MISSLE

By Dean James AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

The U.S. Navy is testing a new way to guide the Raytheon Tomahawk land attack missile (TLAM) to accurately hit moving targets. This is HUGE!

During the test conducted off the coast of San Nicolas Island, Calif. on Jan. 27, the destroyer USS Kidd launched the Tomahawk and handed control of the missile over to the Super Hornet F/A-18E/F  pilot who guided it into the target ship and punched a hole through a shipping container.

USNI reports:

“It demonstrates the viability of long-range communications for position updates of moving targets,” Capt. Joe Mauser, Tomahawk Weapons System (PMA-280) program manager for Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) said in a Feb. 5 Navy statement.
“This success further demonstrates the existing capability of Tomahawk as a netted weapon, and in doing so, extends its reach beyond fixed and re-locatable points to moving targets.”

If the Navy can perfect the methodology, it would give the service an almost 1,000 nautical mile extension – the range of the TLAM — of its lethal anti-surface radius for its newer guided missile destroyers, which are not fitted with the service’s aging RGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missile. 

AMAZING!
