The Russians are saying a Fab-250 glide bomb will have a range of 80km.
How does this stuff work out in the real world even for the JDAM it's not like there aren't headwinds and all sorts of other environmental factors effecting range.
> will have a range of 80km.
Yes, it's possible if they release them from +10 km alt and 1000 km/h. Aka perfect targets for the S-300.
They probably exaggerate the range and precision, and it will be still affected by GPS/glonass jamming.
But since they're very hard to intercept, the answer to them it's to keep away the planes carrying them. Enter the ukrainian air force and the rumours about F-16s for them on top of their Mig-29s
>implying this orkish cobbled together shit will even work half as advertised

You pick a set of conditions that you consider a suitable baseline and calculate/measure based on that. Whether that's an absolute bets case scenario for advertising purpose, a worst case scenario so you know what you can at depend on getting or somewhere in between to be the most representative overall varies. And publicly released figures may of course also be complete nonsense while the real range is classified.
Russia has a very long history of putting out bullshit numbers that are somewhere theoretically correct but are never really practical or achievable. Just look up official armor stats of russian tanks, they are almost all just the theoretical maximum the whole armor has, meanwhile western tanks usually have a range that includes at least some weak spots.
tl;dr: Russia lies about as much as it says something, always ask yourself with what they are lying, never if.
Glide bombs are a legit weapon and the US also produces them. Their quality is much better, of course.
People keep posting that but you need to remember the game is under ideal circumstances. Real life there have been multiple cases of tanks missing the composite parts of their armour so it's basically non-functional.
This just means Russia is running out of missiles if they have to resort to such ridiculous contraptions.
>The Russians are saying
>The Russians are saying
Whoa, that is nearly twice the range of the Su-34 glide bomb.
Anon that alone is enough of a tell that they're bullshitting
Russia produces nothing only sadness.
Who the hell paints a bomb to look like it's being choked out in its rack and not staring strait at its intended victims?
fucking lmao. even drunk bubba in his shed lays down better beads than this
And no you know why their glide bombs failed to open and instead bombed Belgorod repeatedly.
They lost a bet?
Bomb flies as far as it flies, and Russians redefine kilometers so that the distance it flew is equal to 80 of them.
This is reasonable for a glide bomb. It's roughly equivalent to other tailkit glide-bombs like JDAM-ER, which is 72km. Significantly shorter than purpose-made glide bombs like JSOW. Overall, I think the rest of the people in this thread are kinda sperging out over a pretty reasonable claim.
and what about guidance?
CCRP from whatever cheap chinese computer they stuffed into the aircraft
If you yeet it off a MiG-31 going Mach 2 at 60.000 feet, maybe.
But somehow i doubt that DIY junk has the delayed wing deployment that would require.
That looks oddly similar to Kinzhals..
The unitary warhead in your pic is indeed from a Kinzhal.
It looks similar because it's somewhat based in the same design.
