Ukrainian aviation is already using American JDAM guided munitions.
This was announced today, on March 31, on the air of the telethon by the speaker of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
We also use JDAM bombs. These are Western-style bombs, with which our aircraft delivers successful strikes against important targets. These bombs are somewhat less powerful, but very accurate,” Ignat noted.
He stressed that Ukraine needs more such bombs in order to be more successful at the front.
Ignat also noted that Russia also began to use guided bombs. To do this, rashists have conventional aviation bomb wings – they get the ability to plan tens of kilometers and have GPS navigation for guidance.
They have one and a half ton, newer, and old Soviet still FAB weighing 500 kg. he stressed. “They fly more or less accurately, not in the way the invaders would like, but they have such a direction. An aircraft dropping such bombs does not fly into the zone of destruction of our air defense … They fly up to the line of combat collision for about 50 km.
According to Ignat, the rashists launch guided bombs not only from the north, but also from the east and south.
Russia has a lot of aerial bombs, these are still long-standing stocks – I think that it’s not the bombs that need to be counted, but how many of them they can upgrade to such an option as a guided aerial bomb, he stressed.
