The “Tomahawk” is a U.S. Navy land attack cruise missile designed to be launched from surface ships and submarines. The Block III TLAM-C (“Tomahawk” Land Attack Missile) carries a conventional variant 1,000 pound class blast/fragmentation unitary warhead. Designed to fly at extremely low altitudes at high subsonic speeds, they are piloted over an evasive route by several mission tailored on board guidance systems. The first operational use of the “Tomahawk” was in Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and this missile type continues to be a very potent front line weapons system.
