 AGM-86 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Boeing AGM-86B and AGM-86C ALCM are sub-sonic air-launched cruise missiles (ALCMs) operated by the United States Air Force.
AGM-86B: Litton inertial navigation element with terrain contour-matching updates; AGM 86C: Litton INS element integrated with multi-channel onboard GPS
AGM-86B: 890 km/h (Mach 0.73); AGM 86C: classified (nominal high subsonic)

Air-to-surface missile (ASM)An air-to-surface missile (also, air-to-ground missile, ASM or AGM) is a missile designed to be launched from military aircraft (bombers, attack aircraft, fighter aircraft or other kinds) and strike ground targets on land, at sea, or both.
They are similar to guided glide bombs but to be considered a missile, they usually contain some form of propulsion system.

 AGM-86C/D Conventional Air Launched Cruise Missile
On 21 April 1999 Boeing was awarded a $41,310,000 firm-fixed-price contract to provide for the conversion of 95 excess AGM -86B Air Launched Cruise Missiles to Block I AGM-86C Conventional Air Launched Cruise Missiles.
CONTRACTS April 21, 1999 - Contract to provide for the conversion of 95 excess AGM -86B Air Launched Cruise Missiles to Block I AGM-86C Conventional Air Launched Cruise Missiles.
Block 0/I missiles are being retrofitted to Block IA with a precision accuracy kit that uses a third generation GPS receiver along with advanced navigation software, and a GPS anti-jam electronics module and antenna for a significant increase in jamming immunity.

 AGM-86 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Boeing AGM-86B and AGM-86C ALCM are sub-sonic air-launched cruise missiles (ALCMs) operated by the United States Air Force.
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 ALCM is being replaced in the nuclear role by the AGM-129 ACM, with most ALCM's being converted to carry conventional warheads.

 AGM-86 Air-Launched Cruise Missile [ALCM] United States Nuclear Forces
The missile used in the flight tests was an AGM-86 "A" model which was slightly smaller than the the final production version, the AGM-86B.
On 21 September 1982, the 416th became the first operational wing to conduct an ALCM operational test launch, and on 16 December, the 416th was declared the first combat-ready ALCM-equipped wing.
During the 30-minute flight, the ALCM successfully negotiated four terrain correlation mapped areas and completed a terrain correlation update in each area.

 Boeing B-52 Stratofortress -- Chapter 19
On February 16, 1991, seven B-52Gs armed with 39 AGM-86C conventionally-armed cruise missiles took off from Barksdale AFB bound for Iraq.
The number of B-52Gs committed to the Persian Gulf was somewhere between 74 and 86.
The 806th Bomb Wing (Provisional) was based at RAF Fairford in Britain.

 Cruise Missiles Parts I, II
Though the ALCM has had numerous teething troubles, both in software (resulting in the recent flight tests over Northern Canada serving to acquire calibration data on flat polar terrain performance and Coriolis effect compensation) and in powerplant performance, it is an effective system.
The overall significance of the ALCM is however far lessened when one considers also the effects of submarine and ground launched theatre nuclear cruise missiles, weapons of comparable capabilities with very flexible modes of deployment.
In spite of the fact that the ALCM airframe was not optimised for minimum radar signature, either in shape or materials, it has a small cross section which will apparently be reduced by the use of stealth technologies in future upgrades.

 AIR LAUNCHED CRUISE MISSILE ALCM AGM-86
A second strike of a bunker buster 1,000+ pound AGM-86B had to be targeted against the Iraqi bunker to destroy it.
All the USAF launched ALCM cruise missiles were Block 1 types equipped with heavy conventional warheads for bunker busting.
The USAF originally intended the ALCM as a nuclear strike weapon but has since modified the A model into conventional warhead B models.

 Boeing AGM-86 Air-Launched Cruise Missile
The AGM-86 air-launched cruise missile (ALCM) is an unmanned air-to-ground weapon designed for launch from the B-52 Stratofortress and B-1 Lancer bombers.
The ALCM on exhibit was used for pre-production flight testing at Hill AFB in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The ALCM is powered by the Williams International F107-WR-101 turbofan engine, which produces 600 pounds of thrust.

 [4.0] ALCM & SLCM
Boeing produced the first version of the ALCM, the "AGM-86A", where AGM stood for "Air to Ground Missile", with first test flight in 1976.
Both missiles would end up having a terrain-following guidance system and a Williams Research F107 turbofan engine, with 2.65 kN (270 kgp / 600 lbf) thrust, though each type of missile would have different versions of the guidance system and engine.

 AGM-129A ACM
The AGM-129A Advanced Cruise Missile or ACM is a significant improvement over the USAF's other main cruise missile, the AGM-86 ALCM.
The ACM includes extensivelow-observables or Stealth characteristics, and has improved range, accuracy, survivality and targetingflexibility over the earlier ALCM.

 ALCM
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).
Once at low-level, the AGM-86B uses its McDonnell-Douglas AN/DPW-23 TERCOM system to find its way to the target.

 General Dynamics AGM-109 Air-launched Cruise Missile Test Body
After flight testing, conducted between July 1979 and February 1980, the AGM-86 was declared the winner of the ALCM competition and the development of the AGM-109 contender ended.
The Air Force was already developing the AGM-86 air-launched cruise missile (ALCM) and the Navy was working on the BGM-109 sea-launched cruise missile (SLCM), with plans for an air-launched version.
The second was the fly-off competition for the final ALCM production contract between the AGM-86 and the AGM-109, the air-launched version of the BGM-109 SLCM.

 AGM-69 Short Range Attack Missile - SRAM - Aircraft Launched Missiles - Strategic Air Command - Nuclear Warhead
Instead, it was then planned to eventually replace the AGM-69A with the AGM-86 ALCM and the forthcoming ASALM (Advanced Strategic Air-Launched Missile).
In 1977, the new motor was combined with other upgrades, including an improved guidance system (with enhanced computing capability) and the W-80 warhead of the AGM-86 ALCM.
In 1978, however, the B-1A was cancelled, and the USAF found a way to extend the lifespan of the old motor to the originally planned 5 years, and these two events killed the AGM-69B program.

For a while, it was the nuclear loadout for the venerable RGM-109 Tomahawk cruise missile, the AGM-86 ALCM, and the B61 tactical bomb.
The W80 is a very flexible device because it has a very wide yield selection, starting with a relatively paltry 0.3 kilotons and extending to close to 300kt.
The W-80 warhead, which surface penetrators will likely be encasing, was designed in the early 1980s as a tactical warhead for cruise missiles and gravity bombs.

 AGM-86B ALCM
The AGM-86B ALCM (Air Launched Conventional Missile) is armed with a nuclear warhead and can be carried and launched internally and externally from the B-52H bomber.
The AGM-86 is the longest range conventional armed missile in the US Air Force inventory and provides the B-52 with the capability to accurately strike nearly any target in the world, without the support of bases located outside the continental United States.
Its long range allows the B-52H to operate out of the enemy air defenses while AGM-86B's cruise flight profile makes itself survivable against the air defenses.

Under the terms of the Stategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) between the US and Russia, however, the B-1B is no longer capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

 DefenceNotes
The nose-profile of AGM-86 ALCM (Air-Launched Cruise Missile) of USAF was re-designed to reduce its RCS.
A cruise missile needs booster (which is always of solid fuel) for initial take-off but if the cruise missile is launched from the aircraft, like USAF AGM-86 ALCM (Air-Launched Cruise Missile), then there is no need of booster.
The infrared signature of cruise missile is also less because of use of turbojets or turbofans instead of rocket motor.
