Russian aviation conducts precise bombardment with “stupid” bombs in Syria (Technet.cz, Czech Republic)

Exact bombardment can be conducted in two ways. The first is the use of "smart ammunition", which first attracted media attention during the "live broadcasts" from the Gulf War in 1991. In the current Syrian conflict, the Russian side has demonstrated another option - the clever use of "stupid" (hated) bombs.


Most of the air raids in the Syrian conflict are Russian aviation carries out with the involvement of front-line bombers Su-24M2 with variable geometry of the wing and fighter Su-25SM. These are modernized aircraft of fairly old types. Russian planes strike with the overwhelming majority of targets using hating bombs. Despite this, it seems that even with such a load, Russian aircraft are capable of hitting point targets with fairly high accuracy. To do this, use the complex deck Specialized computing subsystem SVP-24.

SVP-24 determines the exact place, or rather, it is better to say, the moment of automatic resetting of the “stupid” bomb so that it hits a certain target on the ground, falling as close as possible to it. The system takes into account exactly known positions of the target and the aircraft (data obtained from the satellite navigation system GLONASS), the speed and altitude of the aircraft and the angle of inclination of the aircraft, and also takes into account the data on the ballistics of a particular type of ammunition. In addition, hydrometeorological conditions (atmospheric pressure, wind, humidity) in the area, which vary with time and altitude, are taken into account. Of course, the accuracy of the system itself depends on the accuracy and sufficiency of the input data.
The information material of the manufacturer speaks about increasing the accuracy of an unguided bomb at a target eight times when using SVP-24 on Su-24M aircraft, so that the accuracy of using a “stupid” bomb supposedly approximates the use of a controlled bomb. Also, the aircraft can maneuver within certain limits, even when approaching the target, which, according to the same document, increases the pilot's chances of survival by 30-40% in the case of an active enemy air defense. As such figures were set, the material does not say.

Major General Igor Semchenko, in an interview with the Russian industry newspaper Military Industrial Courier, published on December 2, 2015, reports that with the SVP-24, the probability of hitting a small underground protected target (for example, a bunker) increases by 30-40%, and in the case of poorly protected medium-sized targets (warehouses, buildings, bridges) - by 60%. Therefore, one Su-24М with 12-16 "stupid" bombs can, according to Semchenko, for one sortie destroy up to two targets of the enemy’s infrastructure.

If you use all this information — although it can be recognized and unconfirmed — and add pictures from the Syrian airfield, from where the Su-24М2 rise into the sky, as a rule, with four “silly” 250-500 caliber bombs (although they may take small ones on board huge set), then all this can be considered as indirect evidence of the effectiveness of the system SVP-24.

History "Miracle"

Despite the fact that due to the participation of the Russian side in the conflict in Syria, even some Western media positively respond to the SVP-24, today this system has not fallen to the Middle East. In 1992, the company Hephaestus IT was established in Zhukovsky (Ramenskoye military aviation complex), which carried out orders of the Ministry of Defense for automated and information systems in the field of aviation. Soon the specialists of Hephaestus were assigned the task of developing an onboard computer system for upgrading the Su-24M.

So in 1996, the SVP-24, already known to us, was born (now it’s clear where the name 24 comes from). However, the path to modern operational use was long: the project was suspended several times and resumed. Because of competition with other projects, allegations of corruption were heard, in general, it was all the same as in other countries. In the first decade of the new millennium, the Su-24М2 with Hephaestus successfully passed the tests, after which an unknown number of aircraft put into service were equipped with the system.

After the modernization, which consisted primarily in the installation of the SVP, Sukhoi aircraft were designated Su-24М2. True, the 2 figure is often not indicated, and there is another difficulty: the Su-24М2 designates also the aircraft upgraded according to another program of NIREK, which, however, does not imply the computer equipment of such complexity and functionality as the Hephaestus system.

The SVP-24 itself consists of several components located on board the aircraft, and interacts with external ground, air and space systems, from which it receives the necessary data. That is, SVP-24 is one of the elements of the so-called digital battle and serves not only for targeting "stupid" bombs. The system has improved navigation and increased safety at low altitudes in automatic mode. It is also important that it was possible to even reduce, albeit slightly, the costs of operation and maintenance of avionics.

The potential of the new system contributed to the development of its modifications for use on other aircraft of old types. Today we know about the existence of, for example, SVP-24-22 for strategic bombers Tu-22, SVP-24-25 for fighters Su-25, SVP-24-27 for fighters-bombers MiG-27, and for training purposes was created SVP-24-39 for the still used Aero L-39 Albatros.

