Lockheed Receives Order for Australian Super Hornet Aircraft Missile Integration

1 min read

The U.S. Navy has awarded Lockheed Martin a $49.3 million order to integrate and test the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile systems on the Australian air force’s Super Hornet fighter aircraft.

LRASM integration and testing services for the Australian F/A-18 E/F fleet are expected to conclude in March 2026, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Lockheed designed the system with a penetrator, a blast fragmentation warhead and a communications suite that works to help military operators detect and engage target ships.

Australia requested to procure up to 200 AGM-158C LRASMs from the U.S. government as part of a $990 million foreign military sales deal the State Department approved in February 2020.
