Russia unveils new 1.5 ton Fuel Air glide bomb with precision targetting 25 mile glide range

Sharing is Caring!

“FAB 1500” M54

Massive blast radius. About a 100 meter “bad day” radius.

Cheap, using a bolt on glide and guidance kit

Launched by the Su34 Fullback fighter-bomber

Allows the heavy fighters to stand off and still put this massive bomb on target.

To put it in perspective, Russia has been using a feared TOS-1 and TOS-2 “flamethrower” system that is an MLRS launcher for thermobaric weapons. The range is only a couple miles, and the warheads on each missile are only about 100 lbs. (45 kg).

TOS-1 is a tracked vehicle based on a T-72 tank Chassis.
TOS-2 is a large tire vehicle with greater mobility, range and the ability to operate without a support heavy hauler low-boy trailer, but less armor.

The new weapon Is as mobile as the fighter bomber that carries it, and range and accuracy are greatly increased.

And the FAB explosive is about 30 times the size of the TOS flamethrower warheads and about 5 times heavier than a JDAM, plus it is a Fuel air bomb, so we are talking about at least a full city block or more per detonation.

If Russia starts hitting Kiev with these monsters, the war will end quickly.
