The missiles X-31AD and X-31PD are high sophisticated missiles. The first is an anti-ship air-to-ground long-range supersonic missile, which is unrivaled in the world. The second, the X-31PD is an anti-radar air-to-ground guided missile with a homing device.

The technical characteristics of these missiles (range, speed, load weight, etc..) are far exceeding those of their foreign analogues, said the CEO.
