GBU-12, GBU-16, AND GBU-10 (PAVEWAY II)
The GBU-12, GBU-16, and GBU-10 (PAVEWAY
II) guided bomb units (GBUs) (fig. 1-27) are
Mk 82/BLU-111, Mk 83/BLU-110, and Mk 84/BLU-
117 LDGP bombs configured to detect a target
illuminated by a laser beam. The modification consists
of MAU-169 series computer control group (CCG) and
MXU-650, 651, or 667 series airfoil group (AFG).
Each AFG contains identical items; although they are
different in physical size, they perform identical
functions. A typical AFG is composed of a folding
wing assembly, forward adapter assembly, guidance
fins, and hardware required for assembly of
The CCG mounts on the nose of the bomb body
(this precludes the use of nose fuzing). The CCG
detects a laser-illuminated target and provides weapon
guidance signals to the moveable guidance fins.
The guidance fins (canards) attach to the CCG and
the forward adapter assembly. The canards react to the
signals received from the CCG to direct the weapon to
The wing assembly is mounted on the aft end of the
bomb body. It adds necessary aerodynamic stability
and lift for in-flight maneuvering. An electric tail fuze
is installed in the tail of the bomb.
