Kh-59MK
Extended-range air-to-surface missile

The Kh-59MK extended-range air-to-surface missile with an active radar seeker is a version of the Kh-59M TV-guided air-launched missile and is designed to engage radar-contrast surface targets (with RCS ≥ 300 m²) in tactical and immediate operational depth, ranging from boats to cruisers, from the Su-30MK type carrier aircraft. Replacing the booster for a fuel tank has increased the range from 115 to 285 km.

The Kh-59MK missile can be used day or night, in adverse weather conditions, at Sea State up to 6, both on the high seas and near the coastline.

The Kh-59MK missile is designed to equip the following types of aircraft: MiG-35, Su-30MK, Su-32, Su-35, Su-24M.
