Raptor 2 Guided Bomb

Status: Not Ordered
Category: Bombs
 
Description:

Raptor 2 is an upgrade of the Raptor 1 system, fitted with a rocket pod giving it greater range and manoeuvrability than the original glide bomb. The precision-guided weapon can be launched from a variety of aircraft and has been integrated on the Mirage III, F1, Sukhoi 24 and the Cheetah aircraft. Navigation can be autonomous, by waypoint or by using GPS-assisted inertial navigation.

It is believed that Raptor 2 has not entered SAAF service, but has been exported.
