Anti-Runway Bomb Durandal
|Ordtech OMI-ARW1 anti-runway weapon is based on French
Durandal used to neutralize enemy airfields.
Destruction is achieved by high speed penetration of target by exploding warhead with minimum risk to delivering aircraft.
The weapon released at high speeds and very low altitude to avoid enemy air-defence. Upon delivery, the weapon decelerates to obtain penetration angle and to increase safety distance from releasing aircraft. A solid rocket motor firing next accelerates the weapon to a very high speed for penetration into the target.
