Japan bought a batch of Norwegian missiles for F-35A fighters

Winged aviation Kongsberg JSM missile as part of the armament F-35A Lightning II


The Japanese Air Force signed a second contract with the Norwegian company Kongsberg for the supply of an additional batch of JSM (Joint Strike Missile) airborne cruise missiles. The missiles are designed to equip Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II fifth-generation American fighter jets acquired by Japan.

Japan ordered a second batch of the latest Norwegian anti-ship missiles. The first contract was signed in March this year, while the number of missiles purchased, their cost and delivery dates were not disclosed. With regard to the second contract, it is known that the cost of delivery will amount to 49,2 million dollars, other data are also not disclosed. After signing the first contract, Japan became the first buyer of the JSM rocket manufactured by the Norwegian Kongsberg Group.

The new missile is a further development of the modern NSM anti-ship missile manufactured by Kongsberg. The missile is designed for high-precision destruction of ground and surface targets. It is specially designed for placement in the internal compartments of the armament of the F-35A fighter and will later be offered for purchase by the US Air Force.

The length of the 4 rocket is m with a mass of 416 kg, while the high-explosive armor-piercing warhead has a mass of 226 kg and consists of 100-kg charge in an 120-kg titanium case with a programmable fuse. Made by stealth technology. Equipped with a folding wing and a turbojet engine. JSM firing range up to 100 nautical miles on a low-altitude profile and up to 300 nautical miles on a high-altitude flight profile.

The guidance system is multi-channel and includes a dual-band thermal imaging homing head with memory of the target image, a four-channel passive radar detector, an inertial-satellite correction unit, a weather sensor, a laser altimeter, two-way data transmission equipment based on Link 16, which allows for command guidance, redirection of missiles in flight and .d.

In Japan, the rocket will be used on F-35A fighters, which began to enter the country's air force since the beginning of last year. According to the agreement signed in 2011, in the first stage, Japan will receive 42 F-35A fighters, plans for the future include the purchase of 103 fifth-generation fighters, including 42 F-35B modification aircraft.

        Yes to you, nobody promised anything to them! They just threw a “mule” to feel the patriotism of citizens ... It turned out - patriotism is present. The question is closed. That's just to live on these islands, for some reason, none of the "patriots" have any desire.

    But ONLY this missile (from existing SLCMs) has a glider design made using stealth technology.
    Although the flight range is not impressive.

            And without taking into account the hardware? I don’t know, unfortunately, who laid this boldly discussed literary masterpiece, but only in none of the other sources of information on this product is the mass of its warhead more than 125 kg indicated. Less to you is not from me. hi
            PS So I think that it would be most correct to consider the mass of warheads by the mass of explosives, and most correctly, by its TNT equivalent.

    This rocket is becoming very popular, replacing Gappun. Lockheed developed for her this wound GOS, about the same as on JAASM.
    This RCC also began to mount on the trimarans of Littorial ships, in order to strengthen their firepower. Two installations of 4 rockets per ship.

    Japan is the US "whip" in the Asia-Pacific region, as is Israel in the BV.
    At the same time, they are the most reliable and loyal to the United States, to date.
    Anglo-Saxons, as always, are cunningly greyhounds. They rely on those who have the most problems in their region. Who is most disliked by the neighbors. Vassals understand this very well, value it and faithfully serve their "roof", generously paying for their "care". yes

      Tamerlan in the conflicts of vassals and finally everyone, always sided with the weak! Therefore, he has no one who is not a borzoi.
      The Yankees take those who are full of problems with their neighbors, pump them with “steroids”, to such an extent that the vassal themselves will not pull these sterlids, make them dependent on the boss. Opponents of the vassal pull themselves up as they can, but are forced to fear the inflated power of the vassal. The Yankees have the opportunity to scare the vassal by excommunication from steroids, and his opponent by the power of the vassal. And everyone is forced to somehow agree with the United States. Strategist damn

    JSM is an aircraft modification of the NSM (Naval Strike Missile) medium-range anti-ship missile, designed to destroy both surface and ground targets at ranges up to 500 km. A low-flying rocket is able to go around the landscape, and passive systems are used to aim at the target. All this combined with the use of advanced materials makes it difficult to detect JSM by air defense systems.

    Japan - US “Whip” in Asia-Pacific
    This “unsinkable aircraft carrier” can also be a “whip,” just as missiles launch this “whip” in a DPRK. And China has long been not afraid of this “whip”. And the army (self-defense forces) in Japan is really powerful, but how it will behave in real combat conditions is a big question.

      Well, they do not “walk” with fear of “Y-nom”, but create a noise effect in the world community, about the “aggressive regime of the DPRK” - the same as Israel about Iran and Hezbollah. The same tactics, the Anglo-Saxons are now used against Russia. Only the role of the Japanese and Israeli "sufferers" from the "aggressive" neighbors, we are now zealously performed by the Poles and the Baltic states. yes hi

    Thermal imaging with remembering the image of the target, and who needs to transmit the image of the target for 180 km?
    Passive radar, is it going to the radio emission of the target, or is it like someone else who needs a 180km target to be illuminated with an airplane radar?
    Those. the rocket itself doesn’t radiate anything, it is induced in passive mode, all such stealth is launched from the stealth plane, which, by its mind, also flies into the quiet!
    And who should discover the goal? Who should transmit all these images and backlit to these two quiet people? what

        Or a satellite. And also quietly - with the help of infrared, ultraviolet and visible spectrum cameras, as well as radio reconnaissance equipment - if the clouds interfere ... In principle, this is all possible. There is nothing incredible about this. The 21st century and the corresponding electronics are available. And f300 can conduct radar for 35 km. His radar is beautiful. Make short-term contacts to clarify the coordinates of the target and again go into inviz.

            Do you seriously believe in advertising data n036 that it is better than the 35th afar? I have bad news for you. One can only guess about the real parameters of the protein - not a serial radar, which is supported by the Su57 prototypes. The number and power of transceiver modules in the American radar is greater, the processors in the onboard systems are more powerful. And, it seems to me, this is the most powerful of serial aviation radars in general. And squirrel is just a prototype, and not of the best quality.
