    Two new missiles in the pipeline for longer-range Army fires – By Todd South (Defense News) / Dec 23, 2023

    The Army is slated to have two new missile systems in soldiers’ hands in 2024.

    The two missiles seek to solve a couple of distance problems for the service under its wider long-range precision fires modernization program.

    The Precision Strike Missile, or PrSM, will cover ranges up to an estimated 300 miles and replace the legacy Army Tactical Missile System, or ATACMS, which can reach a maximum distance of about 190 miles. The Army is seeking to more than double that distance through an effort launched in February 2023 with Raytheon that will be part of the system’s Increment 4 development.

    To give the Army the speed and reach that its leaders see as key to facing peer adversaries such as the Russian and Chinese militaries, the service is leaning on the development of an entirely new technology in the Long Range Hypersonic Weapon.
