JSOW is all about stealth, survivability, and flexibility – and they say it’s cheaper:
A joint Navy and Air Force program, JSOW is a family of low-cost, air-to- ground weapons that employs an integrated GPS and inertial navigation system to guide them to the target. The JSOW uses a common and modular weapon body capable of carrying various payloads. Its long standoff range, up to 70 nautical miles (approximately 80.5 statute miles), allows
delivery from well outside the lethal range of most enemy air defenses. It is produced for use on the F/A-18, F-16, F-15E, B-2 and B-52 aircraft.
The improved JSOW is hitting the shelves now and could soon be found in locations near you.
