Armement Air-Sol Modulaire AASM

Just one AASM is more expensive than a FAB-3000 , FAB-1500 and FAB-500 combined.

This has been done only to carry under half the explosive mass than all three FAB variants when comparing with the AASMs own variants.

Whilst the AASM uses a rocket motor to hit a target at a max range of 70Kilometres, A FAB-1500 achieves the exact same range by using a smart kit which uses glide wings and satellite guidance.

Why is the European arms industry so stupid?

        You’re not doing yourself any favors Ramdeep. Weapons are expensive because they work, when you compare the functionality to cost it’s well worth investment. Look at Iran’s Shaheeds which Russia is heavily reliant upon for terror strikes on civilian infrastructure: during Iran’s recent chimp-out only half actually actually got into the air; effectively eliminating half of their stock to be repaired.

          Making something intended to be disposable aka a bomb too reliable is a ridiculous and flawed philosophy. Western media call artillery shells incredibly rare, incredibly expensive, and incredibly scarce. This is because the process to making them in western countries is incredibly laboursome and expensive via X-rays, material sourcing, gunpowder making.
          Disposable weapons made excessive reliable actually harms the logistics of warfare and this is why Ukraine is suffering. They are suppose to be disposable, when the Nazis built tanks to last a century they ran out of steel in less than half a decade. Go figure right?

    The idiots who made this apparently hope to bring it's price down from $300000 to just $80000
    They would likely be able to put glide wings onto it too and for a marginal cost since it already has it's guidance system.

      >I don't understand scale of production.

      They've already slashed the unit cost down to 120,000 euros so 80,000 isn't out of the realm of possibility. Plus, it looks like France is perfectly willing to pay a premium in order to ensure they have their own domestically built weaponry.

      And let's not forget that it's not just the guidance kit, but also an extra rocket booster to increase range.

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Paveways and JDAMs were already mature systems that were in mass production by the time AASM was developed. AASM just has smaller production runs which inflates the cost per unit because scale of production hasn't kicked in yet. Though obviously the French see the cost as worth it to maintain their own domestic weaponry.

      Also the 300,000 euro number is woefully out of date, that was how much it cost when it was first adopted in 2007. They've managed to bring it down to 120,000 euros.
