Description: The Kh-31, AS-17 Krypton NATO-codename, is an advanced, long range, highly supersonic missile designed to withstand countermeasures effects. The Kh-31 propulsion system consists of a solid-fuel rocket engine which accelerates the missile to Mach 1.8 airspeed. Then this engine is dropped and a jet engine ignites using the missile's within space as a combustion chamber. The missile accelerates to Mach 3+ thanks to the jet engine.

The Kh-31AD is a long range, high speed, anti-ship missile intended to engage a wide range of surface ships such as destroyers, amphibious assault ships and cargo vessels from distances of up to 160 kilometers with the carrier aircraft flying at 1.5 Mach and 15,000 meters of altitude. Typically, a small boat can be taken out by a single missiles while a larger ship like a destroyer will require being hit by tow missiles. The Kh-31AD as a longer range version of the Kh-31A can be released primarily from Su-30MK, Su-34, Su-35, Mig-29K, Mig-29KUB and Mig-35 fighter aircraft. The Russian Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV) announced the existence of this weapon in 2009.
