The Drel bomb is a new base example of the gliding bomb dispenser equipped with self-targeting combat elements. The aerial bomb is capable of gliding for tens of kilometres to neutralise heavy equipment.

According to experts, the bomb will be invisible to radars. The target destruction range reaches up to 30 kilometres (after the bomb separates from the carrier).

The new bomb has no engine. The vehicle detects the target with the help of GLONASS guidance system. The cluster mechanism opens up at an altitude of 250 meters. The tests of the new bomb are to be finished in 2018. The new bomb can be used in all weathers around the clock. It can be used without the need for the aircraft to enter the zone of enemy's air defences. The bomb weighs 540 kilograms and has the maximum bombing altitude of 14 kilometres (the minimum - 100 meters).
