Royal Jordanian air force to get more Sniper pods

The Royal Jordanian Air Force is set to get 10 more Lockheed Martin AN/AAQ-33 Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods.
The Sniper pods were the ones fitted to UK Royal Air Force (RAF) Harrier GR.9 ground-attack aircraft under an urgent operational requirement to give them the capability to designate targets for their Paveway IV laser-guided bombs to support operations in Afghanistan.
The pods became surplus to the RAF's requirements after it retired its Harriers in 2010 as it uses the Rafael Litening III pod on its Tornado and Typhoon jets.
