The 1,000-pound Razon bomb was a remotely controlled, radio-guided bomb originally developed for use in World War II. Despite some early problems, B-29 bombardiers managed to destroy 15 bridges with Razon bombs by the end of 1950, when the much larger 12,000-pound Tarzon bomb came into use.
Although the USAF had mixed results in Korea with the Razon and Tarzon bombs, they foreshadowed the later widespread use of precision-guided weapons.
