Description: The Grom-2, 'Thunder' in English, is a precision guided glider weapon system developed by Russia's Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV) and derived from the Kh-38ME air-to-surface missile. The Grom-2 glide bomb weighs 250 kilogram and is provided with a 130 kg warhead which means that the new weapon is intended to hit target with outstanding accuracy while minimizing collateral damage. It is the Russian counterpart to the US Air Force JSOW stand-off weapon family. The Grom-2 weapon existence was revealed at MAKS air show outside Moscow on August 26, 2015. The Grom-1 and Grom-2 weapon systems are provided with INS navigation combined with either laser, active radar, thermal-imaging or satellite guidance. Their modular design allows for integration of a variety of warheads. The new strike weapons have been designed for release by the Su-24M and Su-34 bombers and the Mig-29SMT tactical fighter aircraft. The Sukhoi T-50 stealth fighter may carry up to four Grom-2 bombs internally.
