Sounds like the navy wants Tomahawk sized, which can be made compatible with existing attack boats and basically shares infrastructures with other services.  Basically US version of Zircon but with tighter constraint.

Doesn't sound like that to me at all.

Me either.  Bet it ends up KEI-sized and stuffed in a module on Virginias.

From Inside Defense

USAF accelerates GBSD schedule, reduces estimated EMD cost

The milestone B decision and engineering and manufacturing development phase for the Air Force's new land-based nuclear deterrent are each scheduled to begin about three months earlier than expected.
-----------------------------------------------
Hope they build a larger missile for future upload or new type of RV, BGV/MaRV??, payload flexibility.

Just to remember: In this thread, we aren't talking about wrong identified , or even
"fake" aircraft, as listed here https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,26358.0.html

The theme are designs or projects, that were either "planned" just with the intention to
keep the design staff busy, or at least projects, that were stalled and so kept alive beyond
their "natural" death.

FTG-11 salvo test against ICBM conducted yesterday.  2nd interceptor is launched well after the first has cleared the area.

Edit:  Lead GBI destroyed the target and trailing GBI selected the next ‘most lethal object’ and also hit.

What could the Chinese learn from operating a reactor on a ship,  that they can't from operating one on a submarine?
