  • JDAM Impact

    Raptor supersonic JDAM: faster, further, longer.


    The link is an interesting articule, if like me you are interested in the JDAM system, it's really what is shapeing future wars, also there is a cool video file.

    Now you have me googling for JDAM videos. It sucks that since its on GPS there is possible coordinate errors meaning dropping it on the wrong building :/

      Yes, Laser designation is still the preferred targeting method (of course it is still possible to lase the wrong target)

      GPS guidance is used when visibility is limited by clouds, smoke, etc..

      New JDAM kit being fitted incorporates both laser and gps guidance.

      Of course, having a guided bomb 'that sucks because it is on GPS' far beats the carpet bombing alternative, yes?

        Anything that lethal needs to be under babysitting of the infantry - real life or game life. I think the USA uses too many weapons without fear of collateral damage. War is hell, we should not unleash it on innocent people.

          i'm all for a bombing barrage....but that's just me, personally i'd like to see cluster bombs added as either a area strike, or as ordinance on bombers on certain maps.

          Bombs dropped from airplanes are cool, i might sound like a 10 year old who just watched victory at sea with his parents but its true.

            I'd like to see one of these babies dropped onto an armored column on Kashan.

                  Cool video, but it sounds like it's being narrated by some computer generated voice...

                    It sounds like a voice you would here narrating one of those "book on tape" CDs.
