Time to add those S designations

October 5, 2009 · Posted in AAW, Bombs · Comment 

Robert Hewson of Jane’s Defense has reported that Russia fielded their first series of satellite guided bombs during the Zapad 2009 Exercises which kind of confirms an article at Stratfor several months ago. The aircraft types seem to be the SU-24D M2 (picture above) and the TU-22M3 Backfire. Weapons types are unknown but guessing the guys at AU Airpower have a great list of candidates. Time to update those databases chumps.

BLU-108 Submunitions

While doing some research for one of our projects came across a great vid on how the BLU-108  works. These are currently employed on the CBU-97/CBU-105 series of sensor fused weapons (SFW) bombs and were used in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Pretty cool..less you’re under one.
