Eurofighter tests EGBU-16 precision munition
The Eurofighter’s air-to-ground capabilites were further improved last week when partner company Cassidian Spain achieved the first EGBU-16 precision guided munition release.
This test comes after the first successful Paveway IV release carried out during February in the UK.
The EGBU-16 is the selected dual mode precision guided munition for Germany, Spain and Italy where as the Paveway IV precision guided bomb is the choice for the UK. Included in the broad-ranging Phase 1 Enhancement (P1E) programme, both weapons improve the all weather precision attack capability on the Typhoon.
