SEOUL, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- South Korea has developed missiles with global positioning systems that can hit a target day or night, the state arms development agency said Monday.

The Agency for Defense Development said the 500-pound bombs can strike objects that are hidden behind other structures, Yonhap news agency reported.

The devices were developed in the past five years with a budget of $378 million, the agency said, to improve the capabilities of fighter jets.

The bombs can also be carried by older model jets such as the F-4 and F-5, the agency said.

Each missile costs about $95,000.
