Technical Specification

Kh-25/25M (identified as AS-10 Kerry NATO) is not rocket - to - earth light by the Soviet / Russian development. The missile is produced in many variations through a series of modules of different navigation system and achieve a range of 10 km.

Designed by Zvezda-Strela, Kh-25 was designed based on laser-guided missiles Kh-23 (AS-7 Kerry). Until now, the new variant of the Kh-25 missiles continue to be widely used and constantly modernized.

Variations Kh-25MP/MPU missiles (AS-12 Kegler) anti-radar, including Kh-25MPU upgrade features improved anti-radar optimized to excel, including X-band radar air defense . Kh-25MP/MPU guided by passive radar homing head and can be added both inertial guidance system to attack the target, even if no radar target signal (off).

While the Kh-25MP has a maximum cruise speed of 850 m / s (about Mach 2.5), maximum range 60 km (the average height) and 25 km (low altitude), the minimum range 3 km and error (CEP) is 5 meters, it is an upgrade to the Kh-25MPU greater weight, up to 320 kg and the maximum range reduced to 40 km.

Kh-25ML is a tactical guided missiles, guided by the semi-active laser homing, specialized attack tactical targets are small. The missile can be launched directly from an air or free dive angle -40 degrees.

The missile is integrated a target device detonated on impact and one bullet, so be sure to destroy all the targets hidden obstacles (concrete, armored vehicles and the like ) and reduced pan angle by hitting a surface barrier.
Kh-25ML release maximum speed is 870 m / s, range 10 km, using two types of warheads and detonate attack is frequently explosive, warhead detonated a small hole on obstacles to cross-flow heat and destroy targets behind, and the type of explosive warheads will penetrate through obstacles then explodes target.

Russia has also developed variations that modify Kh-25MS/MSE missiles and Kh-35 missiles guided by satellites. However, Vietnam did not purchase these missiles lack of such a navigation system.

Russia and Vietnam are also working to create variants with long-range missile complex based anti-ship missiles Kh-35 Uran, striving to create an anti-ship missile generation are placed on ships and on land.
