Training bomb designed for bombing exercises from horizontal and dive flight. BDU-33/B has the same ballistic characteristics as the fragmentation-explosive bomb Mk.82, which when filling training imitates. After being dropped from the parent plane, the puma copies the trajectory Mk.82. After the impact, the lighter initiates the smoke detector Mk.4 Mod 3. Its smoke is then driven by the bomb cavity back out of the body BDU-33/B, which allows you to determine the accuracy of the impact. BDU-33/B bombs can be dropped from TER, MER adapters and containers SUU-20/A, SUU-5003/A.

As part of the purchase of training anti-ground ammunition for aircraft L-159A ALCA for a total amount of over 50.5 million bombs, these bombs in the BDU-33D/B variant were also introduced into the Czech Air Force. The contract for the supply of 3,600 pieces of this device was signed on 11.10. 2005. Containers are used in the Czech Air Force for BDU-33D/B bombs SUU-5003/A.