Russian bombs used in Syria

On the photos of Russian aircraft in Syria, you can see several types of bombs hated. As already mentioned, the Su-24М2 and Su-25CM airplanes are primarily used to drop them onto targets. Both types are equipped with the SVP-24 system. The third type of aircraft equipped with this system is the Tu-22М3М long-range bomber (Tu-22М3 - after modernization). These bombers were used in strategic aviation operations when the Tu-22M3M, Tu-95MS and Tu-160 flew out of air bases in Russia. And if Tu-95MS and Tu-160 did not appear in the sky over the territory of Syria, but hit the targets with cruise missiles, then the compartments of Tu-22M3M were filled with “small” high-explosive high-explosive bombs OFAB-250-270, which became the part of the landfill bomb bombs OFAB-XNUMX-XNUMX, which became the fraction of the high-explosive air bombs OFAB-XNUMX-XNUMX, which became the fraction of the high-explosive air bombs OFAB-XNUMX-XNUMX, which became the fraction of the high-explosive air bombs OFAB-XNUMX-XNUMX, which became the fraction of the high-explosive air bombs OFAB-XNUMX-XNUMX, which was used by the coastal bombers. Islamic State militants under the Dair Alzour.

It should be noted that OFAB-250-270 weighing 266 kilograms comes across most often in photos. Other types of bombs used by Russian aviation in Syria include high-explosive bombs FAB-250 and FAB-500, as well as concrete-breaking BETAB-500 and cluster RBC-250.

In addition to the bombs, the bombs are still used, albeit in smaller quantities, by smart bombs. For example, the most modern KAB-500С with satellite guidance, which are dropped by Su-34 bombers. To complete the picture, we can also mention the use of air-to-ground guided missiles and missile blocks with unguided rockets. However, all this is no longer relevant to the topic of "stupid" bombs dropped by SVP-24.

Distribution of medals


The Austrian edition of Contra Magazin writes: “If NATO, above all, the United States, invests in weapon and systems of total observation, Russia uses its technological ingenuity to minimize costs. ”

But not everything is so simple. One should not imagine that the use of systems like SVP-24 will completely replace the "smart" bombs. Evaluating the value of SVP-24, we must not forget that the calculation for dropping bombs is not the only function of the system, as mentioned above.

But when compared with the “competitive” methods for solving the exact bombardment problem, we better see the advantages and disadvantages of the system. Yes, “cheap” standard ammunition is used, without the involvement of complex kits (such as American JDAM), so that the costs of ammunition do not increase, and no extra careful handling is required.

But the drawback seems to be the inability to influence the trajectory of the bomb after dropping from an airplane. On the other hand, there is no threat of signal loss, which, for example, can occur due to clouds, smoke or dust in the case of armaments that are induced by a laser. This implies the impossibility of using SVP-24 against moving targets, although one should not understand it as a dogma (an example is a moving column, etc.).

“The smartest” weapons in principle should be more accurate than a “stupid” bomb using SVP-24, in which case the accuracy is determined by the sufficiency and correctness of the input data.

        Good morning. A pleasant story, in my opinion, about the "secret operation" of Kadyrov's special forces in Syria:

          From the text
          when compared with "competitive" methods for solving the problem of precision bombing
          “cheap” standard ammunition is used, without involving complex kits (such as the American JDAM), so that the cost of ammunition is not increased, and especially careful handling is not required.

          T.O., an interesting pattern comes to light.
          The Americans didn’t just howl in such a way that the Russian aerospace forces allegedly bombing inaccurately, falling into civilian facilities. And it was not just that the American and French media issued video footage of the Russian Ministry of Defense for the most accurate air strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces for air strikes by US and French pilots in the context of allegedly using the “stupid” bombs in Syria instead of the “smart” US bombs. All this is a vile marketing move by the arms sellers of the United States and France, which is caused precisely by the strengthening of the competitive positions of the Russian Federation regarding the positions of the United States, France and other NATO countries in the global ammunition market.
          In other words, losing the country in the race and the quality of arms directly affects the false statements and actions of politicians of the losing side.

              I thought about that too. But, probably, they did it right. HAD to do this - and because of the recent religious demonstrations of the Salafists in Dagestan. Strengthening Salafism in Dagestan is the path to building a Salafi state in it - i.e. “Islamic State” (IS / Daesh) - within the Russian Federation itself. Moreover, the Russians had this experience in Chechnya under the self-proclaimed head of Ichkeria Dudaev and ended in two civil wars of the 1995 and 1998 years. Ethnic cleansing of only the Russian and Russian-speaking population in Chechnya reached only 2010% of the 80 year according to official figures on 1991 year.
              Kadyrov spoke correctly and, it must be said, warned the “Salafists” of Dagestan in a timely manner.

          Ksayemo Mr. Kadyrov, I repeat my comment in the post "law and order":

          “They did a good job on Kadyrov’s media image.
          A kind of patriot of Russia from the Caucasus, the support of the state, etc.
          My personal opinion: Kadyrov, if the central authority is weakened, can become a headache for the entire state. Now he is devoted (not to the country, not to the people of the Russian Federation, but personally to the GDP and a certain part of the republic), what will happen tomorrow?
          The region is not economically transparent, law enforcement agencies are apparently little controlled by the center (I think there will be problems replacing the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the republic or the head of the Main Department of Internal Affairs of Grozny). The republic is militarized. Special units undergo training according to the standards of special aircraft. destination of the Russian Federation.
          Bad feeling. I hope, of course, that these are my silly fantasies and speculations. "

        Seriously, NATO, at the suggestion of the United States, has long blurred the line between a fighter and an attack aircraft, and often a front-line bomber. This is our specialization with the resulting classification, "in the same place" - universalism, with an apogee in the form of an absurd F-35

      In the first decade of the new millennium Su-24M2 with Hephaestus tests were successfully completed, after which the system was equipped with an unknown number of aircraft put into service.

