The US Department of Defense signed a contract with Lockheed Martin for the development and production of a Gray wolf subsonic cruise missile, reports RIA News Post press service of the Pentagon.




The transaction value was $ 110 million.

According to the military, the agreement provides for "the design, development, production and testing of cruise missiles that can be used as a prototype for the development of network technologies for joint operations to defeat integrated enemy air defense systems."

The work on the Gray Wolf project will be led by the US Air Force Research Laboratory.

The purpose of this work is to conduct research and development to promote and develop affordable tactical cruise missiles used in network, joint actions aimed at helping to destroy the enemy’s integrated air defense system,
says release.

Under the terms of the contract, work will be carried out in the state of Texas. Their completion is scheduled for December 2022.

        This is a confrontation between a dildo and an unwashed ass. Regardless of the owner’s desire and size, the dildo will be shoved into him anyway ... But he will resist to clog him up badly. )

          With such specialists - they’ll just stick it in! Unfortunately...

        So they did not read this garbage in the kindergarten, or what? Damn it, with whom did my great-grandmother scare me then? Maybe they also don’t know about Emelya? I’ll go to 1000 acres in the Oklahoma region to buy.

        If the US ships will become the data carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic, I’m afraid it will not help them, because until this time, we will already have RCC Zircon.

    And the sale of C400 to a NATO member, Turkey, will be in time for field trials in Texas.

      S400 sale to NATO member - Turkey

      With the current level of relations between Turkey and the United States, this is unlikely. The S-400 will probably cover Russian investments in the Akkuyu nuclear power plant under construction.
      But the concept of creating cruise missiles specializing in the destruction of air defense systems is alarming and very dangerous. True amount of 110 million. too small for a new development. Obviously, the integration of the AGM-88 guidance systems with a relatively short launch range of 100 km to Tomahawks, with a range of 10 times more, will be simple. This will allow aviation to not risk at all until the complete destruction of ground-based air defense systems.

    In light of recent gender changes in the US Army, Pink Ponies are more suitable for them than a gray wolf.
    Since we are talking about cruise missiles, it seems that the Americans are preparing a new generation of tomahawks.
    They will replace the electronic filling, the engine will be modernized, they will try to increase the resistance to RE radiation
    The US military was very upset with the use of axes in Ant-tafa, now they ordered a budget option for modernization, but they called the formidable gray wolf

    Given that they already have a HARM, I think they want something more range and warhead mass.
    Or maybe they are breshet and on the sly they want to develop a supersonic analogue of ours.
