Russian Aerospace Forces Began Using ‘Grom’ Guided Stand-Off Munitions Against Kiev Forces (Video)

The Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) have begun to use a new type of precision-guided, stand-off munitions against Kiev forces.

On March 12, Ukrainian sources shared footage showing the remains of the munition, known as the Grom, near an unspecified front. The Grom is a derivative from the Kh-38M air-to-ground missile, which was developed by Russia’s Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV).

KTRV developed two versions of the Grom. The first version, the Grom-1 tactical cruise missile, retains the rocket engine and adds on a set of wings to achieve a range of up to 120 kilometers, three times that of the original Kh-38M. This Grom-1 maintains the 250 kg warhead of the base missile.

The second version, the Grom-2 glide bomb, adds a set of wings, maintains the original 250 kg warhead and replaces the rocket engine with a secondary warhead that weighs 165 kg. The Grom-2 has a range of up to 50 kilometers.

Both versions utilize an inertial navigation system and can be equipped with an additional GLONASS receiver. For terminal guidance, a semi-active laser, active radar homing or imaging infrared seeker can be installed to achieve pinpoint accuracy.

The Grom can be employed from all types of Russian fighter jets, including Su-34 fighter bombers and Su-35 multirole fighters.

The long range, modern guidance system and fairly heavy warhead of the Grom will allow VKS fighter jets to engage high-value Ukrainian targets, like fortified positions, air defense systems and gatherings of manpower and equipment, from a safe distance with high accuracy.

Pls advice where these NATO centres are in Ukraine? So you just pulled something out of your arse and got 39 votes??

Romanian yankee whore

There are many but of course they not give every idiot nazi theirs locations. Russians know them very well, but usually they are deep into the rear, generally at 30-40 km. With that gliding denazification torpedo with 50 km range russians finally solve that old issue. One of them is located in Konstantinovks for example, retard mommy fucker. Stay put here motha fucker danish faggot, one of the next SF news will be such event.

There’s a rumor that one of 5-6 hyper-sonic “Daggers” was used few days ago right on command center with foreign high officers. They were attacked previously in Nikolaev city when gathered in hotel and in marine base at Berdyansk before it was liberated – 10-15 british officers were there before the attack. So they are dying from time to time too as Ladimir Elenskiy promised.

A big bang for the Ukros spring offensive party and an answer to the JDAM-ER that could change tactics somewhat.

We have not even started yet to defend our Slavic brothers in Donbass. We are still testing new military inventions.

Rome was not build in one day. What we cant do today, can wait until tomorrow. All we wanted and want is to be equal partners in equality with AstraSeneca, Pfizer and Moderna.

Rusko predviedlo prehnitému západu niečo nové zo svojich skladov. Teraz si môžu debili na západe lámať hlavičku, koľko asi tak toho tí Rusi majú? A hlavne v akých modifikáciach?
