This is How USA Could Destroy Russian S-300 in The Future - DARPA's Project https://youtu.be/DlTwsw1N7cA
Use of low-cost cruise missiles as recon drones networked to a strike fighter that commands a modified transport plane turned into a missile truck to launch low-cost cruise missiles to hit the S-300 SAM radar. The S-300 SAMs (SA-10 Grumble) would be expected to destroy some cruise missiles, but these long-range SAMs cost way more than the cruise missiles and would not be able to destroy all the missiles.

The US Air Force has released a request for proposals for its new Long Range Standoff (LRSO) nuclear cruise missile program. It wants the new weapon to be able to outwit Russia's state-of-the-art S-300 and S-400 air defense systems with the announced purpose to "keep the peace" in the world.
"The emerging Long-Range Stand-Off weapon (LRSO) is intended to function as a critical element of the US military nuclear arsenal," Lt. Gen. Jack Weinstein, Deputy Chief of Staff for Strategic Deterrence and Nuclear Integration explained in his interview with Scout Warrior military website.
"In effect, the rapid evolution of better networked, longer-range, digital air-defenses using much faster computer processing power will continue to make even stealth attack platforms more vulnerable; current and emerging air defenses, such as Russian-built S-300s and S-400s are able to be cued by lower-frequency “surveillance radar” – which can simply detect that an enemy aircraft is in the vicinity – and higher-frequency “engagement radar” capability. This technology enables air defenses to detect targets at much farther ranges on a much larger number of frequencies including UHF, L-band and X-band," the website says.
"Russian officials and press reports have repeatedly claimed its air-defenses can detect and target many stealth aircraft, however some US observers believe Russia often exaggerates its military capabilities. Nonetheless, many US developers of weapons and stealth platforms take Russian-built air defenses very seriously. Many maintain the existence of these systems has greatly impacted US weapons development strategy," it goes on to say.
Hence the US Armed Forces hope that its new Long-Range Standoff Missile with nuclear capability "may be one of a very few assets, weapons or platforms able to penetrate emerging high-tech air defenses." "Such an ability is, as a result, deemed crucial to nuclear deterrence and the commensurate need to prevent major-power warfare." https://sputniknews.com/us/201611111047339091-us-new-cruise-missile/

Lt. Gen. Jack Weinstein provided his own explanation.
"If, for example, the Russian military believed having an advanced nuclear cruise missile would give them a distinct advantage – they would be likely to pursue it. As a result, US deterrence strategy needs to ensure its offensive nuclear fire power can match or exceed that of any potential rival. This conceptual framework provides the foundation for why many US military leaders believe it is vital for the Air Force to have an operational LRSO," providing the explanation for how the new weapon is designed to "keep the peace."
According to the USAir Force, LRSO is set to replace the aging AGM-86B Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM), which is currently able to fire from a B-52 and which has far exceeded its intended life span, having emerged in the early 1980s with a 10-year design life.
Unlike the ALCM, LRSO will be configured to fire from B-2 and B-21 bombers as well, service officials said; both the ALCM and LRSO are designed to fire both conventional and nuclear weapons. Up to two contract awards are expected in the 4th quarter of 2017. The Air Force plans to start fielding LRSO by 2030. According to a report in Inside Defense website, the Air Force intends to buy 1,000 new cruise missiles and expects the LRSO program to cost about $17 billion for the missile and its nuclear-capable warhead.

- This is an unflown AGM-86A, the first version of the U.S. Air Force's air-launched cruise missile (ALCM). Designed to carry either a conventional or nuclear warhead, it had a turbofan jet engine, flew at subsonic speeds, had a range of 1,125 kilometers (700 miles), and used an inertial navigation system with terrain-contour matching radar. Because the missile flew close to the ground, it was difficult for enemy radars to detect. Most AGM-86As were used in flight tests in 1976 and none became operational. Subsequent versions of the ALCM with conventional or nuclear warheads and a longer range have been produced and deployed on B-1 and B-52 bombers.

The old B-52 can carry 20 of these things, but the bomber is ancient and the missiles were first fielded in 1982 and are probably obsolete. Development is being done for the Long-Range Stand-Off (LRSO) weapon, I would imagine.

In 2007, the USAF announced its intention to retire all of its AGM-129 ACMs, and to reduce the ALCM fleet by more than 500 missiles, leaving 528 nuclear cruise missiles. The ALCM force will be consolidated at Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, and all excess cruise missile bodies will be destroyed.

The reductions are in part a result of the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty requirement to go below 2,200 deployed nuclear weapons by 2012, with the AGM-129 ACM chosen because it has reliability problems and also higher maintenance costs.

Even with the SLEP, the remaining AGM-86s were to reach their end of service by 2020, leaving the B-52 without a nuclear mission. However, in 2012, the USAF announced plans to extend the useful life of the missiles until at least 2030.

The USAF planned to award a contract for the development of the replacement Long-Range Stand-Off (LRSO) weapon in 2015. Unlike the AGM-86, the LRSO will be carried on multiple aircraft, including the B-52, the B-2 Spirit, and the Northrop Grumman B-21. Like the AGM-86, the LRSO can be armed with either a conventional or nuclear warhead. The LRSO program is to develop a weapon that can penetrate and survive integrated air defense systems and prosecute strategic targets. Both conventional and nuclear versions of the weapon are required to reach initial operational capability (IOC) before the retirement of their respective ALCM versions, around 2030.

The technology development contracts were to be submitted before the end of 2012. In March 2014 a further 3-year delay in the project was announced by the Department of Defense, delaying a contract award until fiscal year 2018. The House Armed Services Committee moved to reject this delay. The delay was caused by financial pressures and an uncertain acquisition plan, and allowed by the long remaining service life left for the AGM-86 and lack of urgent necessity compared to other defense needs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGM-86_ALCM

Home on jam only works with a single jamming projector, early cold war style.

Modern projectors are distributed and digital, and can create a virtual source of jam between them.

So your home on jam rockets would just be hitting the ground between two jamming trucks which could have kilometers of distance between them. Only limit to jamming truck separation is line of sight.

Okay first of all that's not how EM emissions work.

Second, why do you assume technology for SEAD/DEAD equipment hasn't advanced?

So you're saying that somehow (magic, presumably) this makes it so the radar antennas don't actually emit RF frequency.
