    wtf is the point is such huge bombs unless your goal is to just devastate all infrastructure and kill as many civilians as possible? modern warfare is about information and precision then a drone can go at fart out a little grenade on the soldier's head
    considering ukraine doesn't even make its own arms blowing everything up would just piss off the international community even more

              Waaaait I finally know why this clip gets posted all the time — you think the planes were aiming at the large warehouse-type structure! Haha bro hate to break this to you but the target is obviously the narrow wooded strip between the road and the building complex. That’s where an enemy unit would be entrenched to ambush the road / overwatch the field. So, the first plane hit and near-missed, the second plane did miss wildly, probably because the pilot was panicked over being shot at (popping flares). The third plane (which we don’t see, maybe higher-altitude?) seems to make direct hits and near misses. I don’t know if any of them hit a trench square-on but it seems to be a decent degree of accuracy (except the flare-popping plane) and it certainly wouldn’t be worth making it into a meme about accuracy. So you just pretend a large unrelated structure nearby is the target, then it becomes meme-worthy lol.

                The wooded strip between the building complex and road which is probably where troops were entrenched to overlook the field and / or ambush the road. It’s plainly obvious the target. Only the second plane missed wildly, maybe because he was panicking (popping flares) or maybe the smoke messed up his perception of the aim-point etc. Two of the three planes hit or near-missed and seems reasonably accurate. Did /k/ REALKY turn this clip into a meme over Russian accuracy because 1 out of 3 drops missed badly? No. They did it because it was fun to pretend that an unrelated building in a pristine / untouched building complex was the actual target because then it would be meme-worthy. Did NONE of you engage your brains when watching this clip? Did none of you secretly think "yeah it’s probably a trench line by the road but it’s more fun to pretend otherwise"?

        Multiple smaller explosions over an area provide significantly more optimal lethality than a single large explosion which is why cluster munitions exist
        The only practical use case for a bomb this large is as a specialised demolition tool for knocking down really big structures

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Cluster bombs are predominantly anti-tank weapons, and at least in the USAF have only waned in popularity since the AGM-65 rendered the Rockeye obsolete overnight. There isn't much of a point to them when their reason for existing (bombs being to inaccurate to reliably destroy heavy armor) ceased to exist[1].

          Bigger bombs are still useful as specialized tools for cracking fortifications, heavy rail bridges, hardened bunkers, etc. The only reason you don't see them very often is that they require either uncontested airspace or a penetrating bomber to deploy as only which only one country on earth is capable of doing the latter (though I would argue a transonic backfire at treetop level would qualify), most countries have decided that shoving an ultra-heavy bomb out of a C-130's cargo bay is a waste of procurement given a Mk.84 can fit on an F-16A and do 99% of the same jobs with way less risk and logistical burden.

          tl;dr They're still useful in niche roles, their decline has more to do with falling defense budgets than anything else.

            Cluster bombs were used on a massive scale by US in Vietnam precisely because they are much more efficient at covering an area than a big blast.

            Only shaped charge bomblets that were developed at a later date are intended against armor.

        But it doesn't do anything. Terror bombing is a dead end idea if your goal is to win. Yeah, you killed some people and knocked out power for a double digit number of minutes, but uhhhh, you didn't kill any of the people shooting back and didn't knock out their power because they're not relying on the civilian grid. Meanwhile, they're shooting at your actual military targets and reducing your ability to fight.

          It's even worse than that because it's the most effective propaganda you could possibly give the other side. If you're bombing civilian targets then you're absolutely going to drive them to arms and moreover to utterly hate you which will make occupation impossible and make them fight and work harder while sacrificing more. Unless your end goal is to flatten the place and genocide everyone then they are only really useful for hitting large strategic targets like power plants, bridges, or whatever.

    Russia doesn't operate aircraft that carry FAB-9000 any more. FAB-9000 was to be carried by Tu-16 "Badger" not any of Russia's modern strategic bombers
    Tu-95MS and T-160 have a rotary bomb-bay system to launch cruise missiles, not free-fall bombs

    The old Tu-22M3 can carry free-fall bombs but AFAIK the largest ones it carries are FAB-3000 (pic related). IIRC FAB-3000s were dropped on Azovstal

    To deploy FAB-9000 they'd have to dump it out the back of an Il-76

      Its carriers were Tu-95, TU-16, TU-22, 3M and M4 bombers. From the currently available only Tu-95MS and Tu-160 can theoretically carry such aerial bombs, but practically not. The Tu-95MS is called a platform, according to its instructions, and can only use cruise missiles suspended on an internal suspension. For other purposes, it is not intended. The Tu-160 can carry all types of bombs, but it is a strategic bomber. Thus, the Tu-95 and Tu-160 are adapted for rockets, and there are no carriers left in this formation.

