Options for Fielding Ground-Launched Long-Range Missiles

Congressional Budget Office

No 56068, Reports from Congressional Budget Office

Abstract: The Department of Defense (DoD) has expressed concern that potential opponents such as Russia and China could prevent the United States from easily gaining air and naval superiority in future military campaigns. In this report, CBO examines some of the challenges U.S. forces might face in the current threat environment and the extent to which DoD could mitigate those challenges by procuring and fielding ground-launched long-range missiles. CBO identifies several types of existing weapon systems that DoD could adapt, at an up-front cost of $1 billion to $6 billion, to give U.S.
