Weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin has just released a video promoting the special features of the AGM-158C LRASM, a stealth anti-ship cruise missile model developed for the US Navy, expected to be commissioned in 2019, according to Livejournal.

LRASM stands for Long Range Anti-Ship Missile.

In the video, the US military force is called the `Blue Army`, while the enemy warship group is called the `Red Army`.

These warships and aircraft process information and fire LRASM missiles.

The US Department of Defense said LRAMS has a range of over 370 km, while experts estimate this number could reach 560 km.

When entering an area near the target, where satellite communication signals are jammed or interrupted, the missile will fly according to a predetermined route.

When approaching the target, the missile quickly lowers its altitude to close to the sea surface to avoid being detected by the radar system on the enemy warship.

LRASM’s 450 kg piercing and fragmentation warhead is capable of destroying many different types of warships.

The LRASM shell locked its target on the Slava-class cruiser.

However, in reality, it takes many LRASM shells to destroy a fleet of Russian warships of this type.

In addition, LRASM will have to overcome the final shield, which is the warship’s decoy system.
