MOSCOW, August 9. /TASS/. Russia’s Aerospace Force will soon receive new-generation air bombs equipped with proximity fuzes, CEO of Tecmash engineering group Sergei Rusakov said on Tuesday.
The tests of the fuze that has been developed by Tecmash’s Electronic Instruments R&D Institute in Novosibirsk have passed successfully, he said.
"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 said.
Tecmash, part of Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec, was founded in 2011 and is the largest munitions producer in the country. It produces precision artillery and tank munitions, multiple launch rocket systems, aviation rockets and bombs, industrial explosives and many other items.
