Defense/Australia – More work needed but precision strike missile a good fit for the Australian Army (The Strategist)

The Australian Army is set to dramatically boost its land-based guided missile capability with Australia’s decision to join a US-led program to develop the Lockheed Martin precision strike missile (PrSM). It’s a big step forward for the army, which had been limited to outdated towed artillery with a range of up to 30 kilometres. The PrSM, by contrast, has a range of between 60 and 500 kilometres, and can be launched from the M142 HIMARS (high-mobility artillery rocket system) that was demonstrated last month during the Talisman Sabre exercises.
