Russian shock drones will receive 9-A-7759 Thunder planning bombs

The Russian drone drone “Okhotnik” and “Altius” will be armed with high-precision gliding bombs 9-A-7759 “Thunder”. According to Izvestia, citing a source in the military-industrial complex, a fundamental decision on this has already been taken.


According to the publication, the planning bomb 9-A-7759 "Thunder" has already been integrated into the weapons system of the heavy attack drone S-70 "Hunter". Tests for the discharge of mass-scale munitions of ammunition from the drone have already been carried out and are considered successful. In the case of Altius, the integration of planning bombs with the weapon system is not yet complete. In 2018, R&D was conducted to assess the feasibility of using ammunition from a drone, but they were not completed due to a temporary suspension of work on the drone project and the transfer of its development. Ammunition integration is ongoing.

It is reported that the Altius medium drone is capable of carrying two gliding munitions 9-A-7759, and the heavy S-70 Hunter up to four in the internal compartments on the external sling.

The planning bomb 9-A-7759 Thunder was developed by Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation in three versions. The weight of the bomb in two versions is about 600 kg, in the third - around 490 kg. Case length - 4192 mm, diameter - 310 mm.

Option 9-A-7759, in addition to folding wings, is equipped with a small jet engine. The flight range is 120 km, the mass of military equipment is 315 kg, the power of a high-explosive fragmentation warhead is 2 OFAB 250.

Option 9-A1-7759 - the main engine is replaced with an additional high-explosive fragmentation charge. The flight range is 65 km, the mass of the warhead reaches 480 kg, and the power is 1,5 OFAB 500U.

Option 9-A2-7759. It has a high-explosive fragmentation warhead replaced by a thermobaric. The flight range is 65 km, the mass of the warhead is 370 kg, and the power is 2 KAB 500 OD.

Ammunition is inflicted using the onboard inertial navigation system and the signals of the GLONASS and NAVSTAR satellites. Deviation from the target at the maximum range is no more than 10 meters.

        It would also be nice to integrate the X-59MK2 for use with the Hunter.
        9-A-7759, heavy S-70 "Hunter" up to four in the internal compartments.


        The planning bomb 9-A-7759 Thunder was developed by Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation in three versions. The weight of the bomb in two versions is about 600 kg, in the third - around 490 kg. Case length - 4192 cm, diameter - 310 cm.


        I hope that the Hunter can also carry up to 4 X-59MK2 in the internal compartments. The sizes 9-A-7759 and X-59MK2 are quite comparable, and the difference in weight is not significant.
        Dimensions X-59MK2.
        Length - 4,2 m
        Wingspan - 2,45 m
        Case dimensions - 0,40 x 0,40 m
        The area of ​​the EPR in the frontal projection is less than 0.01 sq.m

        Weight - 770 kg
        The mass of the warhead - 310 kg

      So far - this, unfortunately, is just Wishlist. Neither Altius nor even the Hunter will be sent to Syria yet. But the fact that such work is ongoing and how far they have come is very gratifying!

    The power is now measured in the OFAB and the KAB ... Or were the warheads of the corresponding bombs just stuffed there?

      Figs knows him, everything became somehow complicated
      the power still depends on the filling, not always a little explosive is a little power
      for example, barrel bombs on TNT do not clap 3 km / s
      on RDX, detonation is 9 km / s, and on HMX (CX): 12 km / s

        The United States is armed with a 130-kg glide GBU-39, Israel - 150-kg Spice-250. And these ammunition have their own niche. The mass of the bomb is small, the effect is achieved by high precision hits. The small ammunition is hardly noticeable (the bomb has an EPR of about 0,015 m2, which makes it difficult to repulse a massive strike with such means with the help of SAM), they can be taken aboard by relatively small UAVs

            And in order to destroy the object with a guarantee, the more TNT, the more reliable.

            is not a fact. There are two diametrically opposite methods of hitting a target.
            1. Brute force - do not care for a slip in the warhead of megatons of TNT. It just doesn’t always work, because the power of the explosion is proportional to the cube of distance. Well, the mass and dimensions of ammunition, of course, please)) Where is the low cost here ???
            2. Accurate hit. It is along this path that the most promising developments are currently underway. It all started with nuclear weapons — the more accurate the guidance systems became, the less powerful the missile’s warheads — either the missile flew further (due to less load) or carried more blocks.

            So with conventional weapons. You can take more light bombs (and hit more targets for a departure), or you can take more fuel and increase the combat radius, as well as use these bombs from a wider range of aircraft. And for targets such as a tank, SAM, combat vehicles and the MLRS and OTRK - that a 500 kg bomb will fly in them, that a 150 kg bomb - it will still be destroyed with a direct hit.

              Maybe the first "test of the pen"? But then it turns out that Russia is 20 years behind them in planning bombs.

                as for the Spice-250 kit - it has been used since 2003, GBU-39 - since 2005. Kits for free-falling bombs that turn them into correctable ones have been used in the West for a long time.
                Russia, alas, is clearly not in the lead here. And we do not have small-sized UABs - they are only going to create them (for promising UAVs)

      Given that Hunter will most likely often work with fighters and bombers in tandem (not only with the SU-57), the pilots will have an additional burden. But at the same time, there will be many times more opportunities for working on the earth.
      There is more to the question of how massive Altiuses and Hunters will be in the VKS.

    Oh, good), not only will it not be included in the anti-aircraft defense, it’s also from a drone, just a dream, a dream ... it's up to the intelligence.

    Here you have a bunch of Su 57 + Hunter. Su 57 sees the enemy radar, air defense and so on, and gives the command to Hunter, I don’t know at what distance, but I really think there will be a connection between them 50 km, total 120 + 50 = 170 km. It’s really safe for the pilot!

    Ps
    Tell me pliz, "small jet engine" is it easy or difficult to detect air defense (everyone's air defenses are different, but generally understand)?

      in the United States for a long time at 140 there is and is away and there are all sorts of 120. the truth is from them .... especially in a real war .. the more so against the army. directly impresses as an example in Yugoslavia on 10 tanks it took 600 clever ammunition ....

    usually they write a maximum planning range and this is when starting at an altitude of 15 km at a very high speed (more than cruising it is all 500-700 km / h) and yet literally all supersonic planes pull at that altitude with such a small load and for very short time. so 120 is straightforward. but from low altitudes it will be below 30. The same PRR harm flies to 34 but from 10 km it’s already under 70 and from 15 km it manages to fly 104 before falling. Similarly, a dagger launched from Tu22 flies 2000 km from Mig31 and it is 1000 but for a different altitude and discharge speed.

        nyo there is a nuance all the proofs say otherwise and you stupidly confuse the maximum speed with the actual wassat but it’s written more than once that the speed with the load is lower right in the post I have a specialist for the gifted, versed in politics, every one benefit you.

        Maximum range of damage to the complex:
        MiG-31K - 2000 km according to the press conference of the Supreme Commander. For MiG-31K (without combat radius of the carrier).
        Tu-22M3 - more than 3000 km

    Not certainly in that way. The complex itself consists of three modular ammunition. Option 9-A-7759 - this is not a planning bomb, but a guided missile. a range of 120 km is achieved when starting from a height of 12000 meters at a speed of 445 m / s. Option number 2 and number 3 - 9-A1-7759 and 9-A2-7759 - planning bombs with a range of 65 km. And the combat effectiveness of the Thunder-1 (9-A-7759) is not 2 * OFAB-250, but 1,8 * OFAB-250-270.
