BLU-129

100% Mission Success

Precision Lethality MK82 is a Quick Reaction Capability acquisition program to field a composite case warhead (BLU-129/B) capability in response to a United States Central Command Joint Urgent Operational Need for a very low collateral damage weapon. These weapons use carbon-fiber-wound construction of the warhead casing, provided by Aerojet Rocketdyne.  A carbon-fiber-wound bomb body disintegrates instead of fragmenting, which adds explosive force nearby, but lowers collateral damage.
