The Kh-29 (NATO codename AS-14 Kedge) is a Russian air-to-surface missile, made by the Molniya Design Bureau (their only air to ground munition). It is produced in several variations, the Kh-29TD television guided missile, and the Kh-29L laser-guided missile, as well as the Kh-29D, with a thermal imaging head. The first firing of the missile took place in 1976 and after extensive trials the Kh-29 was accepted into service .
Almost half the weight of this munition is constituted by the warhead, making it highly suitable for heavily reinforced targets. It is comparable to the American AGM-65 Maverick missile but with a larger size . The Kh-29 is intended for primary use against larger battlefield targets and infrastructures such as industrial buildings, airports, depots and bridges.
These missiles can be carried by a wide variety of aircraft, such as the Su-27 family, and most other Russian strike aircraft.
