The addition of this new missile enhances capability oanh click on the sea and on land of the fighters are stationed at the air base north along the coast and to consolidate more power protection, especially the sovereignty of Vietnam's sea islands. Special technical points, tactics
Kh-25/25M (identified as AS-10 Kerry NATO) is not rocket - to - earth light by the Soviet / Russian development. The missile is produced in many variations through a series of modules of different navigation system and achieve a range of 10 km. Designed by Zvezda-Strela, Kh-25 was designed based on laser-guided missile Kh- 23 (AS-7 Kerry).
Until now, the new variant of the Kh-25 missiles continue to be widely used and constantly modernized. - Variations Kh-25MP/MPU missiles (AS-12 Kegler) anti-radar, which updates 25MPU Kh-level features optimized to improve anti-radar excellence, including X-band radar air defense. Kh-25MP/MPU guided by passive radar homing head and can be added both inertial guidance system to attack the target, even if no radar target signal (off)
While the Kh-25MP has a maximum cruise speed of 850 m / s (about Mach 2.5), maximum range 60 km (the average height) and 25 km (low altitude), the minimum range 3 km and error (CEP) is 5 meters, it is an upgrade to the Kh-25MPU greater weight, up to 320 kg and the maximum range reduced to 40 km.

- Kh-25ml is a tactical guided missiles, guided by the semi-active laser homing, specialized attack tactical targets are small. The missile can be launched directly from an air or free dive angle -40 degrees. Rockets built a target device detonated on impact and one bullet, so be sure to destroy all the items following criteria hide obstacles (concrete, armored vehicles and the like) and reduced pan angle hitting the surface barrier.
Kh-25ml release maximum speed is 870 m / s, range 10 km, using two types of warheads and detonate attack is frequently explosive, warhead detonated a small hole on obstacles to cross-flow heat and destroy targets behind, and the type of explosive warheads will penetrate through obstacles then explodes target.
Kh-25ml Air Force is quite common to use the export and it is designed in accordance with the adjustment of foreign aircraft. Variations include the Kh-Kh-25MUL 25ml for combat training,
- Guided missile Kh-25MR radio professionals to perform the ground, sea and mostly fitted on Su-22 aircraft in Vietnam.

Russia has also developed the variant is modified missiles and missile Kh Kh-25MS/MSE -35 satellite navigation.
However, Vietnam did not purchase these missiles lack of such a navigation system. Russia and Vietnam are also working to create variants with long-range missile complex based anti-ship missiles Kh- 35 Uranium, striving to create an anti-ship missile generation are placed on ships and on land.
