Citing lessons drawn from the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, The Pentagon seeks to beef up the US military forces arsenal from cutting-edge munitions to powerful, long-range missiles.

Procurement plans include doubling the production of Long-Range Anti-Ship Missiles (LRASM) and the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM), the two most in-demand weapons of the armed forces.

Long-range weapons have grown remarkably in recent years and have become a must-have on the battlefield. Furthermore, war simulations have shown how strategically significant these missiles are, particularly in the event of a Chinese invasion of the Taiwan Strait.

Given its substantial contribution, wargames also noted how these potent and highly capable ammunitions would be among the first to run out of stock. As a result, the Pentagon has urged expanding the production line.
