Moving target weapon

Raytheon’s GBU-49 Enhanced Paveway II precision-guided munition (PGM) will be integrated on the F-35 Lightning II to supplement its interim moving target strike capability. Some 400 GBU-49s have reportedly been ordered to provide this capability. The GBU-49 PGM is compatible with the Block 3F configured F-35.

F-35s configured to Block 3i and Block 3F standards currently use the 500lb (227kg) GBU-38 Joint Direct Attack Munition for moving target strike capability. David C Isby
