The US press writes about Washington's intentions to transfer JDAM kits to Ukraine to turn conventional bombs into high-precision ones.

Recently, literally daily publications have been published in the American press regarding the "consideration of opportunities" for the supply of new species to Ukraine. weapons administration of the United States. One of the untwisted stories is connected with publications about the alleged readiness to supply Patriot air defense and missile defense systems to Kyiv in the form of one complex. Then in the same press they began to refute such readiness of Washington. Now they are writing about other options for deliveries from the USA.


The Washington Post published an article by columnist Dan Lamothe, in which he writes that the United States is ready to transfer equipment to Ukraine that will “turn aviation bombs into precision weapons. We are talking about JDAM systems.

These sets of equipment have been produced in the USA since 1997 and are a set based on the provision of ammunition with GPS global positioning systems. These kits allow you to make a much more accurate weapon out of a conventional gravity (free-falling) bomb.

The JDAM kits also include additional plumage, which is mounted on an aerial bomb at the factory.

Among the operators of such weapons, in addition to the United States itself, are Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Germany, Australia, Portugal, Poland and others. Moreover, these are the countries that are armed with NATO-style aircraft. To date, there have been no known cases in which JDAM equipment sets would be installed on Soviet-style bombs or when Western bombs with such additional equipment would be used on aircraft developed by Soviet aircraft designers. If such kits are handed over to Ukraine, it will be extremely interesting to find out on which aircraft they will be used.

    I believe that on an unmanned aerial vehicle. They will throw this shit to them too

      Not necessarily ... after the training of Ukrainian Air Force cadets in the USA ... deliveries of F16 from different countries may begin in the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the ensuing consequences.
      Even the most fantastic version is now quite feasible in this war.

        With what consequences? I ask again, f-16, is it indestructible? The Ukrainian fleet of combat aircraft before the start of the war was more than 300 aircraft. Where are they all? Something I have not heard about the massive use of Ukrainian aviation. Here and there, once a week, individual specimens appear, which immediately land. Aviation is good when there is a lot of it and when the enemy has weak air defense, otherwise, they are just flying targets, following the example of "bayraktars".

        Heavy M985 tractors from the Patriot air defense system have already been spotted in Ukraine
        The Patriot itself is not in the video, only the tractor

      UAVs should be too heavy ... For the kit is designed for large bombs ...
      And even if you hang it on small ones ... it will cost many times more than a bomb

      Drones, even strike drones, have two weak points - they fly slowly, they take little. The very concept of JDAM makes sense with bombs of a large enough caliber, so drones are no longer needed. Remain KAMIKAZE. Again, the old F-16s need to be disposed of somehow.

    F * cut should be cut down already - let them fly on Glonass ... According to the mind, we are in our right. if it is applied against our country. So you can put before the fact - when transferring Patriots / ZhiDAMs - we cut down your satellites. Unofficially, so to speak, and burn a couple with overexposure, for greater accessibility - and let them prove that it was not "it itself bent"

      Excuse me , but how do you imagine it technically ? Read about the composition, number and orbits of the satellite constellation of NATO countries over Khokhlostan. It's technically impossible

        Come on!!! No need here about the impossible. Even as possible technically and in several ways. That's what is politically impossible is closer to the truth.

      In my mind, we are within our rights. if it is applied against our country.

      No, well, that's the way it is, of course, yes ...
      Only if about our right to remember every time. when somewhere someone uses something against us - you can’t get enough of Europe and the Americas on us, glass everyone ... At least, from this point of view, it was also necessary to beat the Maidan, the American witch with a string bag of cookies . Because its ultimate goal is no different from the goals of those who are now supplying weapons to Kyiv. And those cookies, in terms of harm to our country, are no different from Chimeras and everything else that is now going to Ukraine.
      Another witch, however, Ukrainian, wearing Louboutins, even then called for "burning Moscow with nuclear weapons." What is not the right to gasp?

      Although...
      I do not agree with you only, so to speak, technologically. We don't have a spare planet nearby. There is nowhere to evacuate all of Russia. And the rest - everything is correct.

        There are no options. Impunity gives rise to permissiveness, and what does it threaten ... Should I remind you that for a good 20 years mattresses have been ringing in all pots, that tactical nuclear weapons are not at all scary and there have been more destructive conventional weapons for a long time? This is for an example.
        Generally. Russia’s foreign policy has been quite successful so far, anti-Russian centers in Georgia have been eliminated, for example, an international militant base on the Iraq-Syria-Afghan route, and then obviously through the same Georgia, for example, or pro-American Armenia to Russia ... But all this can easily be leveled by the armament of the Nazis something really dangerous, but slowly everything goes to that

      The satellites are hanging at an altitude of about 38 km from the Earth, what Peresvets and the like? The laser beam is coherent radiation, but at such a distance, the beam diameter with a fraction of a millimeter will grow in fractions of a kilometer, respectively, power dissipation

        To be more precise, 20180 km (semi-diurnal orbit) and yes, it’s far away, but blinding the orientation system to the Earth is not a problem.

    They say that if you send a truckload of gravel into the right orbit, it will knock out all the satellites over time. Of course, it will be hard to live without navigation, but the West will also lose its main advantage in communications and navigation.

      I heard, including here, talk about a bucket of bolts, and about a car of cut foil scattered in orbit ...

      I myself am weak in space matters - at the level of news in newspapers and a physics course in the volume of a secondary school and a construction institute. But I remember that those who understand reacted violently here - from hysterical laughter to outright abuse.

    for the supply of new types of weapons to Ukraine
    And this, unfortunately, will continue until Europe and the United States turn inside out, which is unlikely. This means that only the complete defeat of the VFU with access to the western borders remains.
    on which aircraft they will be used.
    At first, most likely on UAVs, and later on, the delivery of NATO aircraft is just around the corner.

      How do you propose to go to the western borders, at the expense of what? The technical advantage is on their side. On the wrong side, as you yourself noted, they will not turn out.
      So how can the RF Armed Forces reach the western borders of Ukraine?

      Artamonov said back in November that at the Ramstein base in Germany, Khokhlatsky pilots were already being trained for American efki. So their appearance in the sky of Ukraine is just a matter of the near future. Just like Abramsov with Leopards

    An excellent example of solving military issues. The only pity is that these bombs will soon fly to our cities and kill our people. If we had the opportunity to create such solutions in commercial quantities, then the front line today would not pass along Bakhmutka, but along the Western Bug.

    There is no doubt that the Americans will provide the outskirts not only with the weapons themselves, but with the means of their delivery. They know that the army of the Russian Federation is not a rival for them in terms of weapons, therefore they will not reckon with anyone's opinion and will supply the outskirts with all new and more and more high-precision and deadly weapons of confrontation with the Russian Federation. There is a war going on to destroy the statehood of Russia, and for this the Americans and NATO will spare nothing and no one. Our many months of marking time in one place contributes to the depletion of our potential and the growth of the potential of the outskirts. Sooner or later, their common potential with NATO will force the Russian government to accept a peace treaty on their terms. And this is a collapse for Russia.
