Just when you thought the U.S. Defense Department couldn’t come up with any new bad-assery in their weapons arsenal, they do. It’s called the Tomahawk Land Attack Missile (TLAM), and it’s created by Raytheon.
What makes this new missile, which the Navy is called a “game changer” different than previous versions of Tomahawk Cruise Missiles? Two things; it can be guided and directed by a fighter jet, as you’ll see in the video below, and it can change directions in mid-course.
The missile has an affective range of 1,000 miles, which gives it a reach of approximately twice the distance of any other nation’s naval missiles. China has a similar cruise missile in its arsenal, but it cannot change directions once fired and it only has a maximum reach of 500 miles.
