The Royal Saudi Air Force ordered Sniper targeting pods from Lockheed Martin (LMT). The Sniper has been purchased by the U.S. military as well as several allies to aid in the designation of targets for air launched munitions. The contract will be worth about $40 million when all options are exercised. This is the second buy of the pods for the RSAF.

The Sniper pod has been purchased in large numbers and has seen some use in Iraq and Afghanistan. The pod includes a laser targeting system and tracker to aid in the use of laser guided weapons.
