The Region Scientific and Production Enterprise is a subsidiary of Russia’s Tactical Missiles Corporation.

"There are plans that a contract for their delivery will be signed with Russia’s Defense Ministry," Krylov said.

According to the CEO, the export version of the KAB-250LG-E bomb has already been demonstrated at exhibitions and a number of foreign customers have shown interest in it.

"Several orders for these bombs placed by foreign customers are being discussed now," Krylov added. According to the CEO, Russian-made KAB bombs are no inferior to their US rivals.

"The Russian KAB-250LG-E and KAB-1500LG-Pr-E bombs are analogs of the US GBU-12 and GBU-24 guided bombs by their operating principles and, therefore, are similar or superior to them by a number of characteristics," Krylov added.
