Photo of the day: JDAM that’s a good shot!

GBU-10-boat

Pirates beware, the JDAM is deadly accurate.

Small pirate boat, meet JDAM. This image captures the moment just before a 2,000 pound joint direct attack munitions laser guided bomb strikes a small boat during a “maritime tactics development and evaluation” mission.

The 337th Test and Evaluation Squadron sent a solo B-1 bomber over the Gulf of Mexico to assess and improve its capabilities, but according to Lt. Col. Alejandro Gomez, they already knew what those capabilities were.

“This evaluation solidifies what our crew members have already known: We can strike surface targets. The knowledge we gain from these events gives combatant commanders assurance that we can be called upon to complete the mission,” Gomez said.

Pirates beware…

GBU-10-21-685x488

Tada! Now you see it, now you don’t.
