Description: The KAB-500/1500S-E is a new precision guided munition family developed to meet the requirements of the Russian Federation Air Force (RFAF) for an all-weather, day/night, fire and forget weapon to take out surface and ground targets. The KAB-500/1500S-E guidance system is based on the 24-channel GLONASS global positioning system (GPS). The brain of the new munition is the PSN-2001 receiver designed by Moscow-based KB Compass. Basically, the KAB-500/1500S-E is the Russian counterpart to the United States Armed Forces Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) weapons family. According to Russian press, the RFAF intends to provide the new KAB-500/1500S-E guided bombs to Su-24M, Su-34, Su-35 and Mig-35 aircraft. India and China are targeted as the first export customers.

The KAB-500S-E GLONASS-guided weapon can be dropped from aircraft at altitudes of 500 to 5,000 meters and airspeeds of 550 to 1,100 kilometers per hour (approx. Mach 0.5 to 1). The Circular Error Probable (CEP) is about 7 to 12 meters and is provided with an impact fuze with three delay modes. It is intended to destroy targets in well known locations such as munitions depots, industrial facilities, ships at berths. The target position can also be fed into the flight mission during captive flight before the bomb is dropped. The KAB-500S-E bomb made its combat debut in September 2015 during the Russian air strike campaign in Syria.
