    Guided bombs are becoming more costlier.

    I dont see any requirement or need for developing JDAM with wing kit to strike 45 miles away. For hitting targets like Radars and SAMs, Anti-radiations missile are more useful.


    Also, Using a costly JDAM with a wing tip for small pickup truck would be overrated and unnecessary expense.
