We congratulate your nation on these new bombers however with your current technology level we wonder how you have acquired those munitions. Has another nation supplied you with them?

The AGM-154A (JSOW-A) entered service in 1999

September 2005 - GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb certified for operational test, evaluation

The JASSM project began in 1995

The first JDAM kits were delivered in 1997, with operational testing conducted in 1998 and 1999
