Laser-guided Bomb LGB-24B/B

The Paveway III Laser-Guided Bombs (LGB) are the third generation laser-guided bombs. The LGB concept, originally proven in combat in Southeast Asia with the introduction of the Paveway I, was validated again during Operations Desert Storm in Iraq in 1991 and Allied Force in Kosovo in 1999. This unit, Paveway III, or LGB-24B/B, provides optimum operational flexibility through use of an adaptive digital autopilot, large field-of-view, and highly sensitive seeker. The GBU-24B/B Paveway III is a converted BLU-109A/B 2000-lb class bomb designated as a hard target penetrator.
