New Ammunition for Su-57

New Ammunition for Su-57 April 4, 2018

Russia has completed the development of a small-caliber ammunition, Drel air bomb, for its fifth generation fighter Su-57 (PAK FA). The manufacturer of the ammunition, Techmash Concern, said Drel can be used on all types of aircraft, from long-range strategic bombers to ground attack planes.

The bomb is also virtually invisible to the radar with heat-seeking elements and its fire-and-forget feature allows the bombers to take out a target without entering the hostile airspace. The 500 kg-bomb can glide for over 30 kilometers.
