The introduction of the precision weapon, which can be aimed and directed against a single target using external or internal guidance, is without a doubt one of the most significant innovations in the history of twentieth-century combat.
The precise weapon, which can be launched from planes, ships, submarines, and land vehicles, as well as by individual soldiers on the ground, demonstrates the notion of a low-cost danger forcing a high-cost and difficult defense.
The first attempts to produce viable precision guided weapons were made during World War I.
However, such weapons did arrive in the Second World War, albeit in rudimentary but significant form, and it was this experience that gave us the generation of weapons that are presently in arsenals of many nations.
The China Precision-Guided Munition Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
For the first time, the China Air Show revealed a spectrum of Chinese precision-guided munitions (PGM), which had been kept a well guarded secret for many years.
At Zhuhai, the Luoyang Electro-Optical Technology Development Centre (LOEC) demonstrated two PGMs: the LS-6 glide bomb and the LT-2 laser-guided bomb (LGB).
The LS-6 is a range-extender kit for general-purpose (GP) bombs that includes a satellite/INS guidance system in the weapon’s tailcone.
After a high-altitude release at 11,000 m, the variant shown has a glide range of up to 60 km and a 440 kilogramme bomb body. With the addition of a rocket booster, the range might be increased even further.
China has also produced a number of aerial laser-designation pods (LDP) for use with LT-2-type missiles. The LT-2 looks to be a more customised design with a cylindrical warhead manufactured specifically for it.
