Bomb Meets BRU

November 2014

The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II joint strike fighter carries its weaponry internally to reduce the chance of detection by bad-guy radars. The Raytheon Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) II was designed to fit inside the restricted dimensions of the internal weapons bays on "stealth" aircraft. The Joint Miniature Munitions Bomb Rack Unit (BRU) holds the SDBs and forcibly ejects them to ensure that they clear the aircraft. (This Aerocaturetm was created for the joint SDB/BRU development/test team.)

Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?), and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your order for the Aerocatures™ Calendar now!
