Flight Testing Underway for LRASM, F/A-18

An F/A-18E/F Super Hornet carries a model of the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) during initial flight testing Nov. 3 at NAS Patuxent River. The program's flight test team is conducting the first phase of airworthiness testing using this mass simulator vehicle to evaluate inflight structural loads of the LRASM on the F/A-18 E/F.  When operational in 2018, LRASM will provide flexible, long-range, advanced, anti-surface capability against high threat maritime targets.
