    Can't tell much of anything in that photo. The tip shouldn't be white.

    I guess at the very least the Chinese managed to fit the Uchebnaya or Training version of KAB-500KR GBU on Q-5 for training purposes... based on this report back from 2004 it seems they have had these for quite some time now...

    Actually its the training pod to simulate target acquisition, as illuminated by the Sapsan designator pod.
    and the one in the Q-5 is probably a cloned one that's the reason its white, while the original exported by Russia are Red..

    The pod picture is of a Russian seeker, it has nothing to do with the Chinese photo. Training bombs are red including the KAB-1500s you posted.

    Even China paints their training rounds red... everybody does it.

    It is not a KAB-500KR either training or live. As seen in this photo, [​IMG][/IMG] they have black seeker heads covered by glass to protect the camera. The head of the OP is painted white which means there is no TV equipment in it.

    Here is a clear pic of a Chinese KAB-500KR. The optical protective covers are red. That Q-5 is not it.
