This supersonic a2g or anti-ship missile was considered as one of rival of Brahmos perhaps.
This missile I believe was mid-weight class between Kh-41 and Kh-31
This missile was called Alpha (Альфа) which first displayed as a mockup on MAKS2005, but according to some other photos, it really loaded at
least if not entranced in serves.
According to the photo, it looks used turbo engine rather than ramjet which Brahmos used.
With compared size, it seems to be similar to Brahmos and because of turbo jet, it will be heavier than 2500kg which for Brahmos air launched.
But all of above I have no detailed information and accurate data concerning this secret missile.
Do you have more story?
BTW, the weapon load Su-34 has looks like over 10tons maybe 12tons, which much beyond than what we considered 8 tons ever before.
