Description: The Kh-102 is an advanced cruise missile under development to eventually replace the nuclear-capable Kh-55 missile onboard the Soviet/Russian strategic bombers such as Tu-160 and Tu-95. The Kh-102 has a nuclear warhead, stealth features, high subsonic speed and low altitude flight profile. The Kh-102 has also been referred to as the Russian counterpart to the United States Air Force AGM-129 air launched cruise missile.

The Kh-102 has a highly accurate navigation system with a terminal TV-based seeker for precision-attack missions. The Kh-102 development has been strongly influenced by the successes of US military campaigns in the late 1990s and the emerging role of standoff weapons in modern conflicts. Up to eight (Tu-95) or up to 12 (Tu-160) of these missiles can be carried by a single Russian heavyweight bomber.

The Kh-101 and Kh-102 air launched cruise missile are supposed to be members of the same family of missiles sharing components and overall performance. The main difference between them is their warhead. The Kh-101 is near ready for deployment in 2006 and the Kh-102 would be available for long-range Russian aviation branch in a later date. Both missiles could have entered service with the Russian Air Force in early 2012 or later in 2013/2014.
