If the images are to be believed (and they are different from the R-73 and R-77 images), these would appear to basically be new models of the R-73 and R-77. Which isn't a bad thing, as it lets the PAK-FA designers craft the internal weapons bays around known dimensions.

They look like Deep Upgrades to existing missile , more of a trying to keep at pace with ROW.

From previous reports , the RSA-MD was suppose to be AIM-120C7 equivalent and RSA-MD AIM-9X/Python-4 equivalent.
