Egypt has published rare footage of launches of Russian X-35 missiles


A short video has appeared on the Web showing the launch of the Kh-35 air-to-surface cruise missile (GRAU index - 3M24, NATO codification - AS-20 Kayak) from the Egyptian Air Force MiG-29M2 multipurpose fighter. Perhaps the Egyptians once again decided to hint at the Turks about their groundless claims in Libya by publishing really rare footage.


It should be noted that the video recorded the moment the target was hit by a variant of a subsonic low-altitude anti-ship ammunition of an aircraft-based missile system "Uran". There is also a helicopter version, shipborne and for coastal mobile systems.

Design Bureau "Zvezda" has been developing it since 1977. In 2003, the ammunition was put into service in ship and coastal versions. In 2005, it was adapted for airborne deployment. The X-35 is designed to destroy ships and vessels with a displacement of up to 5 thousand tons.

The carriers are: Su-24, Su-30, MiG-29, Su-35S and Tu-142 aircraft; helicopters Ka-27, Ka-28 and Ka-52K; a very large range of ships (from missile boats to destroyers); coastal missile system "Ball".

In addition, in 2011 a container version of the complex appeared. 4 missiles and control equipment are in a standard 20-foot container.


The Kh-35 missile has a decent potential for modernization, is cheap and mass-produced. The operating range is from 130 to 260 km, depending on the modification.

    Turks have already demonstrated their capabilities in Libya, Karabakh and Syria, although still approx. about a year ago, here some very anxious superpatriots on the site tore a vest on their chest and assured that the Turks would do a little mess and wipe their snouts wherever they put their heads, quickly collecting fishing rods. Forced agreements on the division of zones of influence with a very difficult "ally" who doesn’t even have an hour for you in any convenient situation, you just have to turn your back and mumble.
    So no matter how the Egyptians try to puff their cheeks and threaten with what actually effective weapons with an unknown amount in service, they have no warriors at all. Ottomans stupidly cartridges may not be enough.

      And you will voice the losses of the Turks in all these adventures?
      The population there is not very fond of receiving funerals.

        and what has it somehow influenced the behavior of the Turks? Where did they leave: from Libya, Syria, or have they stopped fussing with the Kurds?

          This means that the losses are not yet critical, during the war with Egypt they will be several times higher.
