Russia Starts Production of New ‘Drill’ Glide Bombs

Russia has announced the start of production for a new type of glide bomb named Drill, capable of autonomous flight, utilizing a sliding flight path towards a target over an extended distance, then opening up at the appropriate moment.

These bombs have completed all tests thus far, and the first batch is scheduled for production in 2024.

The Drill is designed to target and destroy armoured vehicles, ground radar stations, control centres in power stations, and anti-aircraft missile systems.

Sources from both Russian and Western outlets suggest that ‘Drill’ is a type of cluster bomb and military analysts note that it is resistant to jamming and radar detection, making it difficult to destroy.
