For the younger folks, the website hosting said video is rated R.

I'll look around for the video of the GBU 28 that shows a cut away of it entering a bunker. It doesn't deform the bomb at all as it goes through the dirt / rocks / reinforced concrete, pretty neat.

From FAS:

The Guided Bomb Unit-28 (GBU-28) is a special weapon developed for penetrating hardened Iraqi command centers located deep underground. The GBU-28 is a 5,000-pound laser-guided conventional munition that uses a 4,400-pound penetrating warhead. The bombs are modified Army artillery tubes, weigh 4,637 pounds, and contain 630 pounds of high explosives. They are fitted with GBU-27 LGB kits, 14.5 inches in diameter and almost 19 feet long. The operator illuminates a target with a laser designator and then the munition guides to a spot of laser energy reflected from the target.
