KAB-500 (1500) family
KAB-500Kr, KAB-500-OD, KAB-1500Kr are guided and corrected air bombs
The KAB-500Kr corrected air bomb is designed to engage stationary ground/surface small-sized hardened targets, such as reinforced concrete shelters, runways, railway and highway bridges, military industrial installations, warships, and transport vessels.
The KAB-500-OD corrected air bomb is designed to engage ground targets, such as fire emplacemnts, and manpower hidden in mountainous terrains.
The KAB-1500Kr corrected air bomb is designed to engage various stationary ground/surface small-sized hardened targets, such as reinforced concrete shelters, military industrial installations, depots, and seaport terminals.
The KAB-500Kr, KAB-500-OD, KAB-1500Kr corrected air bombs are fitted with TV/terrain-matching homing heads and various types of warheads. TV homers with target data processing correlation algorithm can "remember" target location and correct bomb's flight trajectory until the impact on the target, thus realizing the "fire and forget" principle. Such homing heads can help defeat low-contrast and masked targets provided that terrain reference points and target coordinates related to them are available. The KAB-500Kr, KAB-500-OD, KAB-1500Kr corrected air bombs make part of weapon systems of such front-line aircraft types as Su-27, Su-30, Su-34, Su24M, MIG-29 and others.
The delivery set can be completed with the KAB-500Kr-U training bomb used for pilots' mastering combat employment skills for KAB-500Kr, KAB-500-OD and KAB-1500Kr corrected air bombs. The KAB-500Kr-U training bomb parameters are as follows: weight - 85kg, length 1,83m, diameter - 0,35m.
