Russia's Kh-69 Missile: Hefty But Slick

A new missile is about to enter into service with the Russian Armed Forces. The advanced Kh-69 air-to-surface cruise missile has technical features that place it between short-range munitions and strategic cruise missiles in terms of combat performance.
The upgraded Kh-69 is equipped with a control system that has many technical characteristics similar to strategic cruise missiles.
The enhanced iteration is designed for high-precision non-nuclear strikes on various ground-based fixed targets, and is virtually invisible to enemy radar.
Unlike its multiple predecessors, the new missile is more precise, compact, and consists of improved composite materials.
