The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified US Congress of a
possible Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to Israel of GBU-28 Bunker Buster bombs as
well as associated equipment and services.
The Government of Israel has requested a possible sale of 100 GBU-28s that
include: BLU-113A/B penetration warhead, WGU-36A/B guidance control unit,
FMU-143H/B bomb fuze, and BSG-92/B airfoil group guide. Also included are:
support equipment; testing, spare and repair parts; supply support; publications
and technical data, US Government and contractor technical assistance and other
related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $30 million.
The GBU-28 is a special weapon that was developed for penetrating hardened
command centers located deep underground. The Israeli Air Force will use these
GBU-28s on their F-15 aircraft. The US government plans to acquire 100 new
GBU-28s instead of taking them from the existing inventory.
Lockheed-Martin will be the prime contractor for this proposed sale. The US
Congress must approve this potential FMS before it can be concluded.
