How an additional device turns an ordinary air bomb into a precision weapon

One of the topics discussed today in the field of armaments has become the so-called "gliding bombs".


It should be noted that this weapon really worthy of attention, as it has a number of advantages.

Let's start with the fact that in most cases we are not talking about a bomb created from scratch, but about modernized by installing a special module with drop-down wings on it.

Consequently, almost any 250 or 500 kg air bomb can be turned into a precision weapon (perhaps there are already modules for 1000 kg bombs), which is very profitable, given the amount of these ammunition stored in warehouses in different countries. But that's not all.

Thanks to the drop-down wings, the modernized aerial bomb is capable of gliding, moving away from its carrier at a distance of about 50 km (Iranian developers claim 60). This means that an aircraft armed with glide bombs is capable of delivering strikes without entering the enemy's air defense coverage area, at least of a short or medium radius.

Finally, the electronics used in the installed module controls the planning of the ammunition and aims it at the target with high accuracy. The same Iranian developers claim that their upgraded aerial bombs are capable of hitting even targets such as a single infantry fighting vehicle or a tank. Presumably, the device uses inertial or satellite guidance systems.

It is worth adding that the above know-how is already used by many armies of the world. Similar devices are promised to be delivered to Kyiv by the United States.

At the same time, taking into account the "deposits" of FABs in our warehouses, the presence of these modules in the Russian army would make a significant contribution to the implementation of the goals of the NMD in Ukraine.

    So what's the problem then?
    Why are FABs not used in this way ... SU-34s can bombard the enemy’s fortified areas without entering the zone of destruction of enemy weapons.
    And the crews of the aircraft will not have to risk ... which have already lost several.

          Unfortunately, nothing is heard about the use of this planning bomb PBK-500U, apparently the industry has not mastered mass production, and this bomb would be extremely useful and inexpensive compared to the KR.

          Dost, back in the early 2000s, the BASALT NPO suggested that the RF Ministry of Defense equip all of our old free-falling aerial bombs with planning and correction modules! Apparently then the RF Ministry of Defense was not interested in this. But in vain! Now aerial bombs, equipped with planning and correction modules from NPO BAZAL, would be useful to our army! We could have had adjustable glide bombs in service for a long time!

      Because the range of dropping such an air bomb is up to 30 kilometers, that is, in the coverage area of ​​the S-300 and Buk. Is it possible to additionally attach a powder accelerator to the air bomb, so that at least a dozen more kilometers would be added ... Then it is possible to launch without entering the zone of destruction of the medium-range air defense system.

          What are the problems with electronics? The GLONASS-guided seeker is the least complex, cheapest, the only thing is that they only work on stationary targets, so they could bomb the bridges across the Dnieper, which many people like to talk about on the forum.

        You do not take into account that the S-300 and Buki are not placed close to the LBS, otherwise they will quickly become targets for anti-radar missiles. So aviation can quite safely use planning bombs, all world experience confirms this. Well, the fact that there is no absolute weapon and you can find a bolt for every nut is an obvious truth.

        Alt22, then a rocket engine is already better right away, and not a powder accelerator. How the Americans did it by installing a rocket engine on their AGM-154 JSOW glide bomb. Then it will be possible to launch without entering the zone of destruction of the long-range air defense system.

      Yesterday they showed in a video somewhere near Kleshchevka the use of the FAB 500 on a target using such a device with a bomb. So we not only have it, but have begun to use it. Yes, and there was an article in the press about this development, implemented in record time. So far, for bombs from 100 to 500 kg. The data was not given for the launch range, it probably depends on the height. But the fact that the guidance system is like that of a high-precision missile weapon was mentioned

    The ability to hit and control the planning of the bomb is one factor. But there is a question about the transfer of this very target designation. The problem is the same as with the original concept of the "red field". The projectile was supposed to be guided by a laser beam, illumination carried out by a special group of SOF or military intelligence located apparently behind the front line. Perhaps for a low-intensity war and against irregulars like the Syrian conflict, this was possible. But with the intensity of hostilities in the NWO mode, experience shows that the reconnaissance group practically cannot go unnoticed and instantly turns into an assault unit. Yes, and there is no "front line" but there is one continuous fortification, consisting of many kilometers of protected firing positions. Reconnaissance is carried out not by ground groups (the covert movement of which is impossible to ensure) but by means of UAVs. And accordingly, it is necessary to resolve the issue either with guidance on the satellite coordinates of the GLONASS system (which is partly resolved in the Orion army system) or technically integrate laser illumination into the UAV.

In theory and in practice, according to the charter and according to a healthy mind. How can the GOS see the spot if you highlight the "back" of the target? And if by mistake you sparkle with your beam? And finally, have you seen how much the illumination equipment weighs, how much to carry and return it to / from the enemy’s til?

      the question of the transfer of this very target designation.

      But why?
      If an analogue of JDAM costs up to 200 euros (imported parts), then it’s just that the IR is equi-signal in a third of the bombs, and another third is aimed at radio stations or cell phones, the rest, yes, for illumination.
      IR is equal-signal, if there are a lot of such bombs, this is the removal of equipment, and all heated shelters. Yes, and without field kitchens, the enemy will be uncomfortable. Targeting by GSM is also a good thing, if you make an IMEI filter so that the bomb goes not to cheap phones of privates, but to the 12th iPhones of commanders.

