StormBreaker on F-15E: US Air Force planes receive a "smart" bomb

62

The US military has approved the Raytheon GBU-53 / B StormBreaker. It is planned to be used on F-15E Strike Eagles aircraft.


Raytheon announced a major StormBreaker event on October 13, 2020. In theory, the bomb was supposed to be put into service in August 2020, but the timing has shifted somewhat due to problems with the software and the guidance system. It also required a number of safety issues related to the bomb's tail fins to be addressed.

According to the director of the StormBreaker program at Raytheon Missiles & Defense, Christie Stagg, the bomb has performed well during numerous tests. In this case, the most difficult scenarios were tested, including difficult climatic conditions. The bomb is now finally ready to be installed on US Air Force planes.

The GBU-53 / B, originally known as the Small Diameter Bomb II (SDB II), has a three-mode guidance system capable of detecting targets using thermal infrared radar. Depending on the flight altitude of the aircraft from which the bomb will be launched, it can also independently plan, relying on the capabilities of the GPS-supported inertial navigation system, after which it can find and hit the target. According to Christy Stagg, this provides excellent capabilities to engage both stationary and moving targets at night or in bad weather.

The US Air Force Command is also pleased with the new bomb. The bomb is ready for use, according to Colonel Jason Rusco, the chief of logistics for the United States Air Force Arms Administration, who runs the SDB II program. The colonel noted that the many years of work of the US military-industrial organizations ended with the creation weaponsunrivaled and capable of changing the rules of the game in the national defense system.

The bomb's capabilities become even more effective when installed on F-15E aircraft. One Strike Eagle will be able to carry up to 28 bombs in total. Although the F-15E is the first aircraft to be allowed to use the GBU-53 / B, the US military plans to plant bombs on other aircraft in the future. In particular, this year the bomb was tested by a sea aviation US Navy from F / A-18E / F Super Hornet. These tests, by the way, were captured in the video that we demonstrate below.


In the foreseeable future, StormBreaker will be integrated into all three variants of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. These air vehicles are capable of carrying bombs inside, which will allow them to use it in those conditions when maximum stealth is needed. The addition of the StormBreaker to the F-35's arsenal significantly increases the combat capabilities of these aircraft. In addition, it is possible that the bomb will be adapted for use from unmanned aerial vehicles and stealth bombers.

It is not for nothing that Paul Ferraro, Vice President of Raytheon Missiles & Defense Air Power, gave positive assessments of the new bomb. He stressed that the StormBreaker provides unprecedented opportunities for pilots in the field.

This weapon gives pilots a significant advantage - the ability to engage sea or ground maneuvering targets at a great distance and in adverse weather,

- stressed Ferraro.

    I suppose this bomb will still be used to gut the enemy air defense system ammunition ... the same S-300, Buk, etc. serious threat.
    If one carrier can carry an ammunition load of 28 bombs, then a massive raid of F-15 equipped with such ammunition may well break through the echeloned enemy air defense defenses.

      The planning range of the bomb is even clearer ... 110 km ... if you launch 50 pieces at the same time ... it is unlikely that such a blow will be able to repel such a blow ... although you can use massively false targets in this case to minimize losses.

          The F-15E can use the new type of bombs with the BRU-61 / A holders, each of which holds four items. The maximum ammunition load is 28 bombs, but this can adversely affect the composition of other weapons and the corresponding combat capabilities.

        The video shows the Turkish analogue of the American SDB. It is effective against stationary targets with known coordinates. has a satellite navigation system + INS. And SDB-II is distinguished by the presence of a very sophisticated seeker with semi-active laser, IR and active radio guidance, i.e. can also be used against moving targets. Given the number of SDB-IIs that can be attached to a fighter jet, a highly efficient countermeasure system is needed. A possible solution is a laser complex that can disable the seeker of these missiles.

This is a strategic air defense complex designed to protect critical facilities and the most dangerous, from the point of view of the country's air defense, areas of possible strike. These complexes cannot be used in the field as military air defense. In the end there is Vityaz. But even the best complex cannot guarantee complete safety.

          Vitaly Gusin (Vitaly Gusin). First, you will learn and understand how MALD-J works. It is useless to talk with a resident of Israel about the technique of Israel, especially if you are a child! For you to familiarize yourself, so as not to write your fairy tales from time to time:
          No interference from foreign radio transmitting equipment will not be able to interfere with the functioning of the Russian S-400 systemsThat were originally created to work in conditions of strong electronic countermeasures.
          Do not think of Russian designers as fools!

          The signals of the S-400 radar stations have increased noise immunity, and in order to ensure the suppression of these stations, you need to know the logic and algorithms of the operation of this system, "Sivkov told TASS, commenting on these publications.

