Raytheon and Boeing have successfully completed test flights of a Joint Air to Ground Missile (JAGM) fixed wing launcher and instrumented representative missiles on a US Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet.
Boeing says the test flights are the first step in qualifying the missile for the Super Hornet. “The JAGM fixed-wing launcher is based on the BRU-33 and previous Boeing launchers, which are in service today,” said Carl Avila, director of Boeing’s Advanced Weapons and Missile Systems in a statement.
JAGM has been designed to replace Hellfire and Maverick air-to-surface weapons in the US inventory.
