    BBC journalist Jonathan Beale has said that the UK will send Paveway IV aerial bombs to Ukraine as part of next military aid package.

    "Latest batch of UK military aid to Ukraine will include Paveway IV bombs," he says, RBC Ukraine reports.

    The Paveway IV bomb is a 230 kg munition equipped with two guidance systems: GPS and laser. It is produced by the UK company Raytheon UK and is the latest version of the Paveway series.

    The Paveway IV can engage targets using GPS, laser targeting, or a combination of both. This gives pilots more flexibility when choosing strike tactics. The aerial bomb has also high accuracy in hitting targets.

    Paveway IV can be used from a variety of combat aircraft, including the Harrier GR9, Panavia Tornado, Eurofighter Typhoon, and F-35 Lightning II.

    Overall, the Paveway IV is an effective and versatile weapon used by the Royal Air Force and likely to be used by the Royal Navy.

    UK planes have recently dropped these bombs during an attack on military facilities of Iranian proxies in Yemen.
