Model Of USS Cheyenne, Last US Monitor

Laid down in San Francisco, California, in 1898 and first commissioned in 1902 as USS Wyoming, the monitor initially underwent trials and exercises off the West Coast. Steaming south, she protected American citizens and interests during the Colombian civil war. Out of commission from 1905 to 1908, Wyoming returned to service to partake in a major experiment.

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.

The AWG-9 could track up to 24 targets simultaneously and launch up to six Phoenix missiles nearly simultaneously. Read more »
