The Paveway II Plus LGB kits incorporate an upgraded laser guidance package, significantly improving overall system performance and precision.

Lockheed Martin is focused on continuous improvement in our current and emerging line of precision guided systems so we can deliver exceptional capability at the best value to the warfighter,” said Joe Serra, precision guided systems manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “This contract extends U.S. Air Force production at our Archbald, Pennsylvania, facility through first quarter 2016.

The Paveway II Plus LGB kit consists of a MAU-209C/B computer control group containing the electronic guidance system and an airfoil group to provide lift and stability to the weapons in standard GBU-10 MK-84 (2,000 lb.), GBU-12 MK-82 (500 lb.) and GBU-16 MK-83 (1,000 lb.) series configurations.
