Lockheed Martin announced it has recently delivered the 2,000th JASSM (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile) cruise missile to the U.S. Air Force (USAF).

Completed under the 12th production lot, the 2,000th missile is a baseline JASSM. Lot 12, which began production in January 2016, includes 150 baseline JASSM cruise missiles and 60 JASSM-Extended Range (ER) missiles.

Recent program milestones include a USD116 million contract option for JASSM-ER and a contract from the USAF to support additional integration of JASSM onto the Polish Air Force Lockheed Martin F-16C/D Fighting Falcon fighter jet.

Armed with a penetrating blast-fragmentation warhead, JASSM and JASSM-ER can be used in all weather conditions. These cruise missiles employ an enhanced digital anti-jam GPS receiver and infrared seeker to dial into specific points on targets.
