Holy cow that F-4 Phantom carrying them looks beautiful. So good to see them still in service and updated to delivery the latest weaponry, although judging by the HUD it looked like the bomb was being delivered using a simple CCIP system. Would have though there would have been a bit more sophisticated systems to deliver a pin-point bunker busting bomb.

Stop showing footage of the F-4. It's pornography, stop it!

Seriously, I'm really impressed by the accuracy of those stand off weapons. I'm impressed they are able to hit in an area of such a small radius. Do, or will the bunker busting bombs shown in the top video carry a GPS guidance system or any other pin point targeting system?

Mate SOM has;
GPS/INS: Glabal Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System. GPS/INS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
TRN: Terrain Referenced Navigation Terrain Referenced Navigation – Wikipedia
ATR: İmage References Navigation.

Can also update target, add new waypoints, can end the flight (self destruct) while flying to target via datalink.

Also has high resolution IIR seeker for terminal phase.

Here is another video.

Thank you for the video.

That is some seriously advanced weaponry that until now I never knew that Turkey had. It's like a cruise missile but with smart bomb capabilities. What other weapons like this does Turkey have in it's arsenal and what sort of stuff are they planning for the future?

And how many lives can be annihilated with that bomb? I guess that's part of Turkey's program of an all out war against ISIS. But I've read that US will be part of that military activity so there should also be a display of weaponry on the part of the US. Or maybe they would just supply the fighter jets? The article said that the Turkish army will handle the ground control while the US will take care of the air strikes.

A lot of that stuff is pretty beautiful. I liked the look of the laser-guided bombs. I know times have changed and designs have advanced, but it's still nice to see the basic "classic" design of the laser-guided bomb is still being used.
Yeap, they are actually MK-81 and MK-82 bombs.

There are various kits (KGK, HGK, LGK, Teber) to turn them into precision bombs. Same concept used by US...you might have heard the "JDAM" word. It's actually a kit which is being applied to "dumb" bombs.

Many or not one at all. It depends various factors.

These bombs, missiles started to get developed way before ISIS.

But I've read that US will be part of that military activity so there should also be a display of weaponry on the part of the US. Or maybe they would just supply the fighter jets? The article said that the Turkish army will handle the ground control while the US will take care of the air strikes.
As far as i know, Turkey won't join the operations directly. (Maybe some air-strikes along the US fighters) Ground forces will be Turkmen Brigades (6000 strong). They are our kin living in Syria.

Yeah I've heard of the JDAM kits. I was reading recently how the US has tested laser designators on a JDAM bomb, making them LJDAM's. From what I read they are able to target moving objects and have been successfully tested in doing so.

Some were tested with F-15E's against fast moving objects and the bomb was guided to the target from inside the plane. Kinda reminds me of the first guided bombs the Luftwaffe used...

I wonder if we are talking about Brimstone ?

Brimestone is completely different.

Brimestone is a missile where-as the LJDAM's are pretty much dumb bombs, fitted with a JDAM kit and then fitted with a laser seeker on the nose.
