U.S. Is Considering Supplying Ukraine With Rocket-Propelled Bombs That Can Hit Russia’s Crimea

The Pentagon is considering a proposal by Boeing to supply Ukraine with rocket-propelled precision-guided bombs that would allow Kiev forces to strike far behind Russian lines, Reuters reported on November 28.

Sources in the United States military industrial complex told the news agency that Boeing’s proposed system, dubbed Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB), is one of about a half-dozen plans for getting new munitions into production for Ukraine and Washington’s allies in East Europe.

The GLSDB, which was developed by Boeing and Sweden’s Saab, combines the GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) with the M26 rocket motor.

The 129-kilogram SDB is guided by a GPS-aided inertial navigation system. The gild bomb can hit targets 150 kilometers away when launched by the M26 rocket motor as a part of the GLSDB system.

Unlike traditional artillery weapons, the GLSDB offers 360-degree coverage for high and low angles of attack, flying around terrain to hit targets on the back of mountains, or circling back around to a target behind the launch vehicle.

The system non-ballistic trajectory makes its more flexible, but its low speed means that it will be more exposed to air defense fire.

Kiev forces will be able to launch the GLSDB from its newly-acquired M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) and M270 Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS).

Both the SDB and the M26 are common in the US arsenal. The system could be delivered to Kiev forces by early 2023 using surplus bombs from the conflict in Afghanistan.

Although the United States has rebuffed Ukraine’s requests for the ATACMS tactical missile that has a range of 297 kilometers, the GLSDB’s 150 kilometer range would allow Ukraine to hit valuable Russian targets. From the outskirts of the city of Kherson, the system can reach military positions, key facilities and urban centers in the Crimean Peninsula.

Supplying Ukraine with the GLSDB system would be a major escalation on the part of the U.S. Russia will likely respond in a way or another.

What else can Russia do after destroying Ukraine’s electricity? Water is pumped by electricity. With the support Zelensky is getting, Russia is in for a long haul.

Eugeddon can never afford to rebuild ukraine,they are all run by parasitical bludgers without a clue about the real value of energy and this is why there will be a massive revolt to eugeddon dumbass!

jmNZ

With the US Congress adding $45billion to their military budget and dramatically expanding training of Ukrainian soldiers, the situation resembles the Ukraine´s preparations to invade the Donbass back in February. Further, there are calls from NATO to allow the Ukraine to directly strike into Russian territory proper. Unless the Russians quickly start their blitzkrieg to reduce what´s left of neo-Nazi Ukraine, they may be faced with a much stronger, more aggressive NATO & reckless USA. Better to expunge these maggots now before they turn into flies . . .

Another imaginary Wunderwaffe? It is all fake gesturing. They are desperate. Nobody gives a fuck about NATO.

They want to force the hand of Russia to move on Ukropizdan earlier than they are prepared. It did not work with Kerch bridge. It did not work with Sevastopol drone attacks. It did not work with bottle rockets blowing up babushka’s hen pens in Belgorod. It will not work now.

US Mercinary industry is not capable of creating any quality weapons, because they have only hicks, niggers and rednecks as engineers. Good luck with black-swanning duct-tape inventions 😆

Why does Russia keep complaining about NATO if it doesn’t care?

Are you saying Russia isn’t yet prepared to go full throttle on Ukraine after 10 months of war?

Seems you admit Russia is looking for an out.

If America’s weapons are so bad, why is Putin complaining about weapons aid to Ukraine?

N.N.

Not true. They also have a large number of Jews and German engineers – mostly people who ran from Germany due to lack of opportunity, or for eg. religious reasons (ie, Christian fundamentalists). And they did some good engineering, as you can see in many instances. Just claiming that they can’t do it, then be complacent, is the way straight to doom.

zman

It looks like standard mission creep to me. It seems they are intent on trying degrade Russia’s AD, by getting them to use their stock. I doubt this would work, as the west is quickly using their stock. They would have to have a huge reserve to mount an attack on Russia. Russia, it seems, is able to produce enough to keep up with demand, but for how long is the west’s question. To prevent a successful attack on Crimea and elsewhere, they would have to strengthen their defense, likely using more AD missiles. This likely is the west’s only hope to be able to bring Russia down. Never happen. It’s doubtful Iran or China would stand idly by as well. No doubt the US has had this thought as well, hence the US/Israeli training to attack Iran that began recently. No doubt Iran has had the same thoughts as well, hence the attacks on the Kurds, another Zionist proxy.

Great. Judgement day for Russian forces who commited so many war crimes in Syria.

Putin is fight both the West and Muslim world simultaneously. He kills thousands of Muslims in Syria (civilians in particular), helped Haftar to the same in Libya, and fights Ukraine + the West. What a smart leader he is.

I hope this Ukraine war lasts for years until Russia is completely exhausted. This reduces their threat to the Muslim world. And if Putin takes Erdogan’s generosity for granted and threatens Turkey via the PKK, it’d be just too bad for the russian military when game-changing Turkish weapons start to surface on Ukrainian battlefields.

This will not happen even with the crime boss in the White House. This is purely something the British are putting out there simply to provoke Putin; even though the Brits would love to see it happen to escalate to nuclear war. What do you want, perpetual war and nuclear extinction or do you want peace with development?

Russia is looking for a face-saving way out. LOL. Biden wants to teach Putin a lesson before providing a bitter but sugar-coated exit for the Ruskies. Just hope the exit doesn’t come before an economic and political crisis in the Kremlin.

Cromwell

So thats why Putin told loco Joe to fuck off after loco joe said he wanted talks,there is nothing to talk about.

