Outline sketch of the OFAB-100-120

The OFAB-100-120 is a small bomb can be carried on Sukhoi Su-17, Sukhoi Su-25 and Sukhoi Su-30 aircraft.[1]

Purpose[edit]

This bomb is designed to engage lightly armored materiel and military industrial facilities, as well as manpower.[2] It is dropped from altitudes of 500 to 15,000 m at a speed of 500 to 1,150 km/h. This aircraft bomb is effective against personnel in open terrain and motorized infantry at the reserves concentration base either on the march or in battle array. It is filled with fragments and powerful explosive compositions based on TNT/RDX. The design of this aircraft bomb provides for better fragments distribution in the fragments flight area and high density of the fragmentation zone within the lethal range as compared to general-purpose munitions.[3] Aircraft can carry this bomb with a single-point suspension bomb rack or on 14” NATO standard suspension systems, using the corresponding fuze type.
