BetAB-500


Recommended Posts

So as I understand it, the BetAB-500 is a runway/concrete/bunker buster.

 

Has it got a bug in it or how many do you need to puncture through an ammunition depot. I have used 2 on same target and no joy ?

 

If this bomb is not a dedicated "bunker Buster" for the frogfoot can you please advise which to use (bomb wise)

 

Thoughts on a postcard please.

 

Also is the drag for bombs and CCIP in the su25-t going to be fixed (provided its broken) soon as it seems you need a very steep dive for shallow curve bombs.

I use it for runways. low and fast.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Doesnt seem to have a very large amount of explosive in it... 75.5kg compared to the GBU 31 V3 which has 240kg.[/quote

 

 

 

this is what it does in real life, doesnt look like its 75kg.

That accords with the RL explosive content of the default and ShP variant. Damage-modelling in DCS is a WIP.

I would try using S-25/S-25L or S-13s if you're in the 25A. Nothing will give a one hit destruction though. In the 25T you can use the KH-29, but still I don't think it's a one hit kill.

 

I'm just working off of my memory atm.

SU-25 Weapons to destroy an Ammunition Depot

 

Did a test:

 

2x KH-29T/L

2x KAB-500kr (which is odd since this has 100kg less explosive compared to 29T/L)

6x betAB-500

8x FAB-500

>8x S-25/25L (this surprised me...)

approx 32x FAB-100

approx 20x S-13

 

 

So, if tactics allow, set yourself up and drop a couple KAB-500kr on it and call it a day. They weigh less than kh-29s and are fire and forget with the only downside being a fairly limited delivery window.

 

For more flexibility in the combat area or if flying a su-25a I would take a full compliment of S-13s. Half will take out the depot leaving half for other things.

 

Also, note I didn't test the betAB-500ShP because their accuracy is so terrible, I doubt I would be able to get enough hits on target from 1 su-25.
