Kh-31 Supersonic Air-to-Surface Missile Family

Companies & Organizations:

The Kh-31 missile features a standard configuration with X-shaped control surfaces. The Kh-31A missile is designed to engage surface ships of up to destroyer class. The missile is equipped with an active radar seeker and an HE shaped-charge warhead. The seeker has two engagement modes: in the combined mode the seeker locks onto target while the missile is still at the hardpoint, and in the internal guidance mode the seeker locks onto the target after missile launch.

 

The engagement mode is selected by the crew. The Kh-31A is in the inventory of the Su-30MK, Su-32, Su-35, MiG-29M, MiG-27M, MiG-29SMT, and MiG-29K aircraft. The Kh-31P missile is designed to engage emitting radars of SAM systems and acquisition radars (depending on the seeker type). The Kh-31P missile arms the Su-30MK, Su-32, Su-35, MiG-29SMT, and MiG-29K aircraft.

 

On the basis of the Kh-31 missile the MA-31 air target has been developed.
