Russia starts mass production of FAB-3000 aviation bombs

Moscow, Mar 21 (Prensa Latina) The Russian military industry started the production of three-ton FAB-3000 aviation bombs, the Ministry of Defense informed on Thursday in a statement issued on its official website.

Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu visited the military enterprises in the province of Nizhny Novgorod, 400 kilometers east of Moscow where those bombs are being manufactured.

“Shoigu was informed that the production of FAB-500 aviation bombs at those companies has significantly skied off and the production of FAB-1500 aviation bombs has doubled. In addition, as of February mass production of FAB-3000 bombs began,” the press release says.

The range of artillery shells produced by military enterprises in Nizhny Novgorod working 24/7 and in three shifts also increased significantly, the Defense Ministry underscored.

“Those outcomes had been possible thanks to the upsurge and modernization of production areas, as well as the use of high-tech machines and equipment,” the Russian military ministry concluded.
