Description: The GBU-15 is a combat-proven guided bomb capable of destroying the most hardened targets. During the Gulf War (1991) the GBU-15 demonstrated its capabilities against Saddam Hussein's regime. It was developed to be released from the F-111 and the F-4, currently is released from the F-15E Strike Eagle aircraft.
The GBU-15 consists of modular components attached to either a Mk 84 general purpose bomb or BLU-109 penetrating warhead. Each GBU-15 has a forward guidance section, warhead adapter section, control module, airfoil components and a weapon data link.
The weapon can attack using the direct attack mode, which means the pilot locks the weapon onto the target and the GBU-15 guides itself to the target, and the indirect attack mode, which means the pilot must guide actively the GBU-15 bomb via the data-link to the selected target.
The EGBU-15 adds a GPS/INS guidance package to the GBU-15 bomb to achieve all-weather capability and unprecedented accuracy of about 3 meters CEP. The US Air Force plans to procure 1,200 EGBU-15 for the F-15E Strike Fighter fleet.
