KAB-1500LG- (F; Pr; OD) -E

The bomb KAB-1500LG-FE is a smart demolition bomb. It is equipped with a cargo warhead high explosive and is designed for constant attack ground targets such as railway and road bridges, buildings, industrial and military ammunition depots or railway terminals. These weapons can also be used to attack ships and cargo ships. The bomb KAB-1500LG-FE striking a detonator or may detonate a delay. Directs the object opponent with a laser illumination system to be installed on airplanes. As a warhead, a special-piercing high-explosive penetrating the capsule that can go deep into the soil to a depth of 20 meters and punch through overlapping structures with thickness up to 3 meters.

  • KAB-1500LG-E aircraft controlled bombs equipped with laser air-stabilized homing heads and  are designed (depending on warhead) as following below:
  • KAB-1500LG-F-E equipped with high explosive warhead to engage stationary ground and sea targets like railway and highway bridges, military and industrial objects, ships, cargo ships, ammunition store ships, railway terminals.
  • KAB-1500LG-OD-E equipped with full air explosive wahead to engage stationary ground and sea targets like railway and highway bridges, military and industrial objects, ships, cargo ships, strong points including those camouflaged in terrain. 
  • KAB-1500LG-Pr-E equipped with penetrating warhead to engage starionary small and extremely strong buried targets like strong concrete objects, command points, ammunition stores.

These weapons are used with front-line aircraft like Su-24M, Su-34, Su-35 etc. equipped with the target laser illumination system  as well as other carriers equipped with simple collimator sights for preliminary target designation (using target ground illumination) day and night. Application conditions of mentioned above weapon are determined by aircraft flight operation.

Guided aerial bombs KAB-1500L-Ex is designed for use tactical aircraft and long-range aircraft. The bomb used to destroy high and buried in the ground of critical facilities such as fortifications and warehouses of nuclear weapons, command centers, as well as a variety of small targets.

The bomb KAB-1500L-Ex has a semi-active laser homing system, while providing bombing circular error probable of 7-10 m. Moreover, a significant amount of this indicator was instrumental error of measurement accuracy.

Aerodynamic configuration bombs KAB-1500L-Pr - "tailless". The aft arranged crosswise plumage, behind which there is a biplane rudders that provide maneuverability bomb. Front and rear tail folding, which allows you to place a bomb, not only on the external load, but also in the large aircraft bomb bay.

As a warhead, a special-piercing high-explosive penetrating the capsule that can go deep into the soil to a depth of 20 meters and punching overlap fortifications up to 3 m thick.

Modification of the KAB-1500L-F is equipped with a high-explosive warhead, made on the basis of the standard unguided bombs FAB-1500. With the explosion of the KAB-1500L-F formed crater up to 20 m. Externally similar to the bomb KAB-1500L-Pr.
