According to the newspaper, Boeing offers the Pentagon to supply Ukraine with its joint development with SAAB – Ground Lanched Small Diameter Bomb (ground bomb of small diameter).

This projectile uses a GBU-39 aerial bomb as a warhead. It is equipped with an M26 rocket engine (there are quite a lot of them in stock) and small folding wings. This is an inexpensive weapon, its components are readily available, journalists say.

GLSDB has GPS guidance, is capable of overcoming electronic interference, and can be used in all weather conditions against armored vehicles. This projectile hits 150 km, which will allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to hit the rear of the Russian army even deeper, Reuters states.

In the demo video, the GLSDB is launched from a Western MLRS missile system – similar to HIMARS and MARS-II, which the Armed Forces now use with GMLRS missiles (range – about 80 km).

According to journalists, the Pentagon is considering Boeing’s proposal. This is one of about half a dozen plans to produce new munitions for Ukraine and US allies in Eastern Europe.

GLSDB could be delivered as early as spring 2023, according to a document studied by Reuters. Boeing does not officially comment on this information. The Pentagon refused to talk about the possibility of supplying specific types of weapons, but assured that the United States is considering the most suitable systems for Ukraine.

  • Earlier, a number of Republicans called on the President of the United States Joe Biden to give Ukraine the “right weapon” – in particular, ATACMS missiles for HIMARS with a range of about 300 km.
