MOSCOW, (BM) – The Russian Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation (KTRV) has completed state tests of a promising torpedo and an adjustable 250 kg caliber bomb. This was announced on Friday, February 14, the company’s CEO Boris Obnosov, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
“Now documentation is being drawn up for them,” RIA Novosti quoted him as saying. Obnosov recalled that in 2019 KTRV delivered the Onyx anti-ship missiles and the Bastion coastal systems armed with them.
The head of the corporation said that during last year’s visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Era technopolis, he answered questions from a politician, including about the Zircon rocket.
“They assured him that on all the topics worked out by us, including this one, everything is proceeding in accordance with the schedules. Of course, today everyone has heard the works voiced by the president of the country,” he said. According to Obnosov, any other topic that KTRV deals with also requires great efforts, and the company pays close attention to each of them.
He added that the corporation is actively cooperating with PJSC Sukhoi Company, and approval of the Su-57 armament is almost every month.
On December 30, the general director of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Yuri Slyusar, said that new types of weapons would be created for fifth-generation fighters Su-57. He claimed that tests were underway with a second stage engine.
At the MAKS air show last August, KTRV introduced two new guided bombs of its own design – the K08BE caliber of 500 kg and the K029BE (UPAB-1500B-E) caliber of 1,500 kg. They relate to planning bombs. Ammunition uses a combined inertial-satellite guidance system, due to which they can be used both against targets detected by the carrier aircraft, and for previously identified ones, without using active sensors by the carrier.
