Kongsberg and Boeing plan to conduct wind tunnel testing for the Block II Super Hornet early next year. 

“Kongsberg is proud to work with Boeing to offer JSM capability on F-18. The completion of the fit-check on F/A-18 F further validates the JSM compatibility with existing fleet of aircraft and provides a near term strong capability against advanced threats,” says Harald Ånnestad, President Kongsberg Defence Systems. 

The Joint Strike Missile (JSM) is a 5th generation long-range stealthy precision strike missile for sea- and land targets, designed as a long-range, low-observable stand-off weapon able to engage high threat land and naval targets.
