SARB-83 is a penetrator bomb, which is designed to be used against surface and underground targets. SARB-83 contains Multiple Warhead System (MWS) technology. It has siilar external geometry, guidance unit interfaces, mass,  center of mass, and inertia properties with Mk-83 General Purpose Bombs (GPB)

- High peneration performance at oblique impact angles and/or low impact velocities

- High fragmentation effect against secondary targets with pre-formed fragments utilized in Augmenting Charge design

- Usablity against various target types

- Potential to be used with all guidance kits which are compatible with Lk-83  GBP; and potential to be dropped from all aircraft for which Mk-83 GPB is certified.


SARB-83 weights 415 kg for a length of 1860mm. It includes two types of explosives:

- Augmenting charge: plastic bonded explosive

- Follow trough bomb: aluminized plastic bonded explosive


Typical hard targets includes:

- Buried hard targets: Munition depots, underground petrochemical depots, bunkers, aircraft shelters, command and control centers
