"The United States will test the AGM-158C (LRASM) anti-ship missile, which is called the "killer of the Russian Black Sea Fleet", - reports gazeta.ru. The missile with a range of about 950 kilometers is resistant to interference and is designed to detect targets using on-board sensors, without relying on guidance from a drone or a warship. Such a missile's range allows you to keep the entire Black Sea at gunpoint, even from anywhere on its shores...
"Recently, the Office of the Director of Operational Testing and Evaluation of the US Secretary of Defense's Adviser on Operational and Combat Tests and Evaluations of Weapons Systems) published an annual report. It said that the current version of LRASM still has multiple hardware and software glitches, but the Navy should rigorous testing process of the new version to ensure that it demonstrates its capabilities under realistic operating conditions. "LRASM 1.1 should be loaded using the full set of anticipated operating conditions", - avia.pro cites the report.
The publication notes that such statements by the American military are not only provocative, but also very dangerous, since Russia is unlikely to agree to tests of American missiles in the waters of the Black Sea and is able to respond to any dangerous actions against its fleet, including launches of its Zircon hypersonic missiles off the coast of the United States.
