Boeing and Kongsberg Defence Systems have completed a check of the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) fitted to an F/A-18F Super Hornet to ensure that the weapon is compatible with the aircraft’s external pylons. The test brings the JSM one step closer to achieving Super Hornet compatibility, Boeing said in a statement. The JSM, which is being designed and built by Kongsberg, is a long-range, low-observable stand-off weapon intended to engage land and sea targets.
