US military testing StormBreaker bomb to hit enemy even in bad weather


Waltham (USA): Unites States of America will soon get the 250 pound (113 kilogramme) StormBreaker bomb, which has the ability to hit moving targets in all-weather conditions several kilometres away. The StormBreaker bomb, previously known as the Small Diameter Bomb II, or SDB II bomb, has been developed by Raytheon and tested on the US Air Force F-15E Strike Eagle.

The bomb will be integrated with the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter by 2022. The US Navy has also begun the StormBreaker bomb integration on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft.

During a war, bad weather and other physical obstructions in the battlefield are the biggest hindrances in fighter jets and bombers hitting the enemy but with the StormBreaker bomb, the US military will have the capability to easily target their opponents.
