Russia begins exporting the latest aviation concrete-piercing missiles X-59MKM.

The first foreign customer will receive a batch of aviation concrete-piercing missiles X-59MKM by the end of the year. This was reported to RIA Novosti by a military-diplomatic source. They are designed to defeat well-protected command posts and can break through the protection of concrete slabs.

For the first time, the export X-59MKM was presented at the MAKS-2021 forum. This is a modernized version of the Soviet X-59 Gadfly missile, developed by the A. Ya .Bereznyak State Machine-Building Design Bureau Raduga (part of the Tactical Missile Armament Corporation).

The main feature of the X-59MKM is in the design of a tandem penetrating warhead with a main charge weighing 320 kilograms and a pre-charge with a total weight of 40 kilograms.

The missile finds the target using the SNAU-59MK-02 navigation and automatic control system, presumably using inertial satellite guidance. The circular probable deviation is 10 meters.

The launch mass of the X-59MKM is 930 kilograms, the length is 5.7 meters, the wingspan is 1.3 meters. The flight altitude is from 15 to 2000 meters. The maximum flight range is 285 kilometers.
