Amenaza creciente de las bombas planeadoras rusas en Ucrania

August 30, 2023 - El despliegue extensivo de bombas planeadoras rusas de baja tecnología en el conflicto actual con Ucrania se ha convertido en una gran preocupación para las fuerzas ucranianas.

Early this year, Russia introduced guided bombs — essentially, the regular gravity bombs modified to be dropped by multirole fighter-bombers from safe distances and deal precise and very damaging strikes in front-line areas and beyond.

Along with the specifically designed sophisticated smart munitions, Russia has been using the modified version of simple 500kg air bombs that it has in vast numbers.

It poses an especially serious threat to Ukraine. By turning simple bombs into guided ones, Russia is unfolding a tactical weapon that is much cheaper, more massive, and more effective than cruise and ballistic missiles, the stockpile of which is largely depleted now, according to the Kyiv Independent.
