Description: The Kh-55 is a long range, cruise missile designed to carry a nuclear warhead and to be launched by a strategic bomber. It features an inertial navigation system combined with a terrain correction system which compares the terrain with stored digital maps in the missile's computer memory. The Kh-55 is the Soviet counterpart to American AGM-86 ALCM cruise missile. The Kh-55 cruise missiles have been deployed with the Tu-160 Blackjack strategic bombers beginning in 1984. The improved Kh-55MS, AS-15B Kent reported NATO-codename, version was fielded in the 1990s. Russia will convert some Kh-55 nuclear capable missiles to Kh-555 conventionally armed cruise missile similarly to American AGM-86.
