Army Receives New Long-Range Missiles

The delivery is part of a major modernization program.

The U.S. Army announced it has received delivery of the first Precision Strike Missiles. These will replace the legacy Army Tactical Missile System. 

The Army stated, “The delivery of the Precision Strike Missile Increment 1 Early Operational Capability missiles follows successful production qualification testing in November at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.”

The precision missile system is one of 24 major modernization programs the Army has undertaken. 

“The Precision Strike Missile will provide Joint Force commanders with a 24/7, all-weather capability that will counter the enemy’s ability to conduct combat maneuver and air defense operations,” Army Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology Assistant Secretary Doug Bush stated. “The rapid development and delivery of this capability is a prime example of the Army’s aggressive use of new acquisition authorities from Congress that allow us to move at much greater speed to get improved equipment to Soldiers.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Assistant Secretary Bush as he oversees the Army’s Office of Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology.
  • For wisdom for Secretary Wormuth as she oversees the Army branch of the U.S. military.
  • For Secretary Austin to head the U.S. Armed Forces ethically and honestly.
