By 2005-10, modestly equipped states could produce LACMs with a range of 500 to 700 km (8.5 m in length, an .8 m body diameter, and a 2.4 m wingspan) that could fit into a standard 12 m shipping container along with a small erector constructed for launching the LAGM directly from the container.
Our leaders value LAGMs for their ability to penetrate enemy air defenses, strike at long ranges (over 1,000 miles from the launch platform for the TLAM), and, most importantly, to do so without endangering the lives of US personnel.
