I'm not certain that's an M118. Might be a Mk.84 2,000lb bomb.

M118s were chiefly used by F-105s for flak suppression. The bomb created a literally stunning half-mile shockwave.

Agreed on that being a Mk.84. The nose/body is too sleek/pointy to be a M118.

Doesn't mean it's correct though. Just google M118 and Mk.84, they don't look a like. Squadron Signal books, especially older ones, have errors (and never rely on their illustrations for accuracy).