      You could maybe bodge a FAB-9000 onto a Tu-95 to gravity drop it, but the chances of that mission being successful under patriot fire are going to be somewhat remote.

      They're high drag bombs, they have more aerodynamic fab's.
      >why are russian bombs ribbed like that
      Because they have integral tails, NATO bombs have a lot of high drag tails options.

    I don't think the SU-34s has any way of carrying FAB5000s, let alone 9000s.

    It could perhaps carry a single 5000 in the centerline but then its doubtful it can mount anything else, and it can already lurch 3 1500s so it's not much an upgrade compared to that and adds hellofa lot more metal fatigue.

    They would need an actual bomber to carry those.

      Nevermind, I forgot about the extra weight the kit introduces which already probihits 34s from carrying more than two 1500s.

    I'm pretty sure they used a Tu-22M to drop a FAB-3000 on the cum pits of Azovstal with little effect.

    That was the first time a Backfire entered Ukrainian territory and dropped an actual bomb not a missile. Given all the A-50s dropping like flies and the F-16s arriving its going to be the only time a Tu-22M has dropped a bomb in anger in this war.

    The damage of an explosion doesn’t scale linearly with size. The general rule of thumb is that the radius for a given amount of damage scales with the cube root of the weight of the explosive charge. This means that trying to destroy a larger area by just making bigger bombs has sharply diminishing returns. It’s much more efficient to drop multiple smaller bombs, particularly on soft targets like trucks and troops in the open. Taking this to its logical conclusion, the best way to destroy a soft area target is to drop dozens or hundreds of small bomblets on it. The easiest way to do this is to package a cluster of bomblets into something that can be handled and used more or less like a normal bomb. Almost like we gave them a name like 'cluster bombs' or something.

    Only fricking Russia thinks slapping 4200kg of explosive into a bomb makes logical sense. However, the FAB-9000 was made in the 50's, so it's one of those 'Oh yeah' situations. Also, not entirely sure what aircraft is going to be carrying a 9000kg bomb and dropping it.

      Oh I should clarify before somebody says, while I said it makes 'logical sense', the Bongs made a 4300kg warhead bomb in WW2 and dropped a fair few of them. But the logic there was to defeat reinforced concrete shit. Not to, you know, blow up half a town.

          The funny part is that most concrete structures (maybe not those ones) can be killed with several precise bunker busters, provided you can drop them all within 5 meters. "Just use a lot of bang" is an old school approach.

            The Grand Slams actually weren't that effective against them when they hit the concrete, as they splintered or exploded 'above' instead of 'inside'. Most of the damage was done by creating a camouflet (a large crater) which caused the structure to just collapse as it sinks due to subsidence. I think in the end they used most Tall Boys and Grand Slams to hit bridges, which caused obvious damage. Though they did hit a U-Boat Pen with Tall Boys (not as potent as Grand Slams) and they did penetrate the roof and blew the girders supporting the roof which caused tons of concrete to fall into the pen. Damaging two U-Boats.

            They were superbly effective at destroying bridges and gun batteries. But Grand Slams were better used elsewhere and the actual explosion isn't how the damage is really dealt. However if you dropped a Grand Slam (FAB-9000 equiv) then you're going to delete a large part of a defensive position. The thing is there is noway for Russia to use them so I don't even know what the point of this thread is. Unless they load it up in a Tu-22M and hope it doesn't get shot down, I don't know any jet they have that can take a 9000kg bomb and drop it.

    So help me understand Soviet / Russian bomb naming convention.
    FAB = dumb bomb?
    KAB = guided bomb?
    Is there a distinction between guided bombs and powered-flight guided bombs (ie, missiles)? When a FAB is used in conjunction with a glide kit is it still a FAB or would you refer to it as a KAB? FAB-1500 + glide kit = KAB-1500?

      Actually never-mind I found:

      Its carriers were Tu-95, TU-16, TU-22, 3M and M4 bombers. From the currently available only Tu-95MS and Tu-160 can theoretically carry such aerial bombs, but practically not. The Tu-95MS is called a platform, according to its instructions, and can only use cruise missiles suspended on an internal suspension. For other purposes, it is not intended. The Tu-160 can carry all types of bombs, but it is a strategic bomber. Thus, the Tu-95 and Tu-160 are adapted for rockets, and there are no carriers left in this formation.
      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

      You could maybe bodge a FAB-9000 onto a Tu-95 to gravity drop it, but the chances of that mission being successful under patriot fire are going to be somewhat remote.

      The Tu-22M probably, without modifications.

    They can't use the big kabooms (FAB-3000 & greater) because they will have to be mounted on a bomber, and because they are unguided, you will have to fly directly over the target. High risk for little reward. Imagine the PR dopamine hit Ukraine would get if they downed a Tu-95 or Tu-160. It would be quite funny on the other hand to see an Su-34 carrying a FAB-9000 with one of the glide kits installed.
