 LongShot
LongShot is basically a wing adapter kit, and it attaches to just about any bomb in the inventory as long as it doesn't weigh more than about 1,000 pounds.
LongShot would, essentially, allow customers to convert an existing dumb bomb inventory into a smart standoff weapon, so it would provide both guidance and navigation to a target and also allow the pilot to release the weapon from a standoff distance to protect both himself and his aircraft from surface-to-air threats.
The purpose of LongShot on the laser-guided bomb is simply to provide it long legs, so that once LongShot delivers it to a target area, it releases it, and the bomb just thinks it has been released from an aircraft and goes about its business.

It is a refreshing return to the original sound of Hip Hop: A blend of jazz grooves with acoustic live instruments and poetic and introspective lyrics that defy the “bling-bling” themes of contemporary mainstream rap, instead reflecting the realities of a childhood spent in Chicago’s gritty innercity.

From organic live jazz sounds to Chicago-style uptempo, rapidfire deliveries, LongShot is never overshadowed by the many established artists that contributed to the album, and offers something for every genre of rap listener.
