- BLU-109 : 2000 pound class warhead designed as a hard target penetrator; ballistically identical to Mark 84 bomb, BLU-111, and BLU-126 so can accept Joint Direct Attack Munition and PAVEWAY laser guidance kits
- BLU-111 : Navy-developed equivalent of Mark 8x series conventional bomb, with same ballistics but filled with the insensitive high explosive, PBXN-109; may have heat-resistant paint and other safety enhancements
- BLU-116 : 2000 pound class U.S. Air Force Advanced Unitary Penetrator warhead, a hard target penetrator with ballistics identical to the BLU-109 but with greater penetration; usually implemented as laser-guided bomb
- BLU-117 : Hard target penetrator of the 2000 pound class, compatible with the Mark 83 bomb, filled with PBXN-109 and with a thermal protective coating
- BLU-119 : 2000 pound warhead of the CrashPad design, intended for fast defeat of chemical weapons and biological weapons; uses PBXN-109 insensitive high explosive
- BLU-126 : Low Collateral Damage Bomb; carbon fiber nonfragmenting bombcase and reduced PBXN-109 explosive filler when compared to BLU-111 with which it has identical ballistics and compatibility with Joint Direct Attack Munition and PAVEWAY laser guidance kits
