Air Force?[edit]

I glanced at the external links of the article, but could not find the description that the USAF is involved. Is it true this missile will also be launched from A-10s and F-15Es? If true, is there any source to support that? --marsian 02:13, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Operators?[edit]

If the program was canceled, then nobody is using this missile. The "operators" section should go. Spartan198 (talk) 00:36, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Landing with munitions?[edit]

I looked up the subject of jettisoning munitions before landing, and everyone who sounds knowledgeable says that Navy pilots would never jettison expensive munitions like guided missiles just to land, unless there was an emergency. They frequently jettison dumb bombs, drop tanks and fuel, but never missiles (provided a standard loadout), and it largely has to do with the maximum safe landing weight of the aircraft, not the safety of the munition (although the powerful warheads of a 500lb bomb would do a lot more damage than any missile would, which helps give incentive to ditch those). So I don't understand the part about the safeing system "allowing them to land with unexpended ordinance". Perhaps the system makes it safer to land with these missiles, but they already routinely do it, so I don't see how it "allows them" to..45Colt 14:21, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
