Pt. Mugu, Calif. - Aug. 23, 2002 -- A Tactical Tomahawk, the next generation of Tomahawk Cruise Missile, is launched during a contractor test and evaluation.  The Tomahawk missile provides a long-range, highly survivable, unmanned land attack weapon system capable of pinpoint accuracy.  This new Tomahawk includes many improvements such as launch platform mission planning capability, in-flight retargeting, battle damage assessment capability, and in-flight health and status reporting, through a satellite data link.  The Tactical Tomahawk (Block IV) is due to reach the fleet in 2004, and will supplement the current Tomahawk Block II/III inventories.  The Tomahawk is launched from surface ships and submarines and was first employed operationally during Operation Desert Storm.  .Credit: U.S. Navy via CNP.
