Long-range AAM project, started circa 1978 - probably an alternative branch of R-33 (Izdeliye 410) development along with R-37 (Izdeliye 610) for Tu-160P.

Resembled a slimmed-down Raduga Kh-22 missile in layout, with dual-mode solid fuel rocket motor and integral rocket-ramjet (Izdeliye 551) variants studied. This version had a single ventral intake.

Cancelled circa 1988.
