The scale of Russias participation in China air show is expanding year by year, and more and more weapons are being displayed. One of the most noteworthy Russian exhibits this year is the products of KTRV, Vympel and Raduga, which specialize in aeronautical missile design.
KTRV is one of the largest military product designers and manufacturers in the world. According to Defense News, the company ranked 25th out of the worlds 100 largest producers of military products in 2017. KTRVs affiliates design and produce a variety of high-precision weapons and dual-use products, including aviation tactical missiles, campaign tactical missiles, strategic missiles, including hypersonic missiles; Marine Attack and defense systems, including ship-based and shore-based anti-ship missile systems, as well as underwater weapons and specialized underwater technical equipment; and Ballistic missile systems; aerospace systems and instruments; radio and electronic weapon systems; products in the fields of aviation, aerospace, ocean and information technology based on dual-use technology.
What weapons will KTRV show?
The Triangle Flag Design Bureau will display various types of modern air-to-air missile series (short range RVV-MD, medium range RVV-SD, long range RVV-BD). These missiles are equipped with the most advanced guidance systems, with better sensitivity and anti-jamming ability, and their effective applications are greatly expanded.
RVV-MD short-range missile is used to destroy air targets effectively in short-range air combat, and it has no restrictions on the flight and tactical performance of fighters. The missile control system enables it to attack at large angles and destroy targets with maximum 12g acceleration. The missile can destroy targets within the height range of 20 meters to 20 thousand meters, with a maximum range of 40 kilometers. The use of dual-band infrared guided warhead and digital information processing method improves the probability of missile hitting target under interference conditions.
The range of the RVV-SD medium-range missile is increased to 110 kilometers, which can destroy targets maneuvering at a maximum acceleration of 12 g in the range of 20 meters to 25,000 meters. The RVV-SD no matter after launch can carry out multi-barrel firing, capture the trajectory of the target, and reposition the missile from one target to another in the course of flight, making it a leader in similar products.
The performance of RVV-BD new long-range missile has been greatly improved compared with its predecessor (R-ZZE missile). It has very high aerodynamic performance. Using dual-system solid fuel motor, the maximum take-off weight is 510 kg, the maximum range is 200 km (R-ZZE is 120 km), and it can destroy the maximum acceleration of 8G (R-ZZE is 8 g) in the altitude range of 15 to 25 km. 4G) objectives.
Rainbow Design Bureau will show its forward-looking products, air-to-ground Kh-59MK extended range missile and Kh-58UShKE anti-radar missile, whose combat efficiency is more than twice that of its predecessors.
The Kh-59MK missile is equipped with active radar guided warheads. It is used to attack the surface targets detected by radar from speedboats to cruisers on Su-30MK and Su-35 aircraft. It can be used under the condition of the maximum 6-level wave all the time with a maximum range of 285 km. The missiles navigation system can plan a flight route with up to 4 turning points.
The Kh-59MK missile is equipped with dual-purpose warheads, which can destroy both sea targets and abnormally rigid ground facilities with known coordinates before launching, and may deviate from the intended target by no more than 10 meters.
Kh-58UShKE anti-ship missile is used to attack radar station. It can not only set targets in advance, but also find targets in real time through the target indication system on board the aircraft. It can be hung on the rack of the body, and can also be hung on the external hanging point. The maximum range is 245 km, and the speed of flight can reach 4200 km / h.
In addition to the above models, KTRV Group booth will also show the products designed by the head office, including Kh-35UE and Kh-31AD anti-ship missiles, Kh-31PD anti-radar missiles and Kh-38MLE modular multi-purpose missiles.
The most advanced anti ship missile
Among the groups anti-ship missiles for world market promotion, the most advanced are the Kh-35 family, including the basic model Kh-35E and the improved model Kh-35UE, which will appear at Zhuhai Air Show. Kh-35 family missiles are used to attack surface ships of all levels with drainage of less than 5000 tons. They are characterized by versatility: they can be used for Uran-E missile systems and equipped with surface ships, or for Bal-E mobile shore-based missile systems, or for aircraft including aircraft and helicopters. Because of its low altitude, the missile is stealthy. The longest flying period of the cruise section is no more than 10 meters to 15 meters above the water surface, while the last flight period is only 4 meters. The missile guidance algorithm is also unique: the target indication can come from both the airborne vehicle of the carrier and the external. The warhead is a penetrating high explosive warhead weighing 145 kilograms.
The Kh-35UE anti ship missile is a new missile with a range of 1 times (260 kilometers). The combined guidance system is composed of active and passive radar guided warhead and satellite-inertial guidance system, which greatly improves the anti-jamming ability. When an anti-ship missile is designed to be launched from air or ship, the design, after-sale service and use cost of the missile will be greatly reduced by adopting the above scheme.
Kh-31PD and Kh-31AD high-speed missiles have greatly improved the speed, range and power of warhead. The Kh-31AD anti-ship missile can destroy destroyers and any surface warships below level 5 all-weather and under sea wave conditions, with a maximum range of 160 km. Kh-31PD anti-radar missile is used to destroy medium-range and long-range air defense system radar, as well as land-based and sea-based radar for various purposes; it can be used under any weather conditions with a maximum range of 250 kilometers and a maximum speed of 1100 meters per second.
Kh-38MLE multi-purpose missiles with laser guided warheads are air to ground missiles. There are different types of missiles, which can be equipped with integrated guidance system, and pre-equipped with satellite navigation and various warheads. The missile is used to destroy various ground and surface targets in the coastal zone, with a maximum range of 70 km. Although KTRV will present the latest achievements in the field of air-borne missiles this year, marine systems in its products also play an important role. For example, in the field of marine weapons, the Group designs and sells marine missile systems Uranus-E, fixed and mobile Bar-E and Bastion shore-based missile systems. Unity, submarine-launched missile, torpedo and anti-torpedo weapons, mine and anti-torpedo weapons, sonar warfare tools, anti-missile systems, regional (facility) underwater surveillance and protection systems.
