Yes, SOM missile's B2 variant hosts NEB.Holy cow that F-4 Phantom carrying them looks beautiful. So good to see them still in service and updated to delivery the latest weaponry, although judging by the HUD it looked like the bomb was being delivered using a simple CCIP system. Would have though there would have been a bit more sophisticated systems to deliver a pin-point bunker busting bomb.
Stop showing footage of the F-4. It's pornography, stop it!
Seriously, I'm really impressed by the accuracy of those stand off weapons. I'm impressed they are able to hit in an area of such a small radius. Do, or will the bunker busting bombs shown in the top video carry a GPS guidance system or any other pin point targeting system?
Thank you for the video.
That is some seriously advanced weaponry that until now I never knew that Turkey had. It's like a cruise missile but with smart bomb capabilities. What other weapons like this does Turkey have in it's arsenal and what sort of stuff are they planning for the future?
Yeap, they are actually MK-81 and MK-82 bombs.A lot of that stuff is pretty beautiful. I liked the look of the laser-guided bombs. I know times have changed and designs have advanced, but it's still nice to see the basic "classic" design of the laser-guided bomb is still being used.
Many or not one at all. It depends various factors.And how many lives can be annihilated with that bomb?
These bombs, missiles started to get developed way before ISIS.I guess that's part of Turkey's program of an all out war against ISIS.
As far as i know, Turkey won't join the operations directly. (Maybe some air-strikes along the US fighters) Ground forces will be Turkmen Brigades (6000 strong). They are our kin living in Syria.But I've read that US will be part of that military activity so there should also be a display of weaponry on the part of the US. Or maybe they would just supply the fighter jets? The article said that the Turkish army will handle the ground control while the US will take care of the air strikes.
I wonder if we are talking about Brimstone ?Yeah I've heard of the JDAM kits. I was reading recently how the US has tested laser designators on a JDAM bomb, making them LJDAM's. From what I read they are able to target moving objects and have been successfully tested in doing so.
Some were tested with F-15E's against fast moving objects and the bomb was guided to the target from inside the plane. Kinda reminds me of the first guided bombs the Luftwaffe used...
