The US Department of Defense ordered Raytheon to manufacture Tomahawk cruise missiles in the latest Block IV modification, Warspot reports, quoting the armyrecognition.com portal


Now Block IV. Pentagon ordered hundreds of Tomahawks of the latest modification


In total, under the contract for the production of the Tomahawks of the 15 Party (Lot 15) it is planned to purchase one hundred Block IV modified cruise missiles - according to the agreement, their total cost will be $ 143,27 million. The missiles should be delivered to the troops by August 2020.

The development of Block IV missiles was previously suspended due to the high cost of the program, moreover, it was reported to be closed. However, in January last year, it became known that a new generation of Tomahawks was created and successfully tested. 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. The Tomahawk rockets of the Block IV modification also differ from their predecessors by a more economical engine, which made it possible to increase the flight range to 1850 km.

    Tomahawks are beautiful rockets, no matter what they say. 35 years in service, it says a lot. True, with many upgrades ..

        Well in Syria they checked and the intended goals were amazed. And our potential friends have much more of these axes than we have calibers

          In Syria, this modification was not specifically verified. It is intended for both land and sea purposes. Harpoons can now be forgotten. It is a pity that this program was launched. Our calibers are not so universal. hi

                Oh, got it. Although I now understand why the Americans were in no hurry to buy this modification. For on this rocket there is a more expensive GSN as on PCR and spending such a rocket for a stationary ground target is expensive even for the USA

      were in the 80s and 90s. Now with such a 5-10 meter hit accuracy they are obvious antiques and the effect of using tomahawks comes at the expense of their massive use (I launched 200 pieces and even if not even half reached the target but the remaining ones have an effect). This is not to mention the fact that the rocket is subsonic and intercepted by Soviet missiles of the 80s.

        But ours make calibers "which have no analogues in the world / are ahead of foreign developments." If there were no benefit from them, then the Russian Federation would not be spent on calibers.

              You are trying to swap Cause and Effect. What the “conditional Joe and his son” wants - so that they have every day “three hamburgers” for each and every new “disposable” T-shirt every day, it’s like their public desire to preserve the current social level of life. And here lies the problem - HOW these “three hamburgers each” are provided, and by the fact that millions are dying of hunger in Africa, so that millions are working for a “chowder of food” in Asia in Europe too. Yes, don’t be surprised at that “holy Europe”, a huge part of which is essentially slave labor of illegal immigrants.
              Well, when the US authorities have a problem - how to keep the American cattle this "greasy" food, otherwise these bastards go to demonstrations and rallies, and still "not vote for those", then Baikes come up with about the "tyrant Assad," evil bloody Putin, "" short Eun. " And under this guise, the “do-it-yourself Joe” shouts “kill him,” and the “conditional Gary” drops bombs, ravages, or cuts the throat of an Iraqi child. am

      You are absolutely right.
      The US and Russia have nothing to share.
      Neither common borders, nor territorial claims to each other, nor trade competition. In both countries, in bulk resources. And oil, and gas, that in America, that in Russia - at least flood.
      Pure ambition and ego. Both want to be superpowers.

              I understand. sad The concept was not born today. He drove the (non-stupid) Russian authorities into the subcortex of the people's brain for centuries:
              "Yes, you are eternal poor, but you have pride."
              And the concept is successfully operated today. Not just that, more than 70% voted for the president. This was a clear vote for:
              1) poverty and 2) pride.
              There is nothing to be done. It will take another century to change consciousness.

              The only difference is in the flag under which the act of aggression is committed. Americans also always explain that they are fighting against the "bad" guys, and in fact they serve the interests of big business.
              So it is with us. Until the Turkish Stream arose, Russia had no interests in Syria, and then suddenly we discuss the integrity of Syria together with Turkey and Iran, without Assad))) And generally geopolitics ... It blows the difference like the wind, if you don’t look at the flags

      The answer is very simple - if you and your son will eat as much as the American driver and his son, then - the Americans will eat LESS !!! But they don’t want this, and that they would continue to “eat” more than any other people, they approve of and participate in the killing of any people on earth. negative
      PYSY: it is clear that by "eating" I did not mean just food, but a much more expanded definition and of course you do not personally overeat (you can eat) the American driver, but indirectly, if you stop looting the WORLD to the United States, the social there will be reduced level.
