Royal Navy Great Britain fifth generation F-35B Lightning II fighters, squadron of the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, first worked out the use of guided Paveway IV bombs on a small island in the Cape Wrath area off the coast of Scotland.
Paveway is a registered trademark of the Raytheon Company that identifies laser-guided bomb variants, known as LGBs (Laser Guided Bombs). Lockheed Martin became the second supplier of this type of bomb in 2001. The acronym PAVE, Precision Avionics Vectoring Equipment, is also known, which is used to designate other types of laser-supported weapons, including Pave Penny, Pave Spike , Pave Tack and Pave Knife. The name Paveway was originally used to refer to both the weapon and the designator, but later its use became popular to refer only to the weapon.
