AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missile [ACM]

The ACM is a low-observable, air- launched, strategic missile with significant improvements over the ALCM-B in range, accuracy, and survivability. Armed with a W80 warhead, it is designed to evade air and ground-based defenses in order to strike heavily defended, hardened targets at any location within any potential enemy's territory. The ACM is designed for B-52H external carriage.

Missile procurement is complete. Procurement of the AGM-129 was halted at 460 missiles in lieu of the originally planned 1,460. FY 96, FY 97 and FY98 funds are required to complete the last 15% of mission support development work.
