A great combat simulation video demonstrating the capability of the US Military Long Range Anti Ship Missile against Russian navy ships. The Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) is a stealthy anti-ship cruise missile under development for the US Navy by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The LRASM is intended as a replacement for the US Navy’s current anti-ship missile, the Harpoon, which has been in service since 1977. Various launch platform configurations are being evaluated. LRASM is anticipated to pioneer autonomous targeting capabilities for anti-ship missiles.

The Navy was authorized by the Pentagon to put the LRASM into limited production as an operational weapon in February 2014, as an urgent capability stop-gap solution to address range and survivability problems with the Harpoon anti-ship missile. Another reason for the authorization was to prioritize defeating enemy warships, which has been neglected since the end of the Cold War, but taken on importance with the modernization of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy. The Navy will hold a competition for the Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare (OASuW)/Increment 2 anti-ship missile as a follow-on to LRASM to enter service in 2024.
