      Sounds like it has a very high fuel fraction. The airframe and avionics might add up to what, about 700lb? Maybe even less than that, considering it has a lightweight composite construction. If we assume a generous 1000lb, plus the 2000lb warhead, then that still leaves 2000lb of fuel

        i seriously doubt those are more than 500lbs. 200lbs sounds more reasonable to me.

        fractions are actually objectively more accurate than decimals, which require additional significant digits when dividing (this can be a problem if you're doing real work and not filling out a homework sheet).

      The 5,000 lb version was an ancient proposal which never went anywhere and looked like this. The ones actually getting built are are the AGM-158B-2 and the AGM-158D which both increase the range meaningfully without changing the form factor. We're not exactly sure how much the range is now. The original goal was for a 1,000nmi range for JASSM-D but that got toned down a bit. The JASSM program is such a naming clusterfrick that it's hard to keep track of.

                I'm not denying anything. I'm stating the fact that SI was officially adopted in 1975 as an alternative measurement system to USCI. Unless you're saying that colloquial use of the local customary measurement system determines the status of 'adopted'. In that case, the map is still wrong in which case both Canada and UK both still use and teach Imperial.

                in britain and canada, SI units are official. unlike in america where they use terms like "preferrable" and "voluntary"

                It established metric as the preferred alternative to USCS, which was then later downgraded by Reagan in 82 to just the Federal government itself. If the government's codified use of a system isn't official, what is?

                where did they completely codify it officially? i am not talking about "voluntarily" and "prefferably". also how can a country be using the metric system when institutions and everyone uses imperial units. i mean imperial units in the united states are everywhere: from road signgs, sports, measuring heiight, etc. very few people know anything about the metric system at all

                And I'll go back to the earliest iteration of the US officially adopting SI as a concurrent system that I know off the top of my head with the Metric Act of 1866, or the 'Kasson Act' which gave legal protection and recognition of metric in the USA. I think we're arguing past each other, the USA adopts Metric in some form or another every 20 years or so. It's just impossible to actually implement.

                The laws are neither vague or unofficial. As written both USCI and SI are official systems of measurement in the USA. While neither have been made the exclusive system of measurement, there's a strong cultural preference for USCI.

      morons have an inch. But they need it smaller So they have half an inch. Then 1/4, 1/8th or maybe 5/16th and 9/32th. Then they need to subract a part, so 9/32th - 3/16th.. Fractions suck dick.
      morons have an inch. But they need really tiny things. So they work in thousands of an inch. So they can work "metric". And often they need half-a-thousands. But they need decimal tables to convert between fractions and thousands. Because they are morons.

      Chands don't need fractions, because chads have a meter. If they go long, they say km, they know it's just a 1000 meters. Just moving that decimal point, nothing to it. Not like mile and inches.
      Chads in daily life need to measure something smaller. They measure in cm, because it's a good size for daily life. 100 cm make up a meter and 1 cm make up 10 mm. Nothing to it.
      Chads need to measure something smaller, they use mm. If they want to measure something really small, they use µm. 1000 µm are a mm. Just moving that decimal point, nothing to it.
      Chads know that one cubic meter is 1000 liters, which also weights 1000 kg if water. Makes calulating loads and shit super easy.

      Chads also know what inches are because they need to handle the morons. They know an inch is 25.4mm. hey like 3/4 inch, because it's very close to 19mm. They know that one thousand of an inch is obviously 25.4 µm and half a thousand is close to 10 µm and their micrometer is good for 2 µm, which is a bit less than 1/10s of a thousands of an inch.

        Yes Here in the US they tried to institute the metric system in the schools here for a 2nd time when they instituted the "no child left behind program".
        The black kids were having trouble with fractions (Sub 80 IQ's) and someone had the same idea as you... Muh, Fingers and Toes Mo Fukka.

          Then on what grounds is it huge. It’s pretty small for a cruise missile with great range

      It's smaller than the Storm Shadow/SCALP in every dimension.
