OFAB 250-270. Fragmentation High Explosive Bomb

OFAB 250-270. Fragmentation High Explosive Bomb 250-270 is intended for destruction of military-industrial sites, railway junctions, field facilities and personnel in open terrain as well as in light armored vehicles and trucks on the march or during attack within the main concentration perimeter.

The OFAB 250-270 has distinct features that are clearly different from the RBK series bombs. The OFAB 250-270 has a pair of tail rings, and the rear of the main part of the bomb does not extend to the end of the tail section. Another clear difference is the front of the OFAB 250-270, with a distinct ridge before the front of the bomb, a slight dome on the front, and a single large fuze.
