Raytheon JSOW missile available with cluster ammunition payload!

Raytheon is producer of the JSOW Joint Stand-Off Weapon, a missile that is available with cluster ammunition payload. That variant is using BLU-97and BLU-108 cluster ammunition.

The JSOW is in use with much of the US Air Force fighter aircraft (such asthe F-16) and is selected for the Joint Strike Fighter currently underdevelopment.

JSOW has been used in both Iraq and Afghanistan recently, though I cannot confirm that cluster ammunition versions have been used. Moreover, Raytheon is responsible for the AGM-129 nuclear cruise missile,though it was announced earlier this year that the US plan to retire this one.
