The “Telegram” channel of the “Voyennyj osvedomitel” magazine published photos of the destruction of an air munitions located at the site of a special military operation.
Experts believe that these images show the “Grom” complex – a modern air-guided bomb and missile complex. It was developed by the Tactical Missile Weapons Company, where Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu conducted a field visit on March 14.
The 9-A-7759 missile, the tests of which ended in 2018 and was designed on the basis of independent units, is interchangeable in each unit, which allows it to use 3 types of ammunition, the first is equipped with a combat warhead weighing 315 kg. Its effectiveness is 1.8 times greater than the effectiveness of the Russian “Ofab-250-270” bomb.
The second was a guided bomb with two charges weighing 480 kg. The bomb takes 260 seconds to fly and covers a distance of up to 65 km. The bomb is 1.5 times more effective than the Russian bomb OVAB-500.
The third bullet used in the “Grom” complex was also a bomb, but a thermobaric (thermal-pressurized) bullet weighing 370 kg. It is equipped with a laser sensor that allows determining the best height of the explosion. It is twice as effective as the Russian guided grenade Cap-500OD.
The Grom air complex can be launched from a height of 10 km. Su-34 bombers and MiG-35 multi-mission fighters can withstand it.
