Description: The BLU-111 is a 500-pound class steel casing warhead designed to fit into low-cost JDAM bombs. The main purpose of the BLU-111 is to penetrate hardened targets, bunkers or concrete walls while minimizing collateral damage because it carries only 500-pound of high explosive.

The BLU-111A/B designation refers to BLU-111 warheads thermally protected to withstand fuel fire on an aircraft carrier. The BLU-111/B designation refers to a warhead filled with a less sensitive explosive resulting into a safer weapon compared with baseline BLU-111s. The US Navy seems to be clearly the main customer for these specially modified BLU-111s.

The BLU-111 warhead has been provided to the GBU-30 JDAM bomb and AGM-154C JSOW standoff weapon (BLU-111/B). The BLU-111/B provided to the US Navy JSOW-Cs will be fitted with the FMU-152 Joint Programmable Fuze (JPF).
