F-35 & Land-Based JSM Combat Simulation

Norway has decided to procure the F-35, the Joint Strike Fighter, manufactured by Lockheed Martin to replace its F-16s. The Royal Norwegian Air Force needs a modern weapon system for its new aircraft, and has decided to develop a new missile, the Joint Strike Missile (JSM), which can be carried externally and internally in the bomb bay of the F-35. The JSM Weapon Data Link Network will be a Link 16 compatible data link and will be compliant with standard military equipment. The JSM missile is primarily designed for operations from fixed wing aircraft platforms. Concept studies are under way to establish the requirements related to other platforms. F-35 partner nations have expressed great interest in the new missile, some of the partner nations are funding work for integration of the JSM to the F-35.
