This is Boeing's next big destructive bad boy. "Boeing is in production on at least one "proprietary" strike weapon system" says Shelley Lavender, VP and general manager of Boeing's global strike systems. Nobody knows anything about it.
The weapon was shown for the first time at the Surface Navy Association's annual conference in Washington D.C. It could be a Tomahawk-ish cruise missile that can fit in the F-35's weapons bay or some other munition. All we know is that it is big and unlike anything in the current US arsenal.
Here’s what Bill Sweetman wrote at Av Week after a Boeing official’s admission that it had a secret new strike weapon (I’ve got to admit, I was in the room, but chose to write about the new stealthy Super Hornet that Boeing unveiled at the same press conference.):
Boeing is in production on at least one “proprietary” strike weapon system, claims Shelley Lavender, vice president and general manager of global strike systems. But Lavender refused July 20 at the Farnborough International Airshow to provide more information when pressed.
“I have nothing further for you on that,” the executive said.
