I get your reasoning for diversifying sensors pop but LRASM also has a terminal passive IR that's combined with that terminal passive radar, both of which negate ESM detection and EA risks, thus reducing early-warning probability. Those considerations are going to grow during the shelf-life of a zero-hour T/hawk.

Japan have been looking at the JSM for some time, and now it's clear that Japan will buy JSM for the F-35.

THe last I read was that it was a multi-mode seeker that used passive-RF to close then active on terminal. That was a couple years ago though who knows what they've got cooked up since.

Raytheon touts their new seeker will have "all.weather* capability implying an advantage over LRASM in adverse weather
