India-Russia Bomb DEAL!

Posted [relativedate] at [relativetime time_format=”H:i”] 

In recent years, India has emerged as one of the largest buyers of defense equipment. The defense ministry last week announced that it would be buying 240 precision-guided bombs at a cost of Rs. 1254 crore from Russia’s Rosoboron export. These bombs are KAB-1500 laser guided and will be obtained for Sukhoi -30MKI fighter jets.

This procurement will address the deficiency of Precision Guided Munitions in the IAF arsenal, apart from enhancing the offensive capabilities of the IAF. Defense ministry also has plans to buy 131 Barak Missiles and other related equipment from Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems at a cost of Rs. 460 crore.

These bombs are designed to destroy ground targets such as railway lines, ammunition depots, bridges, military facilities, and ships. The bomb warhead weighs 1100 kgs. It has the feature of folding fins that allow it to manoeuvre while being guided to the target.

Unlike normal bombs, these can be guided by being dropper so that it can find the target exactly. These help to avoid risks of coming under direct contact with the enemy. The bombs can deviate from the vertical path to the target by as much as 5 miles allowing the aircraft to operate from distance.
