LRASM set to Achieve EOC with U.S. Navy’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet

The next generation Long-Range Anti-Ship Missiles (LRASM) is set to achieve early operational capability with the F/A-18E/F by the end of the month, Naval News learned from NAVAIR, bringing new capabilities to U.S. Naval Air Forces.

“Testing on F/A-18 began last year and EOC is planned by end of month” a NAVAIR public affairs officer told Naval News when asked about an update on the LRASM program.

The AGM-158C LRASM achieved early operational capability with the U.S Air Force B-1B in December 2018, ahead of schedule. A single USAF B-1B Lancer can carry and deploy up to 24 LRASM.

I can also assume that just 2 B-1s carrying 40 LRASM each would be sufficient to eliminate an entire Chinese CBG including its escorts. Making assumption is easy. Such an assumption is reasonable because the LRASM is VLO, is able to operate with ESM to avoid detection, and can cooperatively attack in swarm. The Chinese escorts would have no chance at all.

Oh plenty of time to read it. They don’t have the Senate which is the President’s own party and with a good economy this is pure theater.

B1 was meant to be a nuclear penetration bomber. In the last decades we used her as a CAS bird had her spend her time loitering waiting for calls to act. A swing wing bird isn’t meant for that.
