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 GBU-15(V)2/B was deployed in 1985 and features an Infrared (IR) guidance system. During 1999 to 2000 a large number of GBU-15 bombs were upgraded to the EGBU-15 standard which adds a GPS/INS navigation unit for higher precision strikes. As of early 2011, the remaining EGBU-15 guided bombs are available for the F-15E aircraft with the GBU-15 model inventory being completely depleted.
