MOSCOW, February 27 – RIA Novosti. The US Air Force will receive 400 “capable of reaching Russia” AGM-158B JASSM-ER stealth cruise missiles, Janes writes.
The contract with Lockheed Martin provides for the production of missiles by mid-2025.
In the summer of 2020, the Ukrainian consulting company Defense Express said that the missile armament of the American B-52 Stratofortress strategic bombers could “strike” at Russia without the aircraft entering the S-400 Triumph-controlled airspace.
The article noted that to attack the main strategic objects of Russia in the Arctic and parts of Siberia, it is enough to launch AGM-158B JASSM-ER and AGM-86C CALCM cruise missiles.
