KS-1 Kometa Khodinka 25 Aug 1995124 viewsThe first Soviet cruise missile to enter limited production was the air launched KS-1 Kometa or AS-1 Kennel, which was essentially a derivative of the MiG-15 Fagot airframe, built as an anti-shipping weapon. Development was initiated in 1947 resulting the first missiles entering service during the Korean War period, carried by the Tu-4 Bull, a reverse engineered Boeing B-29. The Tu-4KS variant was equipped with the K-1M X-band radar and provided beam riding midcourse guidance for the Kometa ASCM. Once the Kometa was near enough to the target, guidance switched to the K-2 semi-active homing seeker in the nose of the missile, relying on illumination from the K-1M radar.
