    US Marine Capt Andrew Sanchez with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 211 conducts pre-flight checks on an F-35B Lightning II armed with a Guided Bomb Unit 49 (GBU-49) in the Western Pacific Ocean on September 12th, 2021. The GBU-49 is a laser and GPS-guided bomb effective across various conditions and against many types of moving or stationary targets. VMFA-211, deployed aboard HMS Queen Elizabeth as part of the United Kingdom’s Carrier Strike Group 21, became the first squadron to employ the GBU-49 from a Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier.
