exactly like it says in the title


a USAF test of the JDAM from a f-22 raptor flying at M1.5 flying at 50 thousand feet

the ordnance was " std issue" with no range enhancements

read all about it here

thats a pretty neat trick to bomb people from outside the range of there SAMs and AAA .

Sorry but this topic was already posted on Jun 13th. Thread can be found Here.

BTW the distance was 24NM a.k.a. 27.6 Statue miles, not 28 Km.


An Air Force F-22 air dominance fighter, flying at a speed of Mach 1.5 and an altitude of 50,000 feet, released a GPS-aided, 1,000-pound Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) from a range of 24 nautical miles, destroying a ground target in the aircraft's fastest and highest JDAM delivery to date. Nellis Air Force Base (AFB), Nev., supplied the live warhead.
