U.S. Navy Shifts To Harpoon For P-8
HOOD RIVER, Ore. — The U.S. Navy is moving to integrate the Harpoon anti-ship weapon on the P-8 maritime patrol aircraft, replacing the SLAM-ER previously slated for that role.
The change is linked to weapons availability, says Fred Smith, director of business development for surveillance and engagement for Boeing. India also will receive the Harpoon. The P-8 also will be able to employ the Mk. 54 torpedo.
