​/ M2 aircraft will be capable of carrying up to 12 missiles on two internal turret launchers.

    Some characteristics of the X-50 missile can be estimated on the basis of the design of the export version of the tactical missile X-59MK2, presented at the MAKS-2015 air show in Moscow, which should have the same guidance system and the same engine, Article 37-04. The X-59MK2 type DSMAC missile, designated in the export version as the OE-M, provides a declared accuracy of 3-5 m guidance. The X-59MK2 is the developed analogue of the MBDA Storm Shadow missile and is designed to defeat small protected targets with known coordinates . The status of the X-59MK2 missile is unclear. It is possible that this preliminary proposal, advertised to search for a potential foreign investor, and the Russian version of this missile, may not exist. At a weight of 770 kg, the X-59MK2 tactical missile is smaller than the X-50, having a length of 4.2 m and a square fuselage cross section of 40 × 40 cm, adapted for placement in the internal fighter armament compartment, for example, the Su-57.

    Another Russian development designed to operate in conditions of strong enemy air defense is a new tactical operational hypersonic missile developed jointly by the head enterprise of the Corporation Tactical Missile Arms Corporation in Korolev and the State MRC "Raduga" in Dubna as part of the program "Hypersonic guided missile "(GZUR). The military designation of this missile is still undiscovered.

    According to reports, GZUR is a missile with a speed of M = 6 and with a range of 1500 km in flight by altitude profile. The length of the rocket is 6 m, and the weight is about 1500 kg. As you can understand, the missile has mainly anti-ship designation. The missile will be equipped with a ramjet engine Product 70 developed by PJSC TMKB Soyuz in Turaevo and equipped with a combined active-passive radar homing head known as Gran-75, which is being developed by JSC Ural Design Bureau "Detail" in Kamensk-Uralsky; broadband passive channel ("Gran-75PK") for this homing head is created by JSC "Central Design Bureau of Automation" (TsKBA) in Omsk. The "Granyu-75" refers to the modification of the "Gran-K" self-guidance head used in the tactical anti-ship missile Kh-35U.

    According to sources in the Russian industry, by 2020 it is assumed that the rocket of GZUR will be mass-produced at a rate of "up to 50 items per year", which suggests that it is currently being tested.

    So now we know the name of the Izd 715 missile that was mentioned in Tu-22M thread recently

    According to P. Butowski the X-50 has a jammer and towed decoys


    Apart from the low-observable airframe, to penetrate the enemy air defence the Kh-50 missile uses low-altitude flight profile and is equipped with self-protection devices, including a small active electronic jammer and towed decoys.

    Also note what Putin stated. The nuclear engine for this thing can fit on existing weapons like Kh-101 and Tomahawk (guessing on how it universally works). Awesome stuff.

    So the missile was photo/vision tracked from a sukhoi-30 it seems..? I mean the fighter was tracking the missile in flight (with eye contact).

    Hmmm.. they used to do a lot with kh-101 and may be with tomahawk.

    But this must be more advanced in carrying iinfrared jammers(DIRCM), infrared decoys , radar jammers and also a heavy armour/stealth on the missile.

    U.S missile defense will be totally fooled by such low level flight. Strange mix of hypersonic and subsonic weapons .. to completely out flank the U.S missile
    defense

    The engine is under the missile so it is hidden by the boddy to all airborne radars specially the front of the engine. It changes nothing to its stealth.

    Moreover it flies very low so ground based radar will see it only when it is close to them. Even with a stralth engine it would be detected so better go for the cheaper engine they already have which is also much more efficient because they don't use an S shape entry to send the air in the missile as it is done on kh-35 or other western missiles.

    Are you sure you aren't confusing them with Kh-55? Those do have podded engine but they were never stealth missiles to begin with.

    No it is not.

    Kh-555 is a modification of the Kh-55, Kh-101 and Kh-102 are completely new missiles with completely new engines... they are almost double the weight of the Kh-55s for a start.

    Contrary to popular belief most cruise missiles actually fly at medium altitude for the first part of a long flight and then drop down to lower altitudes to penetrate enemy air defences.

    This extends flight range by quite a bit.

    Since 2012, a real breakthrough has been made in equipping the Russian Armed Forces with precision weapons. Thus, the number of carriers of land, sea and air-based increased more than 12 times, and high-precision cruise missiles - more than 30 times.
