Description: Kh-15 is a supersonic, short-range attack missile carrying a 200-kiloton nuclear or 250 kg conventional warhead. It was designed to provide Soviet medium- and long-range bombers with an outstanding strike capability against targets protected by sophisticated air defense systems. This can be done thanks to its impressive maximum speed of Mach 5. Kh-15 guidance system is based on the inertial navigation and may be backed up with a radar homing head for anti-ship applications.

Kh-15P designation refers to the anti-radiation version of Kh-15 which is a superb weapon for enemy air defenses suppression. Kh-15A and/or Kh-15S refer to an anti-ship variant. The Russian/Soviet Air Force deployed the Kh-15 on its Tu-160, Tu-22M and Tu-95 bombers. NATO calls this weapon the AS-16 Kickback. It is the Soviet counterpart to US AGM-69 SRAM.
