    Tests have been reportedly completed for the GROM-E1 (missile) and GROM-E2 (Glide Bomb)....they can be carried internally by the Su-57

    This news can be misleading : it refere to the completion of test of the the exportable version (Гром-Э1 and Гром-Э2) of domestic models of the new line of internal-bay-compatible planning bombs, moreover the unit of measure for delivery speed for the weapon is obviously wronged , it should read 140-445 m/s not km/h Wink

    As explained in the past the main concept behind this new line is to create a mass produceable relatively-low cost planning bomb/missile to be carried in internal bay of aircraft and UCAV with a very high destructive power (warhead weight from 315 kg -120 km propelled version - to 480 kg - 65 km from high altitude pure planning bomb version -) to be employed against enemy targets with known location ; this respond to mainly to two test-based observations :


    1) In not ГЛОНАСС/GPS and or IR/optically degraded environment the weapon should be capable to reliably destroy a building of reinforced concrete of middle size (not containing an high-degree of easily detonable or incendiary material) with a single ammunition.
    For this same mission the main strike platform amomg western Air Forces for the three decades, the F-35A should employ at least 5-6 GBU-39s, on the 8 maximum of its internal bays, with combined penetration/explosive warhead of 16 Kgs of explosive (as proved by similar attacks in Syria by part of IAF), or two AGM-154 JSOWs with a warhead in the 200 kg ballpark.

    2) In ГЛОНАСС/GPS and or IR/optically degraded environment (a situation that competitors military forces, in a limited conflict, would face much more likely than domestic ones) the primary damaging area of blast should assure the destruction or effective incapacitation of the targeted reinforced concrete structure previously mentioned with 2 munitions.
    Here the computations go furtherly bad for the opponent platform, employing GBU-39s in a similar environment would require the entire internal capacity of a squad of 4 or 5 F-35As (therefore this weapon will be almost certainly not be almost certainly employed in a similar environment) while 3 or 4 AGM-154 should be used (therefore at least 2 F-35As).


    The employement of this class of weapons will mostly capitalize on the much greater internal bay and combat radius of the multirole platform Су-57 ,allowing a single Су-57 to execute the same mission that would require from 2 to 4 F-35A/C and also with a greater chance of success in a homing-degraded environment.
    Naturallly this not only ease significantly the logistic and even more material cost burden , but also shorten enormously the time of execution cycle of those missions - also taking into account the graeter cruise speed of Су-57 in comparison with the F-35- allowing the progressive degradation of enemy military capabilities to proceed at a much higher pace.

    nice... so pack this into a 7 shot or 20 shot current 80mm rocket launcher or one of the new 5 or 10 tube rocket launcher stacked, and when firing a guided rocket you mark the target with a laser beam and launch the rocket... perhaps angle the rocket up into the air and after a few seconds as the rocket reaches the peak of its ballistic flight and starts to angle down you can lase the target and it will home in on it...

    Individual targets 5-6km away like a truck or light vehicle with a HMG on the back for instance, or an enemy ATGM launcher like TOW you could hit with a single rocket from stand off ranges.... nice.

    "Smart" ammunition will become invulnerable to electronic warfare
    For "smart" ammunition, a new software and analytical complex has been developed to improve the accuracy of hitting targets in the conditions of counteraction by means of electronic warfare (EW).
    Precision Guided Munitions in RuAF - Page 6 Radar_1000_d_850

    According to Rostec ,the complex is based on a new electronic defense system that can receive information about targets even when exposed to active interference with varying intensity.

    - New generation ammunition with artificial intelligence function - the most effective means of destruction in modern combat conditions. One of the key tasks of the developers is to make the "smart" filling invulnerable to electronic warfare, "said industrial Director of rostec state Corporation Bekhan Ozdoev. He added that the new complex surpasses its Russian and foreign counterparts in terms of the protection of the munition from interference and reduces to zero the effectiveness of electronic warfare assets.

    The complex is planned to be integrated into high-precision ammunition of defensive and offensive weapons systems.

    The Russian development was evaluated by the editor of the national Interest magazine, a former Pentagon official, Chris Osborne. According to him, jamming technologies can become extremely important for unmanned systems, as they can guarantee that controlled or Autonomous aircraft can not stray from the course set for the task. Missiles, rockets, and artillery shells will also become more accurate.