Anyone

The GLSDB is actually a hard target to intercept. Once the SDB separates from the M26 it’s a cold target with non ballistic trajectory. Cold targets are harder to track and SDB is cold, small, composite and has an non ballistic trajectory which all makes it harder to defend against. I’m not saying it can’t be done but it’s harder, i also think they would use GLSDB to target Russian air-defenses with coordinates provided by NATO.

The Objective

Isn’t Putin a very smart leader? God! I still can’t understand what Russia hopes to achieve from this war. There’s no sign of victory whatsoever even with a nationwide mobilization. The U.S will continue to up the ante the harder Russia tries to subdue Ukraine. Putin will destroy the Russian military over Ukraine when Russia has stronger enemies elsewhere

kotromanic

Putin has done what he could. He was just able to push the frontline a bit further into ukraine then it would have been if he would have waited for ukraine to strike first. They have been armed and preparing for the war against russia for many years. Russia is not prepared its entire military industry was distributed between all sowjet nations in the past and under jelzin the parts in russia have been destroyed systematically. Putin had just started to rebuild when the us begin to push them in georgia and then ukraine. Chine could help but they will probably just look who pays better and sell their stuff to the highest bidder.

This war will not end until one side us or russia has fallen. It was created by the us to finish of russia and they will not stop trying.

Ed Theman

Russia should target the GPS satellites as an escalation. Ukraine would be in a much worse situation if they didn’t have the GPS satellites. Their HIMARS would not function.

Also start to knock out the starlink.

Yes, USA would then target Russian GPS satellites but Russia has a lot of unconventional weapons.

Medved

It’s easier and more sneaky to just jam the satellites. The inverse square law prevails. For example if the satellite and jammer are of equal transmitter powers but the jammer is 1/100th of the distance, then it’s signal is ten thousand times stronger (100 x 100) at the missile.

Shit country makes shit military

Russia has no chance to win this war. Putin already hanging on ropes.

Don’t forget that Ukraine still hasn’t laid hands on the badass missiles that will obliterate large chunks of Russian forces. Just hope that the U.S let Russia off the hook before a major crisis breaks out in Russia over this war.

I don’t think that would be wise and no Ukraine doesn’t need it. So many cheered when the Kerch Bridge (Crimea) was attacked but non of those cheers the attack on the electricity and other infrastructure that is the punishment for that attack. And no one in their right mind that has sympathies with Ukraine should ever wish for an attack on Moscow since it would be really devastating for Ukraine. There is a reason that the west don’t want Ukraine to be able to do it since they understand the consequences and how everything would change.

Russia doesn’t have the ability to take Kiyev provided Ukraine continues to receive aid. Putin is looking for a face-saving way out of Ukraine. Even Russia’s supporters on this forum secretly wish for the war to end honorably regardless of whether Russia achieves its objectives or not. Putin ran into a quagmire with his eyes wide open.

Ukraine doesn’t need to attack Moscow to bleed Russia. All the U.S has to do is provide arms that can reach every point in Ukraine and cremia. All Zelenzky need is kill a prohibitively large number of Russian troops on Ukrainian soil and wait for a backlash against Putin in Russia. This backlash will come if the war continues for another year with large Russian deaths.

kotromanic

The reason why the us will not give those weapons to ukraine is the same why they stopped the croats short of banja luka.

The world would have seen that their allies are the monsters they are trying to paint their enemys are. They kill everything on sight and they are so proud of it that they would show the world. Even the influence of the us would not be big enough to prevent those pictures.

The western media is writing every day that russia is trying to kill as many ukainians as possible but are just incompetent. But they know that if they would make the ukrainians competent they would do the same they did in ww2. Avoid military fights and just concentrate to kill as many civilians as possible.

Russia and the US are fighting a war for hegemony. The Ukrainians are fighting war to ethnic cleanse the eastern slavic territories of everything that bandera would not approve.

Crazycanuck

The Kremlin needs to be brought down sooner of later , and Putin will use nukes sooner or later so let’s get this done . Russia will never leave it’s neighbours alone . It’s time gang up on the bully .

The Objective

An entertaining war though I pity Ukraine. Wish it were Russia and China fighting. It could be the right time to target CSTO with clindestine operations to further stretch Russian forces. LOL. I used to like Russia until I discovered the large number of people they killed in Syria. No “true” Sunni Muslim would love Russia if they knew what the Russian military did in Syria. Indescriminate carpet bombing. Too many civilian deaths. Widespread destruction of infrastructure and homes allover Syria. How will Allah not pushin Russia? Ukraine is that punishment, and I pray it lasts for years.

Russians would have not been there if your sunni muslims did not want to murder everything that is not like them. The syrians would have not asked russia for help if the gulf countries would have not created and funded multiple armys of mordor orcs to kill and pillage everything.

You can just be lucky russia is not like you. They could fund the kurds to kill turks. The yemenites to kill saudis. The shiites in iraq to kill sunites and so on. They are not even trying while saudis and turks are trying everywhere to push muslims to kill others be it the middle east, the balcans, the caucasus or even chinese xinjang.

Ghost of Moscow

I love the last sentence in this article, that Russia will respond in one way or another: Yeah I wouldn’t count on it! Why do you think NATO keeps sending weapons to Ukraine, because they know Russia is to P***sy to do anything about it!

The United-States blew up a Multi-million dollar Pipeline of Russia that will take at-least a decade to re-build did Russia respond NO! NATO intelligence help blow up the Crimean Bridge did Russia respond NO! NATO & Ukrainian Intelligence planted a car bomb that killed Dara Dugina on Russian Territory but did Russia respond NO!

And I can keep going on and on, the United-States knows they can do whatever they want and the Russians won’t respond because they are scared of entering into a War with NATO, how Russia has behaved this entire War has been absolute PATHETIC I can’t believe I actually thought they was going to win!
