    Navy's First Network-Enabled Weapon Ready for Fleet Operations

    PATUXENT RIVER, Md. — The Navy’s first air-to-ground network-enabled weapon, JSOW C-1, has been delivered to the fleet after achieving initial operational capability in early June.

    Rear Adm. DeWolfe Miller, director of Air Warfare, made the announcement in a June 20 Naval Air System Command release after the C1 version of the Joint Standoff Weapon completed operational testing against land and sea targets, saying this capability will provide more lethality and accuracy to the Navy’s already very capable deployed air wings around the world.

    With weapons like JSOW C-1, LRASM and Tomahawk and SM-6 being converted to anti-ship weapons, the Navy looks to be taking "distributed lethality" seriously. It's nice seeing their vision turn to reality.

    When we look at how to deal with the Chinese threat distributed lethality is the only solution. I wonder what the Chinese will come up with to defeat this doctrine? They can't rely solely on missiles, they will need to build 3 aircraft carriers to try and attack all of our assets, as long as they don't do that we still have the advantage.
