Russian Su-30SM fighters will receive a new heavy air-to-surface missile, as part of the development work “Adaptation-Su”.


According to experts, we are talking about equipping the Sukhoi with the Kh-32 liquid hypersonic missile, which was previously used only on long-range Tu-22M3 bombers [it is also possible that an even more modern super-high-speed ammunition, still secret, will appear in the arsenal of fighters]. Such powerful missiles are capable of radically increasing the capabilities of aviation – with them, aircraft will be able to hit surface and ground targets at a distance of up to 1000 kilometers.

Russian engineers are developing a fundamentally new powerful weapon to equip Sukhoi fighters, Izvestia sources in the military-industrial complex told, without specifying a specific model. The planes will also receive upgraded onboard electronics.

According to the documents at the disposal of Izvestia, development work (ROC) on the modernization of the Su-30SM began in 2015 and received the designation “Adaptation-Su”. Several leading companies of the military-industrial complex are involved in it, including the State Machine-Building Design Bureau “Raduga” named after A.Ya. Bereznyak. GosMKB is the largest domestic manufacturer of supersonic and hypersonic weapons for aviation.

To ensure the use of the latest ammunition, according to the documents, the N011M Bars radar will be modified. They will also update the fighter’s computer system and the onboard defense system, and replace foreign components with domestic ones. Completion of work on the development of modernization of the aircraft is scheduled for the end of the year.

Under the name of the ROC “Adaptation-Su” there are several different programs for the creation of missiles for attack aircraft, Dmitry Kornev, editor of the militaryrussia portal, told Izvestia. These include work on the Kh-32, a modern modification of the rather old Kh-22 missile, which is used on the Tu-22M3 bomber. In addition, within the framework of these R&D projects, more modern hypersonic missiles, still secret, are being created.
