Watch The Weapon Product Of A Joint Venture Between The U.S. Navy and Air Force, At Work
The U.S. Navy and the U.S. Air Force are the most dominant military forces in their respective branches. Together, they make some really nice toys. Toys like the AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon or JSOW. The product of a joint venture between the two to deploy a standardized, medium-range precision guided weapon, especially for engagement of defended targets from outside the range of standard anti-aircraft defenses, the JSOW increases aircraft survivability and minimizes friendly losses.
The JSOW is currently in the fleet and deploy with Navy ships. Additionally, it has been sold to Poland and Turkey for use with their F-16 fighters. The AGM-154 is intended to provide a low cost, highly lethal glide weapon with a standoff capability. The JSOW can be used against a variety of land targets and operates from ranges outside enemy point defenses. Badass if you ask me.
What would the U.S. do with weapons like this if Turkey breaks relationships with NATO? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
