Sensor Fuzed Weapon to Armour South Korean Combat Aircraft

9 April 2010

The South Korean air force's FA-50 light combat aircraft will be armoured with the Sensor Fuzed Weapon (SFW) system to enhance its target acquisition capability.

The weapon system is claimed to accurately detect and defeat a wide range of moving and stationary land and maritime target threats over a wide area with minimal collateral damage.

SFW contains BLU-108 submunition and smart Skeet warheads equipped with dual-mode passive infrared and active laser sensors.

Textron Defense Systems will deliver the systems to the Republic of Korea Air Force.
