Denel / Tawazun Al Tariq Precision-guided Bomb Kit

With ranges from 40km to 200km, the Al Tariq is a precision-guided bomb kit that can turn ordinary Mk81, Mk82 and Mk83 bombs into standoff weapons. The development was announced in 2012 as a joint venture between Denel and the UAE’s Tawazun Dynamics. Denel previously worked on the system under the name Umbani.

For guidance you have options of GPS and INS, terminal laser or imaging infrared guidance. With the latter accuracy is increased to a circular error of probability of three metres.

The primary customer is the UAE who have received over 600 units by 2016. It has been integrated onto their Mirage 2000-9 Jet Aircraft.
