That was my point, the only reason aerial bomb nukes are still in service is to allow for a non-all-out response like ICBMs + SLBMs, and the INF banned ground-launched BMs and CMs with decent range. ...

I guess now that the INF is off, B-61s could be replaced by IRBMs again anyway.

Okay, but surely mounting them upside-down just makes the missile longer due to the shape of the nosecone? What's the benefit? And how does the final stage propel itself forward if the nosecone is...

Standard DASS is a pretty large step-up on legacy RWR systems though. It's good to within less than 0.5 degrees on bearing and azimuth and of course radar has an A2G mode for detecting targets (as...

I'm not convinced that standard DASS doesn't do enough of a job to cue the missile anyway. The UK Tornado was not an ECR variant and was still able to use ALARM.
