Boeing (McDonnell Douglas) AGM-159 JASSM

The Boeing AGM-159A was the losing contender in the Air Force/Navy JASSM (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile) competition. After this had been won in April 1998 by the Lockheed Martin AGM-158A (q.v. for further information about the JASSM program and the general design requirements for the missile), the AGM-159 development program was stopped.

I have no exact data about the characteristics of Boeing's AGM-159A design.
