The US Navy has received the Paveway II enhanced laser-guided training round (ELGTR) from Lockheed Martin.
The ELGTR is a live-fire training solution that accurately simulates the flight characteristics, guidance system and laser-guided bomb envelope of the Paveway II system.
Compatible with F/A-18, AV-8B and F-16 aircraft, the ELGTR allows the aircrews to practise delivery tactics in a real-mission environment and experience actual weapon characteristics with current range limitations.
The US Navy precision strike weapons programme manager Captain Carl Chebi said the ELGTR was a reliable and cost-effective tactical employment tool that enables the aircrews to efficiently train for and maintain combat readiness.
