US Air Force will receive 400 ‘reaching Russia’ stealth missiles
MOSCOW, (BM) – The US Air Force will receive 400 AGM-158B JASSM-ER stealth cruise missiles “capable of reaching Russia” by mid-2025, the American edition Janes reported.
It is noted that the contract concluded with Lockheed Martin provides for the production of missiles by mid-2025, RIA Novosti reports.
In the summer of 2020, the Ukrainian consulting company Defense Express announced that the missile armament of the US Air Force’s B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers could “strike” at Russia without the aircraft entering the airspace controlled by the S-400 Triumph air defense system.
Military expert Vladislav Shurygin said that the shortest distance between the United States and Russia is over the North Pole; the American military has been practicing striking through it for more than 70 years.
Meanwhile, a military expert and editor-in-chief of the National Defense magazine Igor Korotchenko are confident that Russia has reliable protection against US strategic aviation attacks across the North Pole.