      The Su-24M2 modification is not used in the ATS. In 2009, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation decided to finally abandon the modernization of the remaining Su-24Ms according to the Su-24M2 version proposed by OJSC Sukhoi (ROC Gusar) and chose the modernization according to the version from ZAO Gefest and T (ROC Metronom) ... These aircraft are designated as Su-24M Hephaestus. The visually modernized Su-24M differs from the earlier machines mainly in this (photo).

    For me it’s good both of these .... with a sledgehammer you can disperse the crowd ... with a scalpel to bleed (figuratively speaking).
    For accumulations of equipment and manpower and stationary objects, it is cheaper and more efficient to use unguided bombs, for targeted targets, controlled bombs (which will be much more expensive) and you won’t be able to use them in droves.
    The author is clearly a layman in military affairs and the article is full of mistakes ... there may be an inaccurate translation.

    The “smartest” weapon in principle should be more accurate than the “silly” bomb using SVP-24,
    Meanwhile, on February 10, American attack aircraft bombed Aleppo, Syria with "their high-precision weapons", destroyed several buildings there and blamed the Russian Aerospace Forces for this. One small misfortune, our people did not approach Aleppo closer than 20 km that day.

      An-2 comes in for a landing, the pilot reports as expected, but one phrase is missing in the report - about the release of the chassis.
      RP is immediately broadcast:
      - Report on the release of the chassis!
      Pilot:
      - The chassis was released and bolted to 48 in 1956! ... laughing

    the economy in military affairs, too, has not been canceled, as in everything there must be a certain balance between the "reasonableness" of the ammunition and its cost, otherwise its "reasonableness", or rather its cost, will eat up all its expediency for a specific purpose (for example, the creation of a Yankee aircraft F -35, the plane is a toy, its cost, and in general its combat mission completely overlaps the military-strategic value of most targets (after all, the Yankees in the war in Iraq and Syria do not use their Raptors, the costs are too high, it is cheaper to launch the A-10 link on the target), and war, even using conventional ammunition, is far from being a cheap pleasure, and so far Russia has found a rational way to solve the voiced problem with the help of SVP-24, which certainly pleases ...

    The result is always important, no matter with the help of what and how! Even with the help of sticks and stones! Why do we need "smart" ammunition if, after being used by America and its ridiculous coalition, the bearded hermits both ran and run on? And now they are like cowardly cockroaches running with bulging eyes!

    Czechs need to be reminded that in the 1968 year, the armed forces of the Warsaw Pact countries entered Czechoslovakia when the government of this country wanted to sell the land to Americans for launching sites for missiles and military bases. They entered and definitely did their job, eliminating the stupid Czechoslovak elite of the corrupt rulers. Under Gorbachev, they, alas, finally managed to sell Czech land. But the Syrians did not want to lick the ass of the Americans and quietly die out for a beer and mineral water. DO NOT WANT THIS Syrians. Czechs, you hear that there are still people in the world who hold dear honor and homeland, unlike you!

    I recall that in the fall of 88, in Bagram our Su 17 m4r worked as a “navigational bombing” at a spiritual post. The target on the side of the mountain, small - two spirits and a machine gun. They determined the coordinates of the target, entered them into the computer, hung up a hundred and Allah Akbar. The plane itself hit the target, “aimed” and threw a bomb from the horizon. The center of the funnel from the target is ten meters. These spirits, now it doesn’t matter which bomb was stupid or smart. The accuracy is high, you can work in any weather, day or night, without visual observation of the target. And these storytellers from behind the hillock have nothing to listen to.

    One JDAM makes only one bomb smart. One SVP-24 makes all bombs dropped from an aircraft "smart". The bourgeois do not like it. Navara capitalists, it will not be enough.

Good luck to pilots of the Russian Aerospace Forces and, most importantly, without losses, keep it up!

    Who has stupid heads, that one has smart bombs. Those who have smart heads, those who have stupid bombs. Otherwise, how can we explain that smart bombs get to wedding, funeral processions and doctors' hospitals without borders, while stupid ones get to fuel trucks and control points. There is something to think about by British scientists.

    And in this region everything is based on personal relationships, otherwise it will not work. Remember the "Wild Division" in the Russian Empire after the end of the Caucasian War? Shamil did not vilify, although he surrendered, he was a worthy opponent of the Russian troops, and there was also a personal agreement with Alexander II. And without this, it is not known how much more blood would flow.
