    Probably not worth it

      Although it's possible we'll see an air launched PrSM as part of the Stand in Attack Weapon program.

      For what purpose?

      why not
      why not just use a cruise missile

      I assume you mean "from", and the answer is yes. it wasn't worth it. functional militaries use cruise missiles for the kind of jobs needed.
      There's a reason only Russia (genuinely almost forgot that China is testing them too) bothers with air-launched ballistic missiles and spoiler alert, it's not because it's better than alternatives.

      >Did they every try attaching one to air airplane?
      I don't believe so. Before the USAF withdrew from JTACMS (thus redesignating the missile ATACMS), there was an air-launched variant under development but it got axed rather early on in favor of ALCMs.

      Ballistic missiles are faster and can be more survivable in some circumstances. Just look at when the Russians are using Kinzal vs Kalibr and the like.

      >The Douglas GAM-87 Skybolt (AGM-48 under the 1962 Tri-service system) was a hypersonic air-launched ballistic missile (ALBM) developed by the United States during the late 1950s. The basic concept was to allow US strategic bombers to launch their weapons from well outside the range of Soviet defenses, as much as 1,000 miles (1,600 km) from their targets. To do this in an air-launched form, a lightweight thermonuclear warhead was needed. Initially, the W47 from the Polaris missile was selected, but it was later replaced by the W59 from the Minuteman missile.
      >Testing began in 1962 and was initially marked by a string of failures. These failures, along with a lack of mission after the successful development of submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs), led to its cancellation in December 1962.[1] The UK had decided to base its entire 1960s deterrent force on Skybolt, and its cancellation led to a major disagreement between the UK and US, known today as the "Skybolt Crisis". This was resolved by a series of meetings that led to the Royal Navy gaining the UGM-27 Polaris missile and construction of the Resolution-class submarines to launch them.

      Extended range.
      I'm gonna play with some math and see:
      x = V0.t.cos(Θ)
      y = V0.t.sin(Θ) - ½.g.t2

      t = 2.V0.sin(Θ)/g

        It's their only long range bomber, still in production too.

        foolish western dogs, soon you will fall to your knees before the might of the next generation of bombers!

        any day now.

      that makes no sense.
      subsonic cruise missiles are too slow and the target will have moved.

            that wasn't me replying to yuo, it was a different anon.
            anyway I'm not sure what you want me to say, if subsonic cruise missiles were so unsuited to the job then why are they the most widely used? what targets do you think they're used on that can't be hit by either satellite guidance or the missiles built-in target recognition?
