India’s first Long-Range Bomb (LRB) Successfully Tested in Odisha

India has gained more strength as a result of this achievement. Over Balasore, Odisha, an Indian Air Force (IAF) crew and the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) successfully flight-tested the country’s first indigenously developed Long-Range Bomb (LRB) from a Sukhoi-30 fighter jet.

The LR Bomb, which has a range of 100 kilometers, was launched from a fighter aircraft in the Indian Air Force flying at a height of 10 kilometers. The LR Bomb was designed and developed by the DRDO’s Research Centre Imarat (RCI) and can carry a 1000 kilogram of the warhead. The successful tests might be a force multiplier and a big boost for India’s armed forces, especially given China’s hostile posture in the region.

India has used Israeli laser-guided bombs in the past, from the Kargil war to Operation Bandar in Balakot in 2019. With the successful test of the LR Bomb, India will be able to keep well within its borders while hitting enemy targets at a range of 100 kilometers with exceptional precision.

The LR Bomb successfully flew a day after India tested the DRDO Smart Anti-Airfield Weapon (SAAW) at the Pokhran range. It has a range of 100 kilometers and is capable of hitting ground targets. SAAW can carry a 125-kilogram warhead and is designed to cripple airfield runways. The anti-airfield weapon was last tested by the DRDO in January.
