The Air Force is experimenting with a brand new way to put warheads on foreheads | Task & Purpose

The Air Force is experimenting with delivering munitions on pallets thrown from the back of cargo aircraft as an alternative for additional strike capacity. Airmen from the 412th Test Wing in coordination with Air Mobility Command recently conducted multiple drops of AGM-158 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile cruise missiles from a C-17 Globemaster III. It was done during a testing “on-ramp” for the Air Force’s Advanced Battle Management Family of Systems (ABMS) at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.
