GROM-B (THUNDER-B )

   GROM-B (THUNDER-B ) TV-guided air-to-surface missile system represents a modern rotor or fixed-wing aircraft weapon system enabling higly accurate engagement of high value surface targets, both mobile and stationary, including highly reinforced concrete buildings and  bunkerts, command centers, light surface ships, MBTs,  etc. Weapon concept is particularly adjusted for tactical use in anti-terrorist operations, enabling pih-point accurate enagement of  terrorst-occupied points of ressistance  with surgical accuracy and with very low probabaility of collateral damage, even in tactical situations of engaging of  targets placed in dense populated urban areas. Helicopter Mi-17 armed with GROM-B  missile system becomes powerful force multiplier, capable for effective air support of important anti-terorist operations.
