DRDO test fires guided bomb from Sukhoi combat jet

DRDO test fires guided bomb from Sukhoi combat jet

Defence Research and Defence Organisation (DRDO) successfully flight tested a 500 kg class Inertial Guided Bomb today from Su-30 MKI Aircraft from the Pokhran test range in Rajasthan. The guided bomb achieved the desired range and hit the target with high precision.

All the mission objectives have been met. The weapon system is capable of carrying different warheads.

The test firing of the guided bomb came two days after the Indian Air Force successfully test fired the aerial version of the supersonic BrahMos cruise missile from a Sukhoi jet at the Andaman and Nicobar Islands on May 22. The 2.5-tonne BrahMos air-to-surface missile has a range of around 300 km, and it will significantly enhance the IAF's combat capability.
