Cockpit View Of An U.S. Air Force F-16 Dropping GBU-30 Bombs Over South KoreaF-16 Dropping Bombs in South Korea. F-16 Dropping Bombs
Things are getting interesting in the Korean Peninsula. The guys with the 36th Fighter Squadron part of the U.S. Air Force’s 51st Operations Group at Osan Air Base, dropped GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs over South Korea this past June. The GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb (SBD) is a 250 lb. precision-guided glide bomb that is intended to provide aircraft with the ability to carry a higher number of more accurate bombs.
This was a test drop and the footage from this drop is being used to help with safety assessments of weapons separation and bomb flight profiles. Most U.S. Air Force aircraft will be able to carry a pack of four SDBs in place of a single 2,000 lb. bomb. Sounds like they are getting ready to bomb someone, doesn’t it?
Should the U.S. be more aggressive against North Korea maneuvers? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
