In VIdeo: First Footage Of Mass Use Of Russian RBC-500 Cluster Bombs

Support SouthFront

 

Russian military sources shared the first footage of the mass use of the RBC-500 cluster bombs in Ukraine. The video was reportedly filmed in the area of Staromayorskoe in the south of the DPR.

The RBC-500 bomb is a powerful munition capable of destroying a column of armored vehicles or a large manpower cluster bombs. One cassette includes 15 Motiv-3 anti-tank submunitions. The bomb explodes in air and the combat elements are scattered over the area. Each of them has a parachute that slows down the fall. Meanwhile, infrared sensors allow submunitions to search for targets within 100 meters. As soon as it positions a target, a charge shoots, creating a cumulative jet of gases and molten copper. It is capable of burning through tank armor of 70 to 150 mm.

The RBC-500 can be launched from airplanes, as well as with the Smerch and Tornado-S MLRS. The RBK-500 cluster bomb entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1987. The Motif-3 ammunition was upgraded to the Motiv-3M version. In early November, Russian sources also showed a strike of Motiv-3M on armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of Avdeevka.

isn’t it funny how mostly all the nafo trolls left the sf comment section on this sites ukraine articles right after the new shiny war in israel started? it’s as if they are distributed in specific comment sections on the internet on command 🤔

The Press

they do they have bot farms. you sign up. they give you a script of things to say in particular situations, and a bunch of links to articles and videos that you need to bomb with pro ukro comments and anti rus comments/retorts to anything positive or supportive of rus. new links are available daily and are added throughout the day.

The Press

technically it’s more of a troll farm not a bot farm since it’s real (stupid) people , they get paid per comment and guess who is forking the money? u.s ngos which actually get their money from the u.s government so technically the u.s taxpayer money funds it.

they always hire real low quality people too. but that’s not a surprise because what potent individual would sell their soul for $0.50 per post.

they wish they would not enter the conflict at first place at all. but the usa backed coup governement believed and trusted the usa that they can win with western weapons. like the leopards, which are now jacked up like tin cans.

Dstroj

i heard one day that ukronazi pigs like western supplied cluster munitions.

enjoy stinking nazified trash. flip side of the coin.

eye for an eye and they aren’t bombing civilians.

Piipii

exactly like this. when the people’s republics of donetsk and luhansk declared themselves independent, they wanted to live in peace without persecution and “odessa tragedies”. the ukrainian coup government did not allow them to live in peace in their own country. and still the ukrainians attack. clusters are eligible.

in a coffin that is.

hopefully not. i don’t want them back here. let him die with the others. it is sad to see young women dead in the ukrainian trenches.

The Old Man

the submunition is supposed to explose when it detect the thermal signature of a vehicule. but in the video all submunitions exploded. is it really rbc-500? or i’m wrong ? can someone explains this pls ?

the first video looked more like anti personnel ammo to clear forest strips. whatever the case i hope russia starts using these en masse, just like ukraine is predominantly using cluster ammo. hopefully the jews gave russia the go ahead to start taking the war a little more seriously.

the text explains it. only 3 of them are anti armour, the rest are normal bomblets.

Piipii

explained in the text. if the target is infantry, it does not create a heat trace of the vehicle, but hits the ground directly at the infantry.

concerned citizen

that looks very scary.

and to think that nato opened this particular pandora’s box by supplying the ukraine with these kinds of weapons after warning russia not to use them.

russia finally responds to the nato/zelensky escalation in the use of cluster bombs that has already caused many manpower losses. better late than never.
