Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

The LRASM fills a void Correct. And more specifically, with that program the void was for a medium-long range air-launched passive anti-ship weapon that could leverage the unique passive RF system and NLOS/LOS networking that DARPA and the USN had developed. The MST-TLAM didn't even exist at that t...

Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

Yes nothing to do with the TLAM being ineffective in future anti ship role This is getting quite absurd .

It is not rocket science. The US Navy wanted an Air Launched capability for its carrier air wing. The Tomahawk isn't an air-launched weapon (and not on the Rhino). The JASSM-ER is an air-launched weapon.

The USN is going LRASM because it needed an AL-weapon that could house a USN+DARPA developed/funded passive RF seeker. The Tomahawk cannot be air-launched and most definitely not by a Super Hornet.
