The analysis of X-55 cruise missile (NATO code:AS-15 "Kent") guidance and navigation systems, as well as their modifications X-555 and X-101 conducted by Ukrainian experts showed that "modern" guidance units were developed in 1960-1970 and produced by the Voronezh Radio Parts Plant, Minsk plant "Integral" and other enterprises of the Soviet Union.

Also, the "newest" missiles use the navigation system "PGI-2M". Developed in 1977, it was mass-installed on Su-27 or MiG-29 aircraft of the Soviet period.

Reminder by Defense Express:

Attacking Ukraine, Russia is exhausting its stocks of missiles. Its military-industrial complex has to work 24/7 to replenish them. The sanctions imposed on Russia severely undermine its capacities in this regard.

Over 20 Russian military enterprises were forced to suspend their activities in whole or in part due to shortage of parts and components, as well as rising prices due to sanctions, including the research and production enterprise "Vimpel" (production of aircraft missiles) and the only Russian tank company "Uralvagonzavod".
