IAF Cleared For CBU-105 Sensor-Fused Weapon
The Indian Air Force has been cleared to receive 512 American-built CBU-105 sensor-fuzed munitions worth $257,737,338 more than two years after the Indian government first expressed it interest in procuring the system in September 2008. The IAF will also receive 44 training units. I’d reported on the system being in-principle cleared in March this year, with the final clearance coming in November. Total Buck Rogers weapon.
