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.
