Lockheed Martin and Raytheon/Boeing have both released video of successful missile launch tests during the technology demonstration phase of the competition for the joint air to ground missile (JAGM) contract. Both test shots were fired from static launchers positioned 16km away from an 8m by 8m target board, which is the maximum range for a helicopter-fired JAGM. Contract award is expected early next year. Meanwhile, you can compare the missiles for yourself:

    Both look impressive to me. 16k’s from a static ground based launcher with a tri-mode seeker and an ability to be operated by most tactical aircraft in-service, should make this weapon a very attractive option in years to come…

    I hope I’m not being overly picky in pointing out that the target panel appears to be more like 8×8 feet rather than 8×8 meters.
