The Kh-59MK2 air-to-surface guided missile is a version of the Kh-59MK missile and is designed to engage a wide range of fixed ground targets with known coordinates in tactical and immediate operational depth (within 285 km), including those having no radar, infrared and optical contrast relative to the surrounding background.
The low-altitude flight path of the missile to the target is specified in the flight mission.
One or several flight missions can be entered into the missile’s control system to enable the missile assignment to different targets.
The Kh-59MK2 carries a correlation-optical seeker providing autonomous recognition of the terrain area adjacent to the target. Its navigation system is based on a strapdown Inertial navigation system unit with a satellite updating unit.
The missile can be employed at any time of year, at terrain illumination of 0.003 lx to 30,000 lx, over any type of terrain (given the optical contrast in the correction and terminal guidance zone exceeds 10%).
The Kh-59MK2 is designed for used on the following types of aircraft: MiG-35, Su-30MK, Su-32, Su-35, Su-24M.
