Lockheed ‘Enhanced Laser Guided Training Round’ Delivery Reaches 150,000 Mark

Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin has sent out its 150,000th delivery of its live-fire laser-guided bomb training units for U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and other international military customers.

The Enhanced Laser Guided Training Round works to replicate the Paveway II laser-guided weapon systems and aid users to operate LGB capabilities while the tactical weapons inventory stays preserved, Lockheed said Monday.

Joe Serra, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control precision guided systems director, said the company continuously works to refine its production capability in an effort to address customer demand and system costs as it provides ELGTR to drive combat readiness.

The company also designs and manufactures the Paveway II Plus LGB kits and has delivered more than 75,000 kits to its Navy, Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force customers and 20 other international clients, Lockheed said.
