The US Navy (USN) has scrapped plans to develop a powered, extended range (ER) variant of the Raytheon AGM-154 Joint Stand-Off Weapon (JSOW).

Revealing the decision in the fiscal year (FY) 2022 budget request, the navy will instead procure a variant of Lockheed Martin's AGM-158B Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile Extended Range (JASSM-ER) cruise missile to meet both strike and offensive anti-surface warfare (OASuW) requirements. This so-called Navy JASSM will also leverage from the AGM-158C Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM), itself a JASSM-ER derivative.
