This bomb is being developed by Raytheon. The Stormbreaker entered service with the Air Force (Air Force) last year. She was armed with the F-15E Strike Eagle heavy fighter-bomber.
The new tests involved not only the bomb carrier itself, the F-35B, but also another F / A-18F fighter. He tracked the flight of the Stormbreaker. This bomb is universal – it can hit mobile and stationary targets in bad weather conditions, in the dark, with smoke and dust. Stormbreaker uses GPS.
The bomb has a folding wing for maneuvering. It can glide to a stationary target at a distance of 110 kilometers from the drop point or to a moving target – 72 kilometers.
