Poland got some on their F-16s, obviously pre-aimed at Kaliningrad...


Will the LRASM be integrated with B-1 too?
Will make for fine hunting tool for Chinese CVs once those became commonplace...

We have the answer to your question:

"According to the Pentagon, the allied weaponry included 19 new “Extended-Range” stealthy Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Attack Munitions launched by two B-1B bombers based out of Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar"


This is the land attack verion JASSM that was used this time.
How about antiship ones, the LRASM?

ewok40k, no ship targets have been discussed, so LRASM would not be a valid choice here. Plus, it is still in testing and has not reached initial operating capability yet. Latest test was in March. https://news.lockheedmartin.com/2018-03-19-Lockheed-Martins-Long-Range-Anti-Ship-Missile-Marks-Sixth-Successful-Flight-Mission.


so it is in the works. good.
can't but imagine regimental formation of B-1s appearing near Chinese CV
