Photos directly below were taken at the Tulsa State fair in the Oklahoma Air National Guard booth that had this GBU-38 “JDAM” training ordnance on display. The GBU-38 is a 500 pound version of the JDAM which was recently introduced in the war on terrorism. It packs a smaller punch than the GBU-31 (2000 pound) JDAM which will save the collateral damage caused by the larger ordinance.
The GBU-38 JDAM is used by the Navy, Marines and the one shown is used by the United States Air Force.
