I haven't anything about a selection. The last I heard (6 June) both Lockheed Martin and the Raytheon/Boeing teams had only submitted proposals.

Lockheed Martin and the Raytheon/Boeing teams are competing for the contract to replace thousands of AGM-114 Hellfire and AGM-65 Maverick missiles with the JAGM, which has a tri-mode seeker to introduce the capability of striking moving targets in any weather.

I jumped the gun again, it seems.. another senior moment
One would hope the Army clarifies its selection criteria before any decision.. we've seen enough protests from losing vendors in the past leading to unnecessary delays and costs.

JAGM's prospects have brightened considerably since last year when it barely survived being cut. Apparently common sense has prevailed and the DoD realizes the advantage of having a single versatile missile to replace multiple variants of TOW, Hellfire and Maverick, all of which have been around for decades now. Like SDB-II, JAGM features an advanced tri-mode seeker for enhanced lethality against fixed or moving targets.

If it is supposed to replace TOW II missiles, why aren't they being designed to fit on Bradleys' and other ground users? Will it fit?
