The Kh-38 missile series was developed in the Soviet Union during the late 1980s as a replacement for earlier models. It was designed to engage a variety of targets on the ground or at sea

The Kh-38 family includes different variants with varying guidance systems and capabilities such as the Kh-38M, Kh-38MA, Kh-38MLE, and more

The Kh-38 missiles employ various guidance systems, including laser, infrared (IR), and satellite-based navigation

The Kh-38 missiles can be launched from a range of platforms, including fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)

Some Kh-38 variants, like the Kh-38MA, are specifically designed for anti-ship warfare. These missiles are equipped with advanced guidance systems to track and engage naval targets

The range of Kh-38 missiles varies depending on the variant, but it generally falls within a range of 40 to 60 kilometers (25 to 37 miles). The missiles can reach speeds of around Mach 2

The guidance systems employed by the Kh-38 missiles contribute to their high accuracy and precision, making them effective against both stationary and moving targets

The Kh-38 missiles have been used in various conflicts and military operations. They have proven effective against ground targets, fortifications, vehicles, and naval vessels
