LT-2 Thunder

Country of Origin: China


The Leiting-2 (LT-2) Thunder is China's first laser-guided bomb. The weapon is similar to the Russian KAB-500L, and it may be a reverse-engineered version of that bomb.

The LT-2 uses a semi-active laser-guidance system, requiring a separate laser designator to illuminate the target. It can be guided by airborne or ground-based laser designators.

The LT-2 features four control surfaces at both the head and tail of the weapon.


The bomb is in service and is available for export.
