Strap in, folks, ’cause we’re diving headfirst into a tale of military prowess and controversy with Russia’s latest killer toy, the PKB-500U Drel.

After flexing its muscles in Ukraine, this cluster glide bomb is gearing up for mass production in 2024.

It’s not just a bomb; it’s a technological leap for the Russians – turning its run-of-the-mill gravity bombs into precision-guided nightmares.

Weighing a hefty 540 kilograms (1,190 pounds), this Russian bad boy packs a punch with 15 “smart” submunitions.
