Ukraine has mastered the production of practical air bombs

Ukraine has mastered the production of practical aerial bombs for training the air force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Transmitted by the  National Industrial Portal  with reference to the  Military .

The production of practical aerial bombs was mastered by the specialists of PJSC “Ramsay”, who offered their version of solving the needs of the Air Force with such training equipment for the air  force ,  ArmyInform writes .

“Practical bombs of their production are many times cheaper than foreign counterparts. At the same time, the flight trajectory is the same as that of a combat bomb, ”said Vasyl Zahainov, Deputy Technical Director of Ramzai PJSC.

At the same time during the application the pilot does not feel the difference between a normal and a practical bomb. They are identical in principle of application: they fly on the same trajectory and hit the target. With the difference that instead of a real detonation in the city of defeat, the “analogue” forms a cloud of smoke at the point of fall, which mimics the detonation of a bomb.

“In accordance with the tactical and technical task provided by the specialists of the Central Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, we developed design documentation, designed and quickly mastered the process of production of practical aircraft bombs,” said Vasyl Zagainov.

The company claims that they have already mastered the production of a complete aerodynamic analogue of the OFAB-250 bomb (high-explosive aircraft bomb).

As of today, the practical bomb has passed the stage of factory tests, ahead of the state ones, based on the results of which a decision will be made on its adoption. PJSC “Ramsay” hopes that this will happen by the end of this year.

Also, a family of small-caliber bombs was made on the basis of a practical bomb. In addition, it was decided to develop a new electronic detonator for them. After all, as it turned out, the one used now is more expensive than making the bomb itself.

Various options of equipment are being worked out, which will determine the type of ammunition: incendiary, high-explosive fragmentation or thermobaric.

The long-term plans include the creation of an adjusted air bomb for use with UAVs. This ammunition will include technical characteristics that will allow its use from a height of 10 km. According to preliminary estimates, the accuracy of the bomb will fluctuate within 6 meters.
