Defense Firms Pitch Arms, Gear to an Army Looking for Relevance in the Pacific (Marcus Weisgerber, Defense One)

Lockheed Martin will attempt to fire its new Precision Strike Missile 499 kilometers, roughly as far as Washington, D.C., is to Cleveland, in a test of a weapon Army leaders deem essential to countering China.

If successful, the PrSM—pronounced “prism”—will travel about 200 kilometers farther than the Army’s current generation of rocket artillery. Another PrSM flew more than 400 kilometers in a May flight test.
