A Paveway will always be more accurate and you can hit a moving target. Equipped with the … Paveway is a series of laser-guided bombs (LGBs). RE: Paveway vs JDAM Agreed, but allowing the pilot to set the coordinates for JDAM in flight is entirely different from having to use a laser designator.

For CAS it would be prefered over the JDAM if no one is shooting at you and the weather is useable.

The Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) is a guidance kit that converts unguided bombs, or "dumb bombs", into all-weather precision-guided munitions.JDAM-equipped bombs are guided by an integrated inertial guidance system coupled to a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, giving them a published range of up to 15 nautical miles (28 km). You will hear comments by pilots/fraggers saying they like the way the GBU-12 version of the Paveway..."flies". Pave or PAVE is sometimes used as an acronym for precision avionics vectoring equipment; literally, electronics for controlling the speed and direction of aircraft. If precision bombing was finally to become a reality throughout the Air Force, a new approach would be needed. Perhaps the coordinates could be data-linked to the pilot from a Predator or Global Hawk or J-STARS? Does anyone know irl why the usaf and navy use both jdam and paveway kits for the dumb bombs. jdam vs paveway - 12/4/2019 4:36:18 AM Lassekongo .

I know lgb is generelly for moving targets but surely there has to be a bigger reason now that both jdam and paveway series use both laser and gps. Paveway IV is a highly accurate, state-of-the-art, precision guided bomb. …
