RTX, formerly known as the industry giant Raytheon, has recently clinched a hefty $156 million contract to supply AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapons (JSOW) to Bahrain and the United States Navy.

We’re looking at a total of 47 air-to-ground missiles bound for the Royal Bahraini Air Force, with an additional six set aside as spares for the Navy.

This deal isn’t just about numbers; it’s a strategic move aimed at enhancing precision strike capabilities in an era where every move counts.

Strategic Contract & Global Implications

The AGM-154, a beast of a weapon, hails from the school of Precision Strike Weapons, the first of its kind to buddy up with fourth- and fifth-generation fighter jets.
