Russian SFF/EFP submunition


Recommended Posts

This is a smart submunition which uses a SFF/EFP to defeat an armored target detected as the spinning submunition scans the ground with its sensor while descending. It is the direct equivalent of similar US systems. Have known about these since 1985, when the CIA briefed attendees of the Soviet Threat Technology Conference and seen promo videos from the manufacturers of Smerch and such, but this is the first real photo I've seen of the actual submunition, which seems to be used for both MRL and air strike applications.
