Russia’s new-generation air bombs equipped with proximity fuzes will soon enter serial production.
The tests of the fuze that has been developed by Tecmash’s Electronic Instruments R&D Institute in Novosibirsk have passed successfully, CEO of Tecmash engineering group Sergei Rusakov was quoted as saying by company press service, TASS reports Tuesday.
"Now the institute is preparing for the launch of the product into serial production. I believe new-generation air bombs will enter service with the Russian Army already in the imminent future," the Tecmash CEO said.
The Tecmash press office has said the new bomb considerably excels munitions with contact fuzes that are currently operational with the Russian Aerospace Force.
"During an explosion with a contact fuze, the larger part of the blast energy is spent on creating a crater and destroying the soil, which reduces the radius of inflicting damage on the enemy and thus produces lower effect of using the munition," Tecmash added.
