Not without reducing your payload. JASSM ER only has about 2/3 the range of Tomahawk with the same warhead. A better question would be "how much range could we get with a stretched JASSM". You could give it a 4' stretch and still fit in a Mk41 VLS. That's a lot of fuel.TomS said:To judge by the comments ("That next-generation weapon could be an upgraded Tomahawk or could be another weapon,”) Tomahawk Block V or equivalent might be the solution here. But after this long with the same basic airframe, it probably does make some sense to look around and see if there are alternatives. Can you get Tomahawk range in a JASSM-based airframe, for example?
