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-31PD is a long range, high speed, anti-radiation missile intended for engaging radar stations of air defense systems from distances of up to 250 kilometers with the carrier aircraft flying at 1.5 Mach and 15,000 meters of altitude. The guidance system combines inertial navigation system and broad band passive radar seeker. It is fitted with a 110 kg multiple charge, multi-purpose warhead. The Kh-31PD as a longer range version of the Kh-31P 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.
