The rocket boosted bombs add kinetic energy to the explosive.

The Russians got their base from the Soviets, but it continues to amaze me how their weapons tech remains on the cutting edge. I think they have the #6 (?) economy in the world, and the percentage of their GDP that is dedicated to defense is higher than ours.
One can understand why we remain #1, because we have the brains and money of Empire, but why aren't other countries even viable?

We have drones -- which are the cutting edge.

I suspect that the only thing that the rocket-assist does is enhance penetration.

Together with a delayed fuse this is probably why the burst is so catastrophic.
