New to the USAF, that is.  It appear that the USAF is going to base a new missile for use in its next generation aircraft on the current USN Anti-radar ARM.  In this case there seems to be some actual cooperation between the services to make a weapon usable by both.  Hopefully it will save some money as well.

  1. “The USAF’s latest budget proposal asks for nearly $163 million in additional funding to continue this developmental work.”

    $163 Million. Additional. So an F-35 with “USAF” painted on the side can use the same missile as an F-35 with “NAVY” painted on the side. Procurement is broken.
