    LS PGM (precision guided munitions) is a Chinese made kit that convert an unguided bomb into a precision guided bomb. Even Syria can make these kits. These kits can be fit on the unguided bombs and on unguided rockets to convert them to guided bombs and guided missiles.

    Russia also use smart bombs called KAB in which guidance system is integrated. But Russia also use unguided bombs for which they use a computer called SVP-24 in the fighter jet. For this the computer guide the pilot to bring the fighter jet to a specific point to release the bomb. If the pilot miss the point then computer will not release the bomb. Second for SVP-24 the fighter jet should be close to the target for precise target 3000 to 5000 meters. Therefore, with this system the fighter jets are targeted by MANPADs.

    While with LS PGM or JDAM kits your fighter jet does not need to be precisely on a particular point to release the bomb. You can target any point precisely even from 100 km altitude.

    JDAM is a US made kit to convert an unguided bomb into a guided bomb.

      How can the SAA counter the use of ATGM’s? Is there a technical system?

        Syrian defence industries have already developed a very effective anti ATGM Systems which is called SARAB-3 APS.

        • Jim Prendergast

          I was wondering about countering the ATGM’s supplied by Turkey to the terrorists. You may recall that Turkey supplied ATGM’s to Albanian terrorists who destroyed Armenian tanks in Nagorno-Karabakh. What can the SAA do to counter this problem?

          • Rob

            Instead of complaining its better to go to better option which is to use SARAB-3 everywhere, where Syrian army needs. This SARAB-3 will give active protection against ATGMs.

            not completely useless. all countermeasures are not 100% successful. the success rate of this might be 50%
