One size fits all

Pentagon missile could boost jobs in aerospace here

The “Joint Common Missile” would replace several missile systems used by the Army and Navy. (The Air Force might buy in later.) Raytheon joined Boeing and Northop Grumman in announcing that they’d boost employment in Huntsville if they won the contract. I expect this has something to do with Jeff Sessions being on the Senate Armed Forces Committee and chairman of the Airland Subcommittee, but maybe I’m unduly cynical. Or maybe it’s because Terry Everett, another Alabamian, is on the House Committee and head of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee. Again, cynical. I’m sure that Huntsville is the best place for it.

  1. Well, US Missile Command (MICOM) is in or around Huntsville Alabama somewhere.
