U.S. testing an ‘all-weather’ bomb

The Pentagon has begun testing a weapon capable of striking adversaries hiding behind poor weather, what was once an effective shield from accurate targeting. “Poor weather and battlefield obscurants continue to endanger warfighters as adversaries rely on these conditions to escape attacks…this has established the requirement for an all-weather solution that enhances warfighters’ capabilities when visibility is limited,” stated the Raytheon company website, the contractor supplying these weapons to the U.S. Air Force. The armament can be equipped on F-16s, F-15s, and F/A-18s.
