The US Air Force and Navy are working to increase the number of anti-ship missiles launched from the air.

Lockheed Martin has secured a new contract to produce long-range anti-ship missiles AGM-158C LRASM.

The LRASM missile carries a 450 kg warhead, can cover a distance of 930 km, and the AGM-158C is equipped with a Williams International F107-WR-105 turbofan engine. The new missiles have a special shape and outer layer that reduces the radar effect, and are equipped with sensors that allow them to independently detect and locate targets in a certain square, as well as “communicate” with other missiles, and distribute the targets among them.
