Product Details


The Mk-82 Snakeye is a member of the Paveway II series of laser-guided bombs (LGBs). With a 500-pound general-purpose warhead, this bomb is designed for maximum power and precision. The Snakeye is equipped with a laser guidance kit composed of a computer control group at the front end and an airfoil group at the back. It is guided by illuminating a target with a laser designator on a spot of laser energy reflected from the target. Once an airborne or ground-based target is designated, the canards of the Snakeye react to signals from the control group and steer the weapon to the target. This powerful laser-guided bomb saw action during Operation Desert Storm and performed remarkably well, hitting 88 percent of its targets. It was carried by F-lllFs, F-15Es, and A-6s, mostly against fixed armor, and was the bomb of choice against enemy tanks. This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
