Flight Range Extension of a Guided Aerial Bomb with a Rocket Engine during Climb Bombing
Keywords:aircraft, climbing, guided aerial bomb, horizontal range, motion trajectory, solid-propellant rocket engine, total thrust impulse
The possibility of a significant flight range extension of a guided aerial bomb during climb bombing due to the jet thrust created by a solid-propellant rocket engine was considered. By means of simulation, a comparative analysis of the range of a guided aerial bomb equipped (not equipped) with a solid-propellant rocket engine under typical flight conditions of the carrier aircraft during level flight and climb bombing was performed. It was demonstrated that the use of a solid-propellant rocket engine, whose mass is 20 % of the guided aerial bomb’s mass, allows to increase the horizontal range of its flight at least twice.
