Lockheed-Martin has given its latest laser-guided bomb a name — Paragon. The munition has been tested successfully on the F/A-18 Super Hornet, according to Lockheed-Martin. It can be launched farther from the target than other systems of its ilk, and can be delivered at a lower price than competitors as well, the company stated. More tests are planned for Paragon this year, involving both the F/A-18 and the Air Force’s F-16 Fighting Falcon.
