Lockheed Martin has won a $134.7 million modification contract to supply Joint-Air-to-Ground Missiles (JAGMs) to the US Army.
The target for completion of the assigned work is set for February 28, 2023, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.
The JAGM will be used on joint rotary-wing and unmanned aircraft systems of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps. The air-to-surface missiles are being developed to replace the current air-launched BGM-71 TOW, AGM-114 Hellfire, and AGM-65 Maverick missiles.
According to the US Army, the JAGM utilizes a multimode seeker to provide precision point and fire-and-forget targeting against a variety of countermeasures. A multipurpose warhead provides lethal effects against a range of target types, from armored vehicles, thin-skinned vehicles and maritime patrol craft to urban structures and field fortifications.
In what appears to be preparation for a large scale attack by missiles and drones, Russia has deployed more than 30 Pantsir-S air defence systems which can detect and attack low-flying hostile projectiles. To date, [in service with the Syrian Arab Army] more than 30 anti-aircraft missile-cannon Pantsir-S systems have been deployed in Syria
