The AGM-130 is a rocket-powered extended-range derivative of the GBU-15(V)/B electro-optically guided glide bomb. It is basically a glide bomb with a solid-fueled rocket in a strap-on WPU-9/B propulsion section. It can either fly autonomously to the target area using its GPS-aided INS, or receive updates via the data link. The missile is produced by retrofit of existing GBU-15(V)/B bombs. The only carrier of the missile is the F-15E Strike Eagle.
The AGM-130A is equipped with an MK 84 blast-fragmentation bomb. The latest versions are the AGM-130A-11, which features a TV/CCD seeker, and the AGM-130A-12, which is equipped with an Imaging Infrared (IIR) seeker.
