A thermobaric weapon is a kind of explosive that uses oxygen from the surrounding air to create a high-temperature explosion. It is also known as an aerosol bomb or a vacuum bomb. One of the most well-known thermobaric weapon types is the fuel-air explosive.
The energy content of thermobaric weapons is substantially higher than that of ordinary explosives of comparable weight since they are practically entirely fuel. Frequently, the fuel is elemental. Many thermobaric weapon types can be mounted on handheld launchers and launched from aircraft.
The Global Thermobaric Weapons market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Russia redeploying ‘heavy flamethrower’ thermobaric weapons to elite frontline troops in Ukraine.Russian special airborne forces are likely receiving thermobaric multiple launch rocket launchers, raising the possibility that they will be used in the country’s ongoing conflict with Ukraine.
Russian media claims on the transfer of TOS-1A thermobaric multiple launch rocket systems to Moscow’s airborne forces were used by the British defence ministry (VDV)
One of the most brutal military weapons currently in use is the thermobaric arsenal, which is fired by means of multiple launch rocket launchers.The very destructive TOS-1A, known as a “heavy flamethrower” in Russia, is generally used by the country’s specialised Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Protection Troops in Ukraine. The VDV has never been formally linked to the TOS-1A before.
The decision by Moscow to transfer the thermobaric multiple launch rocket systems suggests that the elite frontline troops would play a part in its forthcoming military onslaught in Ukraine.
It most likely forms a part of efforts to rebuild the VDV after it sustained significant losses.
The TOS-1A is an armoured multiple rocket launcher system that can fire thermobaric warhead-equipped missiles that can destroy infrastructure.
The artillery system can assist in firing thermobaric missiles, which are also known as aerosol bombs or vacuum bombs. These missiles are filled with a highly explosive fuel and chemical mixture, and when they explode, they can produce supersonic blast waves that can destroy anything in their path, including buildings and people.
