For instance, the MAKS-2019 will demonstrate Grom-E1 airborne guided missile and Grom-E2 airborne guided gliding munition.

The Grom-E1 missile is designed for engaging targets with known coordinates. The maximum launch range is 120 km, the launch altitude varies from 500 to 12,000 m, the medium flight speed is 300 m/s; the guidance is provided by inertial satellite navigation system. The guidance precision is ensured by the GLONASS and/or GPS satellite navigation systems. The missile launch weight is 594 kg; the payload includes a contact explosive device and HEF warhead weighing 315 kg. The engine is comprised of a solid fuel booster and a sustainer.

The Grom-E2 guided gliding munition is designed for engaging targets with known coordinates. The maximum launch range is 50 km, launch altitude from 500 to 12,000 m, the guidance is provided by the inertial satellite navigation system. The guidance precision is ensured by the GLONASS and/or GPS satellite navigation systems. The munition launch weight is 598 kg. The payload includes a contact explosive device and two HEF warheads, weighing 315 and 165 kg.

In addition, KTRV will demonstrate at the MAKS-2019 its Kh-35UE tactical anti-ship missile, Kh-38MLE airborne modular short-range guided missile with a combined navigation system that includes an inertial system and a laser seeker head, Kh-31AD airborne high-speed anti-ship missile, Kh-31PD airborne anti-radar missiles, Kh-59MK extended range air-to-surface missile, Kh-58UShKE airborne anti-radar missile, RVV-BD, RVV-SD and RVV-MD guided air-to-air missiles, APR-3E airborne antisubmarine missile, and KAB-250LG-E airborne guided bomb fitted with a laser seeker head and a high explosive fragmentation warhead. The Ryazan-based RKB Globus Design Bureau will present the OKA-E-1 airborne guided weapons preparation system. This is designed for preparation and maintenance of airborne weapon systems, including their preparation for operational employment and monitoring of technical condition in storage and during repair.

Also, the KTRV enterprises will show at the MAKS-2019 the VT-DG7 electrical lock for suspending loads weighing up to 7 tons under the Mi-8, Mi-171 and Mi-38 helicopter fuselage, reversing device for the PD-14 advanced aircraft engine and Kudesnik parachute jump simulator.
