Lockheed Martin has won an $87.6 million contract from the US Air Force for production of Paveway II Plus Laser Guided Bomb (LGB) kits.
The company announced Monday that its deliveries include the guidance and tail assemblies for GBU-10 (2,000-lb.) and GBU-12 (500-lb.) LGB configurations.
"Our efficient and cost-effective manufacturing enables us to offer the US Air Force and our allies a cost-effective solution for their LGB requirements," said Joe Serra, Precision Guided Systems director at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
Paveway II Plus LGB provides US and allied warfighters with a reliable direct-attack capability to help them achieve their mission in today's air-to-ground engagements.
Lockheed Martin is a provider of all three Paveway II MK-80 series LGB variants (GBU-10 MK-84, GBU-12 MK-82 and GBU-16 MK-83 [1,000 lb.]). The company is also only provider of the Enhanced Laser Guided Training Round and Dual Mode LGB kits.
