US Navy received "anniversary" Tomahawk

43
The Tomahawk missiles adopted by the American army in 1983 for a long time will remain the basis of high-precision US weapons. According to the portal navyrecognition.com, Raytheon and the U.S. Navy celebrate a peculiar anniversary - the fleet transferred to the 4000th Tomahawk rocket.

When it comes to operational flexibility, accuracy and firepower, no other cruise missile in the world can compare with Tomahawk. We are not resting on our laurels, and Raytheon, in partnership with the US Navy, is upgrading Tomahawk to provide the fleet with the ability to cope with any tasks.
- said Mike Jarrett, vice president of Raytheon Air Warfare Systems, reports "Warspot".

US Navy received "anniversary" Tomahawk

Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile


The anniversary rocket was Tomahawk latest Block IV modification. The US Navy tested this missile in January of this year, after which Raytheon began to ship them to the troops. The key difference of the Block IV modification from previous developments is the ability to track the movement of the target in real time and the change of the target after the launch of the rocket. In addition, the Tomahawk missiles of the Block IV modification differ from their predecessors by a more economical engine, which made it possible to increase the flight range to 1850 km.

Tomahawk rockets have been modified several times. In addition to the ship version, there are "Tomahawks" underwater, ground and air-based, which can carry various types of warheads (including nuclear) and are in service with the American and British armies. The cost of one rocket is about $ 1,5 million. It is known that during the service Tomahawk missiles were used for military purposes 2300 times. It is planned that the "Tomahawks" will remain in service with the American army until at least 2040 year.

            I doubt that they would have fired so much. And about the air you did not answer. I found only that info that the development of the air version was discontinued and the missiles were never released.

          Americans have the only B-52 tomahawk air carrier. B-1 and B-2 can only carry free-falling bombs.

                    Passion boils also because the US government has closed access to information about the situation in the area of ​​the volcano. And ignorance breeds speculation

                        That's for sure, scientists say that the eruption could lead to nuclear winter on the entire planet for five years. But the states will get the most. Therefore, those who are richer buy land and real estate in safer places.

          Where did you get 7000? They were actively produced in the 90s, then the pace decreased and again increased during the operation in Iraq to 440 per year. And after its completion, it first fell to 150, and in recent years to 50 a year.
          During the operation in Libya, the 2000th missile was launched from the destroyer.

    What amazes me is if there were an article about a Soviet (Russian) cruise missile with such an age, then there would have been clacking screaming with howls and antics that Russia can’t produce ANYTHING by itself, but uses only the Soviet reserve.
