    It's neat to see a AShM that can actually do a proper swarm attack, unlike the bullshit that soviets spewed about Granit that was never even shown off in testing.

        considering that the granit has never demonstrated this capacity even during testing, it's highly unlikely that it even exists in russia. besides, it's a terrible idea when a generic popup search is more efficient and less likely to result in a missile kill

        Supposedly they fly high until they start getting hit by radar then go low for the terminal phase.

        yes, it takes advantage of the inverse square law regarding radar transmission

      And it's small enough that it's suitable for swarm attacks. 4 per plane means a squadron could plausibly take on a small fleet.

        "Can be". VL-LRASM hasn't been procured yet, and the program to buy it (OASuW 2) has been delayed for years due to budget cuts and now appears to be a casualty of the hypersonic meme--the competition was *supposed* to be between LRASM, JSM, and an upgraded Tomahawk, but now there's this HALO thing that might or might not even work, and it's sucking all of the budget and schedule out of the room.

            You are correct. I believe they also use passive terminal guidance which complicates defending against them with soft kill defenses and detecting their presence passively (read: without turning on your air search radars which also broadcast your location). Aught to be a pretty cost effective and lethal addition to the fleet.

            lets pretend for sake of argument that S-400 achieves 100% hard kill against LRASM. Are there any warships equipped with S-400 as their air defense system?
            If yes, they would be shwacked by attack subs early in a war with the US if they took to blue waters.
            If no, the plan becomes what? keep your entire navy within the coverage envelope of shore based S-400s? not a good look in Total war.

        They somehow came up with a way for JDAMs to engage moving targets without needing course corrections from the launching aircraft or some kind of seeker on the bomb. That's the real impressive part.

              You're misunderstanding. The F-35 doesn't have to carry them. In fact, you can drop a pallet of them off the back of a C-130 and they can launch, link up, recieve orders, and search and destroy. The F-35 just acts as a controller.
