Bunker Buster Delivered 16 September, 2019

Israel has completed the delivery of the first batch of a new version of Spice-2000 bunker-buster bombs to the Indian Air Force (IAF). “Israel has started the delivery of the Spice-2000 bombs to India and the first batch of these bombs was received recently,” IAF sources said. The Israeli-based Rafael company developed the bombs, which will be supplied under the emergency procurement contract, worth approximately $ 44 million. The bombs will be delivered along with Mark 84 warheads.

They are a derivative of Popeye air-to-surface missile and are fed with coordinates and satellite pictures of the target to home in and destroy it. The EO/GPS-guided guidance kit can transform unguided bombs into precision-guided bombs.
