MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev has visited a missile factory in the Moscow region and familiarized himself with the latest aviation missile technology.
Judging by the photo on his Telegram channel, Medvedev is especially interested in the unusual square-section missile. BulgarianMilitary.com has found out what the missile consists of and why exactly it might interest Vladimir Putin’s deputy on the Security Council.
BulgarianMilitary.com quotes specialists as saying that Dmitry Medvedev and KTRV chief Boris Obnosov made a pit stop near the only remaining Kh-69 air-to-surface missile. Last year, she was first contacted, and her position was still top secret.
The business displayed a model rocket at the Army-2022 conference. The “live” missile is now pointed squarely at the military operation’s intended target.
What is special about this missile?
To begin, it has a peculiar square cross-section. The designers claim that this shape makes it simple to install in the fuselage of the Russian Su-57 fifth-generation stealth aircraft. Next-Generation Low-Profile High-Precision Multifunctional Missile is the full name of the weapon.
The shape of the missile’s fuselage and its special coating makes it stealthy from enemy air defense radars. The Russians claim that a potential adversary’s air defenses cannot shoot down such a missile.
The function of the final rocket is intriguing. It was designed specifically to damage transportation infrastructure facilities, such as train stations and interchanges. As part of Russia’s military strategy in Ukraine, analysts in Moscow deem this a crucial responsibility.
Especially in light of the West’s announced massive deployments of tanks and other weapons to Ukraine. It is reasonable to anticipate that the Kh-69 will serve Russia well.
It can also attack ammunition, fuel, and lubricant stores; command posts and communications centers; oil refineries and petrochemical plants; large company workshops; and power plant engine rooms. These goals also fit into the concept of Russian actions in Ukraine.
There is only one mechanism for guiding missiles, and it does both. It has GPS, GLONASS, and a frameless inertial navigation system. At this time, it is unknown precisely when the series production of the rocket will begin.
