The total amount allocated to missile capability purchasing over the next fiscal year will be $6.2 billion and will comprise additional funds for several programmes.

The US Army announced this week a $185.9 billion budget proposal to cover its activities over the FY2025. While the request reduced resources for the purchase of aircraft, weapons and tracked combat vehicles, it increased funds for missile capabilities by 62% compared to the FY2024 proposition (with continuing resolution adjustments).

The total amount allocated to missiles for the next fiscal year will be $6.2 billion and comprised additional funds for several programmes including the Precision Strike Missile (PRSM), Mid-Range Capability (MRC), Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon, Javelin anti-tank weapons and Guided MLRS Rocket (GMLRS).
