X-101 - strategic cruise missile class "air - ground" using technologies to reduce radar visibility. Developed by the design bureau "Rainbow" (1995-2013).
The missile is made on a new technological basis and has, according to Russian officials, exclusively Russian equipment.
Uses a combined guidance system. Can receive information both on a route, and on coordinates of the purpose.
Unlike previous-generation missiles, there is a fundamental possibility of changing the target when the missile is already flying.
The missile adjusts its route with the help of an inertial navigation system, a laser altimeter, and a homing head is turned on in front of the target. The mass of the X-101 warhead is 400 kg.
The missile can be high-explosive, penetrating, cassette and volume-detonating.
It will be recalled that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports that the occupiers have focused their main efforts on the Lysychansk direction and are trying to surround the city.
