Russian Aerospace Forces simulated a nuclear strike with unique ammunition


Fighter Bomber, a video blogger, posted a video on YouTube demonstrating how an airplane drops a unique IAB-500 bomb, the detonation of which simulates a nuclear explosion. The explosion of a small ammunition looks almost the same as the explosion of a nuclear charge, of course. In this case, there is no radiation exposure and contamination of the area.


IAB-500 is a very rare ammunition. It is a container with a fuse and kerosene. Upon detonation, an air-gas mixture forms, which flares up, like a nuclear mushroom, in a ratio of about 1 to 72 to the “original”. When conducting military exercises, a bomb explosion creates a certain effect, although, of course, there is no one hundred percent similarity with a nuclear explosion.


The IAB-500 was originally designed to simulate the special nuclear warhead RN-24, which was developed for front-line aviation. The first aircraft that could carry this bomb on board was the Su-7b. The ammunition was withdrawn from service in 1984.

Recall that about a year ago, the US military, in the person of Lieutenant General Robert Ashley, accused the Wall Street Journal of Russia that it could conduct nuclear tests prohibited by the international community. However, no evidence of such tests was presented.

    Fighterbomber is not the one that covers all the obscenities?

    A large-caliber explosion often resembles a Y. explosion. A flash, then a mushroom ... even in films about VO, although there is a caliber ....

    Why unique? laughing And how do you need to train ammunition when simulating a nuclear strike? Well, he will burrow into the ground without a special effect. Just throw a blank? Who should touch this when tested?

    It is a container with a fuse and kerosene. Upon detonation, an air-gas mixture forms, which flares up, like a nuclear mushroom

    Very well. You can down there on the left flash ... yell and all that. Above I managed to get away from the moment of the explosion and so on. I meant by "all that" to train. What is unique about?

    Something, in fact, is nothing like the detonation of a nuclear weapon.

    Recall that about a year ago, the US military authorities in the person of Lieutenant General Robert Ashley, according to The Wall Street Journal, accused Russia of the possibility of conducting nuclear tests prohibited by the international community.

    Recall also that at about the same time, the United States tested a new mechanism for detonating a nuclear bomb. And last year’s tragedy at the Nenoks training ground was probably related to the response to this behavior. The Rosatom report on the causes of the "accident" with the participation of the enterprise’s employees in the Zarov Closed Joint-Stock Company was never published, if I am not mistaken.

    It's funny that the explosion of this "unique ammunition" was much less like an atomic bomb explosion than explosions of non-unique ammunition.

    On YouTube video, nothing about imitating a nuclear explosion, just a video of the exercises.
    Maybe this is such an advertisement for the blogger himself?

    What are the performance characteristics of the RN-24?

    Nothing even reminiscent of a nuclear explosion. Bullshit full of nothing.
