        Big Green Weenie is a Jarhead thing.

        The Army has been the Big Green Machine for like...ever. I joined in 1976 and we never used that phrase.

          The MGM-140 ATACMS is not in production any longer, and it is being replaced by the sleeker Precision Strike Missile (PrSM). I don't see what advantages the SM-6 has in a land-to-land or land-to-surface role that the PrSM doesn't have. Similar range and speed, but the ATACMS/PrSM has a much larger warhead than the SM-6. Unless the PrSM doesn't have maritime targeting capability, and adapting the SM-6 is going to be cheaper.

            What???? The Army doesn't have the Big Green Weenie?

            How do you make life miserable for junior troops?

              Wonder if it's an all of the above menu option with the launcher loading the appropriate pod depending on mission.

              And precision allows warhead size to decrease.

                Been awhile since I was one but I think the last 20 years have made for a whole new set of Joe words to be used in its place.
