The US will test a "killer missile" in the Arctic

America will test the AGM-179A Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) precision-guided missile.

According to a 2020 report by the Pentagon’s Office of Test and Evaluation, the AGM-179A Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) precision-guided air-to-ground missile, which was probably used to kill Iranian IRGC General Qassem Suleimani, will be tested in the Arctic. This is reported by The Drive.

According to the newspaper, the published document states that “testing in extreme cold weather conditions is necessary to assess the ability of the weapons to operate in the increasingly strategic Arctic region.

In addition, during the operation of the AGM-179A JAGM a number of difficulties were discovered with this missile. These are the early detonation of the warhead and the problem of integrating the weapon with the attack helicopter.

On January 3, 2020, the U.S. struck the Baghdad, Iraq, airport, killing IRGC Al-Quds Special Forces commander General Qasem Suleimani. In response, on January 8, the IRGC attacked two American air bases in Iraq.

It became known that the U.S. military received a “killer” of the Russian “Armata”. The U.S. Army received the first two prototypes of light combat vehicles of the “revolutionary” family of ground-based Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) drones. The main task of this RCV family is reconnaissance.
