 AGM-86 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The ALCM is being replaced in the nuclear role by the AGM-129 ACM, with most ALCM's being converted to carry conventional warheads.
The small, winged AGM-86B/C missile is powered by a turbofan jet engine that propels it at sustained subsonic speeds and can be launched from both high and low altitudes.
The Boeing AGM-86B and AGM-86C ALCM are sub-sonic air-launched cruise missiles (ALCMs) operated by the United States Air Force.

 AGM-129A ACM
A total of 461 ACMs were acquired; the original plannedprocurement was 1,460 missiles, but due to budget constraints and the end of the Cold War this number was reduced.
The first operational unit to be equipped with the ACM was the 410th Bomb Wing at K.I. Sawyer AFB in Michigan.
The ACM's turbofan engine exhaust consists of a 2D nozzle.

Measurements for the F-22, F-117, B-2, Advanced Cruise Missile (ACM), and Bird of Prey are highly classified, as the SR-71 may also still be, so the values listed above are educated guesses, at best.
Regardless of these deficiencies, the table does a good job of exemplifying relative trends in lowering RCS and the significant improvements made since the advent of stealth aircraft.

 ALCM
Because the intended successor, the AGM-129 ACM was built in much smaller numbers than anticipated, the AGM-86 will remain in the USAF's arsenal for the quite some time, although most of them will be converted to CALCMs, which see below.
The AGM-86 ALCM (Air-Launched Cruise Missile) is the major long-range standoff attack missile of the U.S. Air Force's B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers.
The main change is the substitution of the nuclear warhead with a conventional 900 kg (2000 lb) class blast-fragmentation warhead, and the AGM-86C is therefore also known as CALCM (Conventional ALCM).
