Description: The SPICE (Smart Precise Impact and Cost Effective guidance kit) is a forward and tail kit evolved from the proven Popeye missile intended to convert dumb/unguided bombs into smart guided air-to-surface munitions droppable from standoff ranges. It uses an advanced electro-optical guidance system to achieve outstanding precision against high value targets. Moreover, it is a 'fire and forget' weapon that automatically goes to its target once launching relying only on its navigation/seeker system. It was developed by Rafael mainly for use in the armed forces of Israel.

The Spice-250 is an autonomous, lighter and stealth variant of the Spice precision-guided weapon family with an estimated range in excess of 100 kilometers. The weapon features a real-time target update capability and can be equipped with a general purpose/blast fragmentation or penetrating warhead. The Spice-250 uses Inertial Navigation System (INS) and GPS for mid-course navigation while the end game is done using an electro-optical (EO) sensor based upon target imagery. Besides, it is insensitive to GPS jamming and can operate day/night in all weather conditions. It can be deployed by a wide variety of fighter aircraft with minor modifications. The Spice-250 is carried by the Smart Quad Rack (SQR) with each rack carrying up to four missiles. As of 2018 the Spice-250 is fully operational with the Israeli Air Force (IAF). The F-15I can carry 28 Spice-250s and the F-16I weapons.
