The Kh-31A high-speed airborne antiship missile with  an active radar homing head (ARHH) is designed to destroy ships of different types including the destroyers, proceeding both alone and as a part of striking groups under any weather conditions, by day and night.
The Kh-31A missile can be used individually or in salvo.
ARHH ensures target acquisition and selection (at trajectory or before missile launch).

The Kh-35E (3M-24E) tactical antiship missile is designed to destroy guided missiles, motor torpedo and gun boats, surface ships with displacement up to 5000 t, as well as marine transports. The Kh-35E tactical antiship missile may be launched from:
- shipborne missile systems of the Unar-E type;
- coastal mobile systems of the Bal-E type;
- air force combat complexes of tactical and naval aviation, search and patrol aircraft and helicopters.
The Kh-35E antiship missile can be used under visual and adverse weather conditions, by day and night, in enemy’s severe fire and RCM environment.
The missile low signature is provided by its small size, critically low altitude flight trajectory, as well as special guidance algorithm. Targeting data can be supplied both from the carrier equipment and from the external sources.

The X-59MK airborne enhanced-range air-to-surface guided missile with the ARGS-59E active radar homing head is derived from the X-59ME missile with the TV/command guidance system. It is designed for engagement of a wide range of radar-contrast sea surface targets in both fair and adverse weather conditions at Sea States up to 6.
The missile makes part of weapon systems of the Su-30 type aircraft.

The APR-3E airborne antisubmarine missile is designed to engage modern and prospective submarines in any position (on sea surface, under periscope or submerged down to 800 m) at a cruising speed of up to 80 km/h.
The APR-3E missile is unified for combat use from the Tu-142/Il-38 type antisubmarine warfare aircraft and Ka-28 type helicopters, etc. It can be effectively employed over splash-down water areas at least 100-m deep at Sea States up to 6 in all regions of the world ocean.
The APR-3E missile is equipped with a hydroacoustic guidance system using target data classification methods. The missile performs silent target search by scanning underwater space during gravity submersion along a spiral trajectory without starting the engine. The turbo-hydrojet engine is started as soon as the target has been detected and ensures meeting the target within a minimal time (1 - 2 min) making it virtually impossible for the target to evade or counteract.
