Raytheon gains StormBreaker production order
The latest $91.77 million award from the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, announced by the DoD on 25 January, covers the production of all-up rounds and containers.
Already fielded on the F-15E fighter aircraft, StormBreaker is currently also undergoing developmental and operational testing with the F-35B after the USN conducted a weapon drop and network connectivity test in November 2021.
Meanwhile the USN will declare IOC for StormBreaker on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet after operational testing on that aircraft concludes.
