AGM-154A/B/C JSOW (Joint Standoff Weapon)
JSOW provides aircrew survivability by allowing weapon delivery beyond most enemy air defenses. JSOW air-to-surface glide weapons, in the 1,000-lb class, provides standoff capabilities from 15 nautical miles (low altitude launch) to 40 nautical miles (high altitude launch). The JSOW can be used against a variety of land and sea targets and operates from ranges outside enemy point defenses. The JSOW is a launch and leave weapon that employs a tightly coupled Global Positioning System (GPS)/Inertial Navigation System (INS), and is capable of day/night and adverse weather operations. JSOW is designed to take advantage of new developments in payloads and sensors through the modularity offered in the design of the air vehicle. The JSOW payload bay will accommodate several lethal and non-lethal payloads – from warheads to pamphlets to sensor packages.
Currently, there are three JSOW variants: AGM-154A; AGM-154B; and AGM-154C.
AGM-154A (Baseline JSOW) is now in production. The warhead of the AGM-154A consists of 145 BLU-97/B submunitions. Each bomblet is designed for multi-target in one payload. The bomblets have a shaped charge for armor defeat capability, a fragmenting case for material destruction, and a zirconium ring for incendiary effects.
AGM-154B (Anti-Armor) The warhead for the AGM-154B is the BLU-108/B from the Air Force's Sensor Fuzed Weapon (SFW) program. The JSOW will carry six BLU-108/B submunitions. Each submunition releases four projectiles (total of 24 per weapons) that use infrared sensors to detect targets. Upon detection, the projectile detonates, creating an explosively formed, shaped charge capable of penetrating reinforced armor targets.
AGM-154C (Unitary Variant) The AGM-154C will use a combination of an Imaging Infrared (IIR) terminal seeker and a two-way data link to achieve point target accuracy through aimpoint refinement and man-in-the-loop guidance. The AGM-154C will carry the BLU-111/B variant of the MK-82, 500- pound general purpose bomb, equipped with the FMU-152 Joint Programmable Fuze (JPF) and is designed to attack point targets.
The AGM-154A has completed Engineering and Manufacturing Development and is in production. JSOW is currently flying on the F/A-18 and F-16 aircraft and will soon be flying on the B-52, B-2 and other foreign aircraft.

Mk-83 - обычная бомба.
AGM-62 Walley - чуть ли не самая первая ракета с ТВ наведением. Довольно древняя штука. Год эдак 1967.
AGM-123 - флотский девайс. Mk.83 + Paveway II + ракетный движок.
Mk-60, Mk-65 - морские мины.
