B-1B bomber with amazing accuracy hit a moving small target

B-1B bomber with amazing accuracy hit a moving small target in the Gulf of Mexico, during the tests.


The main purpose of the tests was to prove the possibility of destruction of small-sized mobile surface targets driven aviation weapons.

Photographs transmitted by the US Air Force demonstrate phenomenal accuracy of hit with a GBU-10 guided aerial bomb with a laser-guided set. Also, about six rounds were used to destroy similar targets. Laser-guided XB-1 GBU-54 bombs from the B-225B dropped bombs, as well as Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) bombs of the 225 caliber.

The main task of the tests was to test the operation of the new software of the aircraft, targeting containers, as well as the development of tactics and methods for applying B-1B over the sea.

Currently, the US Air Force is developing several concepts for the use of the Lancer, including also the ability to support ground units from the air. The empowerment of the B-1B has been on the Air Force agenda since 1995, when the Lancer ceased to be carriers of strategic nuclear weapons.

Tests of the long-range anti-ship missile LRASM (Long Range Anti-Ship Missile) on board the B-1 bomber were also launched earlier. RCC tests are carried out without separation from the carrier by the 337 Air Force Test Squadron of the US Air Force, based on the Dies Air Force Base (Texas), and are aimed at expanding the functionality of B-1 and using it as a RCC carrier in oceanic theaters of operations. This was reported by the US Air Force.



"The new LRASM RCC is being developed by the DARPA Advanced Research Department (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense and the US Navy Research Department based on an extended-range air-to-surface missile launched at JASSM-ER joint air-to-surface stand-off missile, extended range), to replace the outdated Boeing’s Harpoon RCC. The need to create a new RCC is due to the fact that the missiles in the US Navy’s arsenal do not have sufficient flight range and are vulnerable when modern ship systems break through. Defense. LRASM program is designed to demonstrate the options of weapons that could quickly go into service the Navy after completion of flight tests in 2013-2014 years.

Thus, the bomber B-1B was able to support the combat formations of ships and airborne groups. The aircraft, due to its range and speed, can be used for quick and accurate strikes against floating bases of pirates and connections of enemy ships.

      Well, this is not an achievement! Now, if a moving maneuvering target was hit, then yes, this is an achievement. Although it is still just beginning.

        I don’t believe it, I watched the film about the first days of their war in Afghanistan, so there their bombers dropped their bombs on their own. Intelligence gives them the backlight and coordinates for GPS, and bombs fall on the heads of those same scouts.

          I agree with your opinion, after the interception of the ballistic targets, with the beacon placed in them, there is no faith in them (USA), although everything is possible, time does not stand still.

        The new software ensured the defeat of the target. Which was tested, not the old bomb.

        Yes, the target deviated by a hundred meters at its speed, the bomb would not have had the speed and time to maneuver.

        In these tests, on September 5, six types of UAB were dropped, and both Paveway and JDAM were thrown. Previously tested on land moving targets, also with excellent results. So I see no reason for steaminess, it is annoying to hear them from you ...

      If the target moved in a straight line, then yes, I believe in the hit - well done. And if it were maneuvering, then the rocket would simply not have enough speed to maneuver.

      It’s like their missile defense exercises, they know in advance the route of the blanks and pre-arrange frigates with anti-missiles on the route and shoot. There can be no talk of any maneuvering.

    "The aircraft, due to its range and speed, can be used to quickly and accurately strike pirate floating bases .."

    That's how everything is simply explained, probably the pirates armed themselves with chemical weapons, and how to not penetrate them with other weapons ... kind word and colt - loot and bombs.

    Any weapon on "trials" demonstrates phenomenal accuracy. But when it comes to hostilities, the probability of defeat instead of the stated 0,85-0,95 comes out 0,1. The manufacturer, as always, is making a fool (is it ???) of the receivers or, as always, has worked well system of cuts and kickbacks ???

          The bombing of Sebha warehouses in Libya on March 28, 2011.

          Those who wish can calculate and make sure that out of 40 protected reinforced concrete storages 38 are damaged or badly damaged, the thirty-ninth, despite a well-visible hole in the roof, looks otherwise intact (the bomb did not explode?), And the fortieth as if not damaged at all. In addition, ammunition was destroyed on open and bunded sites.

            So you say that our Air Force in the person of Tu-22M3 or even Su-34 cannot do the same? The goals are stationary, the coordinates are known, X-15 and KABs to help. So in terms of uniqueness - by.

    Photographs transmitted by the US Air Force demonstrate phenomenal accuracy in hitting a GBU-10 guided aerial bomb with a laser-guided kit.

    A bomb for 25 thousand dollars destroyed a boat for 1000 (or even less) dollars. This is not counting the cost of a bomb. Cool ... well done.

    And the goal was without a "beacon"? And then the Americans somehow "shot down" with their new missile defense system a ballistic missile, which turned out to be equipped with a driving beacon ...

      Bomb - ~ $ 25 thousand
      The boat, considering the engine and remote control, is hardly more than $ 1000.

        1. GBU-10 Paveway II costs 20 thousand dollars.
        2. Sea boat for less than 20-30 thousand dollars you will not find. River then even second-hand cost from 1,5 million rubles.

          What is the achievement? Strategic bomber hunts boats with expensive laser-guided bombs ?? Do you really think this is an achievement? Well, let's say this boat costs 20-23 thousand dollars. And the real goals will also be fiberglass and a motor for 100 horses? Yes, nonsense ...
          I would not be surprised if this boat went straight. For he is capable of laying such turns that they dodge a bomb or bring down guidance - like two fingers ...

          The B-1B is just a minor improvement over our Tu-160. I wonder what lump they thought of making him a regular tactical bomber? As well, ours are also good, the FABs hung on the Tu-22M, they also smoked the same strong grass.

              Why ... clear. Only all this WTO is applied where there is no normal air defense. Against the Chinese will not work. A bomber will be knocked down before he has time to fire a bomb. But it also needs to be pointed.

      It does not even reach 20 thousand dollars, and a sea boat costs more than 20 thousand dollars. The fact that they carried a boat during the tests does not mean that only weapons will be used on the boats ... Yes, and only a full nerd can be ironic about the cost of the target. How much does a cross painted on white land cost to which a Iskander rocket hits? And how much does the rocket itself cost?

        Iskander is designed to defeat particularly important and area targets. So it makes no sense to put cars or tanks under attack. The result is known.
        But such a fool with laser guidance ... and even dropped from a strategic bomber ... well ... the cannon on sparrows is resting.

    I think this is quite possible. If you capture the boat, for example, using an optical station that has a target auto-tracking mode and a laser illumination paired with it. Why not? But the teleautomat must be good, it is good to "hold" the target. Moreover, from a great height, the boat moves slowly, just creeps, for the tracking station to accompany it is not a problem.