        It allows you not to enter the zone of tori and shells (for them, the bomb itself is already a target), with beeches already on the verge, and the S-300/400 will clap their hands.

          Reality shows the opposite. Israel is bombing with F-16s protected by Buk and S-300 objects in Syria with absolute impunity. At best, a small part of the bombs is knocked down.
          The aviation action algorithm is simple. The RER systems locate the least “visible” radar zones, a fighter / bomber flies into this zone at extremely low altitudes, makes a slide to the required height, releases bombs, makes an anti-missile maneuver and returns back at extremely low altitudes.
          In fact, the aircraft is in the theoretical zone of operation of the air defense radar for a few minutes, this is not enough to detect, identify, take on escort and hit the target. Even if this happens, given that most air defense missiles are controlled by radio command, it is enough for the aircraft to go below the radio horizon.
          Naturally, air defense crews are further away from protected objects. Considering the massive use of high-precision projectiles and chimarsoids, deep in the rear. Accordingly, at a depth of 50-100 km from the front, all warehouses, command posts, positions are under the impact of 250-500 kg of bombs.
          The only way out is the constant patrolling of AWACS aircraft along with fighters. Naturally, it was best to destroy the Ukrainian Air Force in the first 3 days. But both options are impossible to implement, in view of the degradation of the Russian Air Force.

    Let's start with the fact that in most cases we are not talking about a bomb created from scratch, but about modernized by installing a special module with drop-down wings on it.
    . It is worth recognizing the idea worth ...
    Of course, it will not be as high quality as ammunition specially designed for such purposes, but the issue of saving and improving the efficiency of conventional, already available ammunition matters in all respects.
    You have to do it yourself, that's a fact. There are a sufficient number of conventional bombs, and it is difficult to use them due to the enemy's air defense systems ...

    1) As already mentioned - how to build this economy? By satellite, by video image, by beam or something else?
    2) The aerodynamics of different bombs are different. Therefore, without a cardinal alteration, it is impossible to tear it off from one bomb and hang it on another. Well, if you only need to reconfigure the mass coefficients, air resistance and any geometry. And if the power of the actuators is not enough?

    The whole problem is not the presence of bombs, but intelligence data, you need to understand exactly where to shoot.
    and between the takeoff of the plane and the beginning of the drop, not to mention the fact of landing such a bomb, a lot of time will pass. 10 times faster with Tornado-S to defeat.

      Well, if there is no tornado, sir? Moreover, not always the installation can overcome a long distance to strike. But the plane is the very thing, and it can fly up where it needs to be faster. Thus, the efficiency of actions is decided. The ground unit can give coordinates. For example, according to the bunker or around the house where the enemy is sitting. It remains, as usual, the communication system, so that the ground unit would have a connection with the pilot (in order to know the time of arrival, well, transmit the coordinates). Such kits should have been available yesterday, although the planned bombs should have appeared the day before yesterday.

And in Russia, cast iron is even cheaper, and electronics are more expensive. So in 1997 it was worth it, but now the game is not worth the fry. Better new (by production) air-to-ground missile.

    The reason for the lack of such kits for conventional bombs in our army is the same as the lack of modern UAVs. The lack of foresight and incompetence of the command. At one time, it should have set tasks and demanded from the military-industrial complex the development and production of these weapons. But our hardened generals considered all this to be frivolous, worthless toys and pampering. Why do we need all this? We will crush any enemy with carpet bombardments with simple cast iron, shooting at squares and tank wedges. But for some reason it doesn't work now. The SVO showed that it is impossible to do without this weapon; it is needed today and now.

    Our aviation cannot fly up, well, the question is what have you been doing there since the 70s, that you didn’t prepare and update the parks with new equipment. Aviation does not work on the NMD as it should, so that they fly in a group bombed, the infantry goes on the offensive. Is that how it should be? These missiles are what they did, they do not reduce the population of ukrov at all. All the ammunition was spent with the time of the USSR, and the front stands still for a year, as it will be. There is no effect from one missile per day, massive strikes are needed on a certain sector of the front. These are the modules you need to ask Irn, equip 50 bombers and plow the field under bakhmut

    In fact, Messrs. Vanga predicted a war; now, in fact, there is a third world war, the collective West against Russia. One nation decided to nationalize everything, as they say, to force everyone to speak Ukrainian. Now they are depriving the Russian-speakers of their religion there. These barbarians turn out to be Bandera's henchmen. I thought that in 2014 Yanukovych had to disperse everything, he did not disperse, got the war. The question had to be resolved in 2014. The question is why do they think that they had such corruption, how did their corruption of 2013 differ from the corruption of 2015? Yes, nothing, just the media warmed up the people with topics about theft. In fact, some people were just given money. Another question is: is it possible to live without corruption at all? Take the USA tighter, isn't there corruption there, they fully support the companies that develop weapons. They develop viruses, on this their entire pharma industry is fed. In Ukraine at the time of 2014 there were not many oligarchs, but everyone was talking about corruption, these oligarchs of theirs did not disappear, after Yanukovych left, Poroshenko began to earn money. After Poroshenko, a clown came to power, who apparently got too into the role of the Great Commander, which sends thousands of Ukrainians to their deaths.
