Insane in the membrane: New long-range U.S. bombs headed for Ukraine - media --Testing for the weapon was only recently concluded, and it has yet to reach Washington's own inventories | 31 Jan 2024 | The US military is planning to provide Ukraine with its first shipment of a new, longer-range munition recently developed by Boeing, according to Reuters and Politico, which reported that the bombs could arrive in the country as soon as this week. With the Pentagon recently wrapping up final tests for the Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB), the U.S. is preparing a maiden transfer to Kiev, Politico reported, citing two officials and two others familiar with the discussions. The bombs can achieve a maximum range of 90 miles (145km), and will be "a significant capability for Ukraine," one of the officials said. Citing several unnamed sources, the outlet added that testing on the GLSDB was completed on January 16 and saw six rockets fired over the Gulf of Mexico.
