It’s far smarter and more accurate than the traditional idea of a gravity bomb (I presume it’s called that as it’s unpowered).A nuclear gravity bomb though?!?
Su-57 being fitted with nuclear capable hyper-sonic missiles (Kh-59MK2 being tested and X-50 believed by US intelligence to fit the bay anyway) ...
The B61 mod 12:The scariest weapon Block 4 will bring to the F-35 is surely the B-61 Mod 12 nuclear gravity bomb, which has tail fins that can adjust the bomb’s trajectory to strike on average within 30 meters of a designated GPS coordinate. The B-61 has a selectable yield between .3 and 50 kilotons, and has bunker-penetration capabilities. The combination of precision and penetration means it could threaten an adversary’s leadership, command and control facilities, and hardened missile launch sites. As part of a NATO agreement, the U.S. B-61 bombs will also be available for deployment on fellow F-35 operators in NATO.