            That's why LIKE you are surprised by the Turkish series Bayraktar TB, for you this is the ultimate dream and technology Ankara acquired the production of UAVs from Israel, According to their characteristics, the Turkish Bayraktar TB1 and Bayraktar TB2 occupy an intermediate position between the above Israeli vehicles. Both in terms of payload and autonomy of work. Slightly modified for the realities of the Turkish industry, Bayraktar turned out to be cheaper and simpler than the Heron intended for flight at high and medium altitudes. Bayraktar does not seek to compete with the "big brother" from Israel, but has occupied the niche of medium-altitude strike reconnaissance UAVs.

            In June 1982, during the First Lebanon War, during Operation Artsav-19, the largest air battle since the Second World War took place in the skies over Lebanon, in which the Israelis using UAVs AQM-34, Tadiran Mastiff and IAI Scout defeated the air defenses of Syria and Lebanon. Syria has lost 86 combat aircraft and 18 air defense systems. This was achieved thanks to the combination of UAVs with on-board television cameras and missiles guided with their help.
            Tel Aviv decided to destroy the Syrian air defense systems in the Bekaa Valley. On June 9, 1982, at 14.00:19 pm, the Israeli Air Force subjected the positions of the air defense missile and the RTV to surprise missile and bomb attacks. In just two hours, 4 missiles were completely destroyed. Another XNUMX missiles were seriously damaged. The RTV units also suffered heavy losses. Not a single Israeli aircraft was hit during a massive air defense strike.

    F-15? This is a conspicuous plane.
    Kilometers from 200 topple him with the S-400.
    But the F-35 with such things in the inner compartment can
    fly up and 50 km unnoticed. Throw these bombs, turn around and fly away.

    voyaka uh (Alexey), deliberately not bothered, from time to time, to write a lie!
    S-400 radar will detect S-400 F-35 with medium image intensifier = 0,3 m2 on distance D = 313,990 km in free space and further, the F-35 will be guaranteed to be destroyed by a 40N6 anti-aircraft missile with ARGSN over the horizon ...
    And the F-15 will be detected earlier at a greater distance in free space, and is guaranteed to be shot down by a 40N6 anti-aircraft missile in view of the larger image intensifier
    F-15!

    What 200 km))))) It is possible to shoot down a heavy fighter only within a radius of tens of kilometers, in order to shoot down a fighter at a distance of 100 km, you need a significant overspending of missiles and a minute and a half of a missile's air defense missile system, a stupid pilot and good luck. During this time, the F-15 will be able to leave in 2 strikes.
    The standard S-300 missile defense system has a range of 75 km, but this is the point of the missile falling into the ground with its nose, and the fighter will be at an altitude above 10 km. This means that the radius for a high-altitude target must be at least 30% less.
    Air defense operators launch an air defense missile system in advance, that is, they predict where the target will be in a minute, and the further the radius, the less effective this forecast. You need Baba Wanga or Nostradamus.

    Considering that these aircraft can drop these bombs even without entering our airspace at the first strike of the C 400, they will not be able to shoot them down, and by the way, do not forget that the fighter has air-to-air missiles, which are also suitable for protection against air defense missiles flying towards.

      Vadim237! Give an example, when the RVV-BD AIM-120 (USA) was able to shoot down a 40N6 anti-aircraft missile? You won't! For you:
      It is noteworthy that the four-year tests of the rocket took place in complete secrecy. Such a long launch range is in itself a unique characteristic. But more importantly, according to some sources, the missile is capable of hitting targets at altitudes up to 185 km. Calculations show that the most advanced US air defense system THAAD, with a range and height of 200 km and 200 km, respectively, has a maximum slant range of no more than 280 km. A similar indicator of the 40N6 type SAM is up to 440 km. It is also important that the rocket has a very high flight speed - up to 4,5 km / sec (440 km will fly in 100 seconds).

      It is assumed that this missile defense system may enter service with the Russian Navy. In this case, the American "Aegis" will be significantly inferior to the "four hundred" and "five hundred".

      About 300-400 thousand dollars per unit - for this a small bomb can destroy the most protected bunker bunker and caponier
      if drones begin to arm them with it, then in general bad weather conditions like night will not be a problem for them.

        Rather "when" rather than "if". The only problem I see is a low initial speed, i.e. the cast range may drop.

    Thanks. He asked, because in the photo she looks no worse than Tesla.
    Well this is necessary to slam some barmale in the caves,
    almost half a lama do not mind just a bomb. Whether it's in the Second World War - thrown
    whatever was at hand, "homemade" used both sides.
