Boeing Delivers Final Focused Lethality Munition to USAF

Boeing delivered the 500th Focused Lethality Munition (FLM) to the U.S. Air Force this month, completing the contract for the low-collateral-damage weapon.

Boeing delivered the 500th Focused Lethality Munition (FLM) to the U.S. Air Force this month, completing the contract for the low-collateral-damage weapon 100 percent on time and on cost.

FLM, a derivative of the Small Diameter Bomb, uses a multiphase-blast explosive compound along with a carbon-fiber-composite warhead case to minimize fragmentation, as well as an anti-jam Global Positioning System aided by inertial navigation. The guided weapon provides a standoff range of more than 60 nautical miles to protect aircrews engaging threats in combat. The Air Force has dropped 23 FLMs in combat operations and has a 23 for 23 mission-success rate.
